Invitation: National Energy Technology Laboratory’s (NETL) 2021 Virtual Workshop on Multiphase Flow Science

Dear Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to participate in the U.S. Department of Energy, National Energy Technology Laboratory’s (NETL) 2021 Virtual Workshop on Multiphase Flow Science.  Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, this year’s workshop will take place as an on-line, virtual meeting from Tuesday, August 3 through Thursday, August 5, 2021.

This workshop brings together international leaders from industry, academia, and government laboratories working in multiphase flow sciences to discuss current research projects and future research and development needs.  Topics can include gas-solid, liquid-solid, gas-liquid, and gas-solid-liquid multiphase flows.  Industrial representatives are encouraged to attend and share their experiences and specific applications to help researchers better understand industry needs and priorities.  Please reference for proceedings from past workshops.

The goal for the Workshop continues to be advancing the use of physics-based multiphase simulations and experiments to help overcome the technical barriers associated with the development of highly efficient, environmentally acceptable energy, environmental and industrial technologies and processes. 

The Workshop 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 gasification, combustion, fossil fuel extraction and utilization, chemical processes, etc.
  • Novel measurement techniques in multiphase flows
  • Application of uncertainty quantification techniques in multiphase flow simulation
  • Optimization and reduced order modeling of multiphase systems

Call for Presentations:

You are invited to submit a brief abstract for a 15-minute presentation.  Please submit your abstract by June 15, 2021 to

Presentation Procedure and Schedule:

Presenters will show their PowerPoint or PDF presentation live on the Workshop Webex connection.  Questions will come through the chat and Q&A features of the Webex connection.

The workshop will be Open to the Public and Foreign Nationals may attend the meeting.  Only publicly available information will be presented.
