ERCOFTAC Best Practice Guidelines Course CFD for Dispersed Multi-Phase Flows 2022 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


This is what participants told us after the course:

Participants and Lectures at the SkyLab Centrale Lyon.

"Attending this course was a very positive and strongly recommended experience. The course is taught by experts in the field, providing a very complete and valuable insight in what concerns the topic of dispersed multi-phase flows. The planning of the lectures, moreover, makes the course quite affordable to follow, since the theoretical background needed is deeply covered, together with a reasonable amount of practical applications" - Juan Manuel Catalán

"The course is very well suited and most of the things that I learned could be easily tranposed to the problems that I will be focussing in the course of my research !!"

"Explainations were great / Experience of the speakers was reflected in the content of the presentations !!"

"The only missing part for my field was heat transfer, but in general I am satisfied with the course content !!"

"Thank you to the speakers who were always available for answering the questions !!!"

"The course gave a good overview of the different available methods"


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