The requirement of a greater understanding of the behavior of solids-gas systems has shown itself profoundly with the advancement of science and technology during recent years. The range and variety of processes in which these systems play an important role is exceptionally broad. These processes range from meteorological disturbances such as dust storms, rain and snow, to the use of vacuum cleaning equipment. With the advancement of aircraft and space technology the influence of these systems is again felt in such cases as the motion of rockets, missiles and aircraft in flight, the behavior of liquid droplets or metallic particles in rocket engines and many other associated problems.
