In very dilute mixtures composed of highly inertial solid particles, such a local and unsteady behavior is the result of the particle interactions with very distant and independent turbulent eddies, namely with different dynamic and thermal turbulent scales. Such interactions strongly modify the local particle velocity and temperature distributions, changing the local evolution of the properties of the dispersed phase. Their knowledge is thus crucial when modeling unsteady particle-laden turbulent flows. In this work, the focus is on the particle temperature distribution. Its characterization is provided by means of an analysis of the two-particle correlation functions in the frame of the direct numerical simulation of non-isothermal homogeneous isotropic, statistically stationary, turbulent flows.
