The series of Workshops started in 1984 at the
Prof.Dr.-Ing. M. Sommerfeld
Zentrum für Ingenieurwissenschaften
D-06099 Halle (Saale), Germany
The Workshop will be held at the Centre of Engineering Sciences of the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg.
The main objective of the Workshop is to bring together researchers working in the field of dispersed multiphase flow on a theoretical, numerical or experimental basis. Oral presentations and posters in the following areas are most welcome for the Workshop:
1. Modelling of dispersed turbulent two-phase flows (turbulence models, heat and mass transfer, particle-wall interaction, particle-particle interaction, bubble and droplet interactions, agglomeration, ...)
2. Recent developments on Euler/Euler and Euler/Lagrange approaches
3. Direct numerical simulations of fully resolved particles (solid particles, droplets and bubbles)
4. Direct and large eddy simulations of particulate flows (point-mass approach)
5. Application of numerical methods for two-phase flows in process engineering
6. Experimental studies on dispersed two-phase flows including new measurement techniques.
Test Case Calculations
An additional objective of the Workshop will be related to the validation of numerical predictions obtained by different model approaches and numerical codes. These validations will be based on pre-defined test cases for which experimental or numerical results (e.g. direct or large eddy simulations) are available. Several test cases have been selected and will be made available to the interested groups prior to the Workshop on the homepage of the organiser. The test case descriptions will provide all necessary boundary and inlet conditions. The following test cases are tentatively planned:
· Sedimentation of a solid particle towards a plane wall; test case for fully resolved DNS
· Small-scale liquid-solid fluidised bed with about 2000 particles and a mean volume fraction of 30% (data from
· DNS data on droplet coalescence in homogeneous isotropic turbulence (data from IMF Toulouse)
· Pneumatic conveying of fine particles through a horizontal glass pipe with a length of 5.5 m and a diameter of 80 mm (MVT, MLU-Halle)
The number of groups participating in one test case calculation is limited to about five. Any questions regarding the test cases may be sent to Prof. Dr.-Ing. M. Sommerfeld.
The registration fee for the Workshop is 300 Euro, which includes the proceedings, refreshments during the breaks, lunches, an excursion and a common dinner in a historic place of the region. The registration fee should be paid by bank transfer only. An invoice or receipt will be issued after the final registration.
The proceedings will include papers of all accepted presentations and posters and will be provided on a CD at the Workshop registration.
