The success of the series of International Conferences on Multiphase Flow, (Orlando, Florida 2001; Santa Fe, New Mexico 2003; Portland, Maine 2005; Bologna, Italy 2007; New Forest, UK 2009) has led to reconvening the meeting in 2011.
Multiphase flow remains one of the most challenging areas of computational mechanics and experimental methods with numerous problems remaining unsolved to date. Multiphase flows are found in all areas of technology, atall length scales and flow regimes. The fluids involved can be compressible or incompressible, linear or nonlinear. Because of the complexity of the problems, it is often essential to utilize advanced computational and experimental methods to solve the equations that describe them. Challenges in these simulations include modelling and tracking interfaces, dealing with multiple length scales, modelling nonlinear fluids, treating drop breakup and coalescence, characterizing phase structures, and many others. Experimental techniques, although expensive and difficult to perform, are essential to validate models.
This conference aims to bring together modellers, computational scientists and experimentalists to share experiences, successes, new methodologies and in general to promote the advancement of this important area of fluid mechanics.
