Closure for the Eulerian modelling of two-phase flows have been developed, based upon extensions of the theory of Tchen of the dispersion of particles in homogeneous turbulence. This model has been validated using large-eddy simulation of homogeneous turbulence, jets loaded with particles, and bubbly flows. In addition with k-epsilon model for the continuous phase, and closures for the Reynolds stresses of the dispersed phase, this theory has been implemented in 2D and 3D software solving the Eulerian two-phase equations (Mélodif in 2D, as a research code, and ESTET-ASTRID in 3D). These softwares have been applied to complex situations of industrial interest.
