Description/Abstract

Effective-medium theories for predicting conditionally averaged velocity field and hydrodynamic transport coefficients of monodisperse suspensions are extended to bidisperse suspensions. The predictions of the theory are shown to agree very well with the results of direct numerical simulations of bidisperse suspensions with hard-sphere configurations up to volume fractions at which phase separation in bidisperse hard-sphere systems are observed.
