2015 NETL Workshop on Multiphase Flow Science – Invitation

Dear Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to participate in the U.S. Department of Energy, National Energy Technology Laboratory’s (NETL) 2015 Workshop on Multiphase Flow Science. This year’s workshop will take place on Wednesday, August 12 through Thursday, August 13, 2015, at Lakeview Golf Resort & Spa, 150 Lakeview
Drive, Morgantown WV 26508.

This event will bring together international leaders from industry, academia, and government laboratories in the area of multiphase flow science to discuss current research projects and discuss future research and development needs in the area of multiphase flow science. Industrial presenters are encouraged to attend and to share their experiences and specific applications in this area. The scope this year includes liquid-solid, gas-liquid, and gas-solid-liquid flow.

Call for Presentations:
The goal of the Workshop continues to be advancing the use of physics-based multiphase simulations to help overcome the technical barriers associated with the development of highly efficient, environmentally acceptable energy, environmental
and industrial technologies and processes. The conference will cover topics in:

  • Fundamental research in multiphase flows
  • Advancements in CFD model development for multiphase flows
  • Application of multiphase CFD to industrial systems such as fossil fuel extraction and utilization, chemical processes, etc.
  • Novel measurement techniques in multiphase flows
  • Verification, validation, and uncertainty quantification in multiphase flow simulation

You are invited to submit an abstract (around 300 words) for a 15 minute presentation, by June 30, 2015 to Final agenda and notification to presenters will follow by July 6, 2015. Due to limited time slots available for presentation, the organizing committee will ask the author(s) to either make a presentation or provide a poster presentation.

We are also pleased to announce that this year's conference will be held in conjunction with the planned NETL Advanced Gasification Workshop, tentatively scheduled for Monday, August 10 and Tuesday, August 11, 2015 at Lakeview Golf Resort & Spa, 150 Lakeview Drive, Morgantown, WV, 26508. Therefore, presentations dealing with multiphase flow aspects of gasification and related processes are greatly encouraged for the Multiphase Science Workshop

These Workshops will be Open to the Public. Foreign Nationals may attend the meetings. Only publically available information will be presented.
