Multiphase Flows - Simulation, Experiment and Application

Home Conference Short Course Information & Organisation Registration

Short Course

Our Short Course, one and a half days - from Tuesday morning until Wednesday noon, is designed to provide knowledge on the use of numerical and experimental methods for multiphase flows.

The experimental part will provide knowledge on the selection, installation and use of modern gas-liquid measurement techniques and instruments, such as wire-mesh sensors, needle probes, process microscopy and gamma-ray computed tomography along with the application of data analysis tools. The numerical part will focus on finite-volume methods for Euler-Euler and Euler-Lagrange multiphase flow predictions, and on the associated mathematical models.

The Short Course will address the interests of engineers, chemists, physicists and technicians active in research and design, who want to be informed on modern design methods and tools for multiphase flows.

The first day of the Short Course will focus on general topics; on the second day one group will specialise on experimental techniques including laboratory practices, while the other group will dive deeper into multi-scale modelling approaches.
