This lesson covers the detailed explanation of the drift flux model, a fundamental concept in fluid This lesson covers the final portion of the drift flux model, a concept used in fluid dynamics. It explains the derivation of the drift flux model and how it can be incorporated into different expressions of mixture properties like density and in situ velocities. The lesson also discusses the concept of drift flux and how it can be averaged over the entire cross-sectional area. It further explains the assumptions made in the drift flux model and how to correct these assumptions to incorporate average quantities. The lesson also introduces the concept of a distribution parameter and how it can be used to simplify the drift flux model.

- The drift flux model is a concept used in fluid dynamics to describe the relative motion between phases in a two-phase flow.
- The model assumes that the drift flux is constant over the entire cross-sectional area, which can be a drastic assumption for most flow situations.
- To correct this assumption, the drift flux can be averaged over the entire cross-sectional area.
- The lesson introduces the concept of a distribution parameter, which can be used to simplify the drift flux model.
- The distribution parameter is defined as the ratio of the average of the product of flux and concentration to the product of the averages.
