Announcements ERCOFTAC will host a Best Practice seminar on CFD for Dispersed Multiphase Flows on October 20-21 in Lund, Sweden.

This course is designed to capture an overview of CFD for multi-phase flows, fluid mechanic models for multiphase flows, numerical discretization, examples from real world engineering simulations, demonstrations, and a Best Practice Guideline (BPG).

The simultaneous presence of several different phases in external or internal flows such as gas, liquid and solid is found in daily life, environment and numerous industrial processes. These types of flows are termed multiphase flows, which may exist in different forms depending on the phase distribution.

Examples are gas-liquid transportation, crude oil recovery, circulating fluidized beds, sediment transport in rivers, pollutant transport in the atmosphere, cloud formation, fuel injection in engines, bubble column reactors and spray driers for food processing, to name only a few. As a result of the interaction between the different phases such flows are rather complicated and very difficult to describe theoretically. For the design and optimisation of such multiphase systems a detailed understanding of the interfacial transport phenomena is essential.

The course would appeal to researchers and engineers involved in projects requiring CFD of (wall-bounded) turbulent dispersed multiphase flows with bubbles, drops or particles.
