The gas-particle two-phase flow has been widely and intensively applied and investigated in recent decades. It is very difficult to describe such a non-linear and stochastic industrial system using accurate mathematical language. In this chapter, the principles and its applications are introduced and discussed regarding the modeling of the gas-particle two-phase flow.
