Entrainment (engineering)



See entrainment for other types.

Entrainment as commonly used in various branches of engineering may be defined as the entrapment of one substance by another substance.[1] For example:

  • The entrapment of liquid droplets or solid particulates in a flowing gas.
  • The entrapment of gas bubbles or solid particulates in a flowing liquid.
  • Given two mutually insoluble liquids, the entrapment of droplets of one liquid into the other liquid.
  • Given two gases, the entrapment of one gas into the other gas.
  • The intentional entrapment of air bubbles into concrete.
