Multiphase Flows - Simulation, Experiment and Application

Home Short Course Conference Information & Organisation Registration

Short Course

Our Short Course, two days from Monday noon until Wednesday noon, is designed to provide knowledge on the application of numerical and experimental methods for multiphase flows.

The first one and a half days of the Short Course will focus on general topics – see Lecture Topics below. In the morning of the third day information on specific multiphase capabilities and new developments for the CFD codes CFX/FLUENT, STAR-CCM+ and OpenFOAM will be given. This includes demonstrations on case setups for STAR-CCM+ and OpenFOAM and a discussion with the experts from ANSYS in parallel sessions for each code.

As registered participant of the Short Course you are offered free access to the ANSYS Learning Hub to learn more about the ANSYS simulation solutions. In addition to the standard offering, you are also invited to a private room with guidance to relevant training content and additional expert content on the multiphase flow topic.

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

Online Event

The lectures will be pre-recorded if possible and will therefore be available to registered participants during the event. If a lecture is not available in advance, it will be recorded and made available for viewing afterwards. If certain contributions are too early or too late for your time zone, you can still watch them on a time-delayed basis. The code demonstrations and meetings with the specialists will of course take place live.

The conferencing tool will provide appropriate meeting rooms for meetings between participants (individually or in groups) among each other and with the lecturers, as well as personal, group and public chats.
