Chapter 1 reviews single-phase fluid dynamics, stressing key concepts and equations in a step-by-step, hopefully insightful, fashion that are important perquisites for studying two-phase flow or multiphase flow systems.
In general, all of the book chapters contain several sample problems and solutions, which illustrate the outlined theory and provide approaches to find simplified analytic descriptions of complex two-phase flow phenomena.
Ice cream produced by the two-phase process had good fat destabilization and slow meltdown with moderate overrun, suggesting that this technique can be successful in promoting desirable structure in ice cream formation without added emulsifier.
The two-phase process has been successfully employed to produce an acceptable ice cream with no added emulsifier that behaved similarly to a conventional emulsified product.
