Workshop on Multiphase Physical Flows and Applications

(12 - 16 Mar 2007)

Organizing Committee ·  Confirmed Visitors · Overview · Activities Membership Application

Overview

This workshop will focus on modeling, theory and simulations of compressible multi-phase physical flows with applications to pulse detonation engine, combustion, bubble dynamics, environmental science and engineering and super-cavitation. Here, the fluid-fluid interface and fluid-deformable structure interface are the two major moving interfaces encountered. Their applications in industry, military, energy and environment will be discussed. Some of the topics are:

  • Modeling of pulse detonation engine and combustion
  • Bubble dynamics and super-cavitation modeling
  • Moving interfaces in compressible flows
  • Combustion theory and fluid-elastic interface
  • Mathematical theory of compressible flows
  • Numerical methods for moving interfaces
  • Numerical techniques for treating stiff chemical reaction
  • Simulation of combustion/deflagration/detonation
  • Flows in environmental science and technology
  • Bubble dynamics and simulations
  • Applications of physical flows
     

Besides the invited lectures to be spread over a 3 day period, there will be two tutorials. One tutorial will have its emphasis on physical modeling and the other on the mathematical aspects.
