The Mechanics of Fluid - Particle Systems

R. H. Macmillan


The study of the interaction of particles moving relative to fluids has had a long history and has led to many useful operations particularly in modern agriculture. Of special interest is the trajectory of particles and crop components but, until recently, it has not been possible to easily determine these. However with the recent publication of a trajectory plotting system and an associated monograph giving examples of its application, this need has now been met.Both should find ready application in education, research and design in the agricultural engineering industries. Copies of the trajectory plotting program and the associated monograph can be obtained at the addresses given in Section 4 below.
