Abstract
Particleladen flows are ubiquitous in environmental, geophysical and engineering processes. The intricate dynamics of these twophase flows is governed by momentum transfer between the continuous fluid phase and the dispersed particulate phase. In this talk, I will suggest a multiscale modelling framework for particleladen flows and address mathematical and computational issues related to the numerical simulation of this type of flow. Based on various simulation results, I will present what can already be achieved with existing numerical models as well as the next stages in the development of faster and more accurate solution methods as e.g. fast NavierStokes solvers on cartesian grids, Adaptive Mesh Refinement or highly scalable numerical tools.
