Numerical modelling and high performance computing of particle-laden flows
Math Annex 1100
Fri 21 Oct 2016, 3:00pm-4:00pm


Particle-laden flows are ubiquitous in environmental, geophysical and engineering processes. The intricate dynamics of these two-phase flows is governed by momentum transfer between the continuous fluid phase and the dispersed particulate phase. In this talk, I will suggest a multi-scale modelling framework for particle-laden 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 Navier-Stokes solvers on cartesian grids, Adaptive Mesh Refinement or highly scalable numerical tools.
