E-CAM State-of-Art Workshop: Challenges in Multiphase Flows
December 9 - December 12
The general topic of the event is computational methods to study multiphase flows. Such methods are applied in very different disciplines, such as statistical physics, materials science, applied mathematics, and engineering, with applications ranging from geophysical to micro scales. Examples include volcano eruptions, oil recovery, and the dynamics of droplets on structured surfaces (“lotus effect”). The computational approaches to tackle these problems are as disparate as the phenomena themselves and the corresponding scientific communities, which rarely communicate amongst each other. The purpose of this school and workshop is to bring these various practitioners together for a fruitful exchange with the aim of improving the methodological toolbox which is still facing significant problems.
