ERCOFTAC develops and maintains a series of Best Practice Guidelines, serving as the points of reference in specialized engineering disciplines. Current titles include CFD for Single-Phase Flows, CFD for Dispersed Multiphase Flows and CFD of Turbulent Combustion. This Series is accompanied by a corresponding set of high-level courses.
The Best Practice Guidelines were commissioned by ERCOFTAC following an extensive consultation with European industry which revealed an urgent demand for such a document. The first edition was completed in January 2000 and constitutes generic advice on carrying out quality CFD calculations.
The simultaneous presence of several different phases in external or internal flows such as gas, liquid and solid is found in daily life, environment & numerous industrial processes. These are termed multiphase flows, which may exist in different forms depending on the phase distribution.
