ERCOFTAC course “BPG for CFD for Dispersed Multi-Phase Flows with Problem Shooting Session”

"While 20 years ago the accuracy of dispersed multiphase flows was mainly governed by the limited computational capacity,
nowadays the physical modeling poses the largest challenge" – Olivier Simonin, Lecturer

The course run in Rome was a huge success. 5 lecturers and 30 participants attended the Sapienza University di Roma to learn, discuss and share their knowledge in the subject.

This is what participants told us after the course:

Participants and Lectures at the Sapienza University Roma.

Dylan Letessier: I attended the "CFD for Dispersed Multi-Phase Flows 2021" course in Rome. It was really enriching allowing me to get a more global vision on how to treat flows in a simulation. Moreover, we had a lot of discussions and the setting was perfect."

Margherita Dotti: “An useful and enjoyable CFD course – from both an academic and a personal point of view. The professors presented, in an enthusiastic way, theory and relevant applications for numerical simulations in multi-phase flows. I also had the chance to meet other young European researchers, specialized in my same field,
with whom I had meaningful and scientifically relevant conversations."

Nils Barfknecht:"The course gave me the unique opportunity to gain valuable insights into the modelling of dispersed multi-phase flow. I can now judge much better which modelling approach I have to use to solve my research problems. The extensive discussions about my research with lecturers and my fellow participants were a highlight for me. This course is highly recommended for everyone new in the field of dispersed multi-phase flow."

ERCOFTAC would like to thank Prof. Dr Martin Sommerfeld and colleagues for a successful edition of this year’s course.
