Transport of particles by a carrier fluid is an important, ubiquitous process. Few of many obvious examples are the blood flow that feeds oxygen to the different parts of our bodies, wind-assisted pollination, sediment transport in sand storms, avalanches, or rivers, cloud formation, and pyroclastic flows. In industry one can think of the flocculation/sedimentation processes in the treatment of drinking water, circulating fluidized bed reactors, sediment transport in land reclamation works, and more.
