CFD is widely applied in engineering design, safety analysis and environmental assessments, in which it is being used to simulate increasingly complex flows. The focus of this seminar is an important class of complex flows which pose considerable technical challenges: multi-phase and free-surface flows. The aim of this seminar is to bring together current and potential users of CFD to present and discuss methodologies to obtain reliable and consistent results for this class of complex flows. The seminar will also illustrate best practice in CFD, as well as highlighting findings which have wider relevance and impact. This will be the fourth joint seminar on this theme co-organised by NAFEMS and ERCOFTAC. It follows successful seminars in March 2004, September 2005 and March 2007.
ERCOFTAC scholarships are available to support the attendance of young researchers.
