Save the Date: NETL 2019 Workshop on Multiphase Flow Science

Dear Colleagues,

Please “SAVE THE DATE” for the U.S. Department of Energy, National Energy Technology Laboratory’s (NETL) 2019 Workshop on Multiphase Flow Science. This year’s workshop will take place on Tuesday, August 6 through Thursday, August 8, 2019, in Morgantown WV at the Morgantown Marriott at Waterfront Place.

This event brings together international leaders from industry, academia and government laboratories working in multiphase flow sciences to discuss current research projects and discuss future research and development needs in Multiphase Flow Science including gas-solid, liquid-solid, gas-liquid, and gas-solid-liquid multiphase flow. Industrial presenters are encouraged to attend and to share their experiences and specific applications in this area.

Tuesday August 6 and Wednesday August 7, 2019 will be dedicated to technical presentations. On Thursday August 8, 2019, NETL researchers will provide demonstration and training sessions on the latest release of NETL’s MFiX Software Suite and associated software toolsets.

Call for Presentations: You are invited to submit a brief abstract for a 15-minute presentation to be provided during the technical sessions on August 6 and 7, 2019. Abstracts for Posters are welcomed as well. Please submit your abstract by May 15, 2019 to workshop@mfix.netl.doe.gov . The final agenda will follow by June 15, 2019. Due to the limited number of time slots available for presentations, the organizing committee may ask the presentation author(s) to provide a poster instead of a PowerPoint presentation.

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 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

The official invitation including costs, lodging information and a registration website will be forthcoming soon. Please set these dates aside and register promptly when the registration link becomes available. If you have any questions or require more information, feel free to contact us at workshop@mfix.netl.doe.gov
