This paper is aimed at the application of a model for simulating the dispersed turbulent flows. The presented model proceeds from a kinetic equation for the probability density function of the particle velocity distribution in turbulent flow. This approach is called the diffusion-inertia model (DIM). Applications of the model to droplet and bubble flows are presented. In the case of vaporized liquid, the interphase heat and mass transfer is introduced by adding the corresponding governing equations. This extended version of the DIM was applied to simulating the boiling water flow in a heated pipe.
