Multiphase Flows - Simulation, Experiment and Application


The 17th Multiphase Flow Workshop - Conference and Short Course


Dresden, November 11-15, 2019

The Best Poster Awards of the 17th Multiphase Flow Conference & Short Course:

  1. the 1st rank is granted to Kurian J. Vachaparambil,
  2. the 2nd rank is granted to Nithin Mohan Narayan, and Jessica Mariño.



Multiphase flows are of great interest to a large variety of industries. The power generation, nuclear reactor technology, food production, chemical process, aerospace and automotive industries are all driving forces in this complex field.

The goal of the workshop was to bring together experimental and numerical practitioners, and to foster discussion and exchange of knowledge.

Experts from both areas are called upon to present their research and application results to a worldwide audience. Topics of interest include:

  • Simulation technology for multiphase flows
    • Phase interaction models
    • Turbulence models
    • Solution algorithms
    • Multi-scale modelling techniques
  • Application of simulation methods to multiphase flow problems
  • Experimental investigations of multiphase and magnetohydrodynamic flows
  • Measurement methods for multiphase and magneto-hydrodynamic flows

The workshop is divided into two parts: starting with two days of Short Course, two more days of Conference follow.

Conference

The conference will take place after the Short Course from Wednesday noon until Friday noon.

Multiphase flows occur in a large variety of industrial applications, for instance in the chemical and process industry, in power generation, and in the automotive industry. In order to improve the quality of these products, to accelerate their development, and to increase their safety, it is important to better understand, model, and simulate multiphase flows.

The goals of the conference are to discuss the state of the art in multiphase flow research and applications, and to foster discussion and exchange of knowledge. Experts from the experimental side, from modelling and simulation, as well as experts from the application field are invited to present their research and results to a worldwide audience.

General topics of interest include

  • Simulation technology for multiphase flows
    • Phase interaction models
    • Turbulence models
    • Solution algorithms
    • Multi-scale modelling techniques
  • Application of simulation methods to multiphase flow problems
  • Experimental investigations of multiphase and magnetohydrodynamic flows
  • Measurement methods for multiphase and magnetohydrodynamic flows

Short Course

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

The first one and a half days of the Short Course will focus on general topics; in the morning of the third day one group will specialise on experimental techniques including laboratory practices, while the other group will learn about specific multiphase capabilities of CFX/FLUENT, STAR-CCM+ and OpenFOAM including a demonstration case setup (parallel sessions) for each code.

The numerical part will focus on finite-volume methods for Euler-Euler and Euler-Lagrange multiphase flow predictions, and on associated mathematical models. The experimental part will provide knowledge of the selection, installation and usage 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 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.
