CFD for Dispersed Multi-Phase Flows
Posted Tuesday October 24 at 8:3pm

ERCOFTAC will host CFD for Dispersed Multi-Phase Flows VIII on November 20-21, 2017 at the Univ. of Magdeburg, Magdeburg, Germany.

This course is rather unique as it is one of few in the community that is specifically designed to deliver, a) a best practice guidance and b) the latest trends, in CFD for dispersed multi-phase flows.

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 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.


  • Prof. Martin Sommerfeld, University Halle-Wittenberg, Germany
  • Prof. Berend van Wachem, Imperial College, London, UK
  • Prof. Ruud Henkes, Shell Global & TU Delft, Netherlands

    The course appeals to researchers and engineers involved in projects requiring CFD for (wall-bounded) turbulent dispersed multi-phase flows with bubbles, drops or particles.

    Moreover, delegates are offered the opportunity to present their work via 10 minute presentations , thereafter, the lecturers can offer prospective solution.. Registration is required

    Also, each delegate will receive a free copy of the BPG CFD for Dispersed Multi-Phase Flows book

    Registration: richard.seoud-ieo@ercoftac.org
