Multiphase flow denotes the combined transport of gas, liquid, and particles. The aim of this 3-day course is to give a broad overview of the possibilities and limitations of physical-numerical modelling and prediction of multiphase flows. This includes:

(1) fundamentals of physical models and their numerical representation and solvers,
(2) application of Computational Fluid Dynamics to a wide range of environmental and industrial processes driven by multiphase flow,
(3) assessment of a number of CFD packages widely used to solve industrial problems.

At the end of the course the participants will have a good awareness of the types of computational methods, with their specific accuracy, that can be used for multiphase flows occurring in industry. This will help them to build realistic expectations for their own specific practical problems, which might be even more complex than the examples treated in the course. Participants will also be able to acknowledge gaps in our current knowledge, which may help them to define new future research directions.
