This work is devoted to the behavior of solid particles in a
flat plate turbulent boundary layer. The solid phase is
considered to be as a continuum. A two-fluid model
coupled both phases is used. The turbulence closure model
is achieved by Prandtls effective viscosity model.
The proposed numerical solution of model is based on
finite difference scheme. The results are shown to be in a
good agreement with the experimental results. This model
endows the particulate phase with diffusivity term, while
retaining the small volume fraction. Graphs are drawn to
show the effect of suspended particles on the flow
