We study the dispersion of of multi-heavy-particle sets in an isotropic turbulent flow using the Lagrangian model, Kinematic Simulation. The simplified equation of motion of heavy particle in turbulent flow is introduced with a full description of the Kinematic Simulation model. The evolutions of the multi-heavy-particle sets in turbulent flow, shape and size, are plotted for different particle characteristic; different particle inertia and gravity, which leads to some information about the turbulent structures.
