Type of Event: Conference, International


The conference invites papers on the application of CFD in the minerals processing, metal production, power generation, chemicals and other process industries.

The scope is to include (but is not necessarily limited to):

  • Burners and furnaces
  • Smelting
  • Granular flows
  • Gas cyclones and hydrocyclones
  • Casting
  • Fluidised beds
  • Slurry flows
  • Silos, bins and hoppers
  • Arc furnaces
  • Spray driers
  • Environmental aspects
  • Gravity thickeners
  • Grinding mills
  • Blast furnaces
  • Hydrometallurgical applications
  • Stirred tanks and reactors
  • Heat exchangers
  • Fuel cells
  • Pumps
  • FCC systems
  • Sprays
  • Ventilation
  • Rotary kilns
  • Heat transfer
  • Crystallisers
  • Interfacial dynamics
  • In-cylinder flows and reciprocating engines
  • Ovens
  • Water treatment
  • Pneumatic and hydraulic conveying
  • Extrusion
  • Biochemical processing
  • Turbulence modelling


To provide a forum to:

      • Explore the breadth and application of CFD modelling in the process industries,
      • Identify and report on emerging CFD capabilities and applications, and
      • Identify limitations in the existing CFD capabilities and validation sources.

Papers providing comparison with experimental data are particularly encouraged.
