This book presents the latest research in one of the most challenging, yet most universally applicable areas of technology. Multiphase flows are found in all areas of technology, at all length scales and flow regimes, involving compressible or incompressible linear or nonlinear fluids. The range of related problems of interest is vast, including astrophysics, biology, geophysics, atmospheric process, and many areas of engineering.
The solution of the equations that describe such complex problems often requires a combination of advanced computational and experimental methods. For example, any models developed must be validated through the application of expensive and difficult experimental techniques. Numerous problems in the area thus remain as yet unsolved, including modelling nonlinear fluids, modelling and tracking interfaces, dealing with multiple length scales, characterising phase structures, and treating drop break-up and coalescence.
The papers contained in the book were presented at the eighth in a well established series of biennial conferences that began in 2001. They represent close interaction between numerical modellers and other researchers working to gradually resolve the many outstanding issues in understanding of multiphase flow.
The papers in the book cover such topics as: Computational Modelling; Experimental Measurements; Multiphase Flow Simulation; Bubble and Drop Dynamics; Cavitation; Interface Behaviour; Flow in Porous Media.
