|Course on CFD of Multiphase Flows|
|With this course we intend to provide detailed knowledge on the physical foundation of multiphase flow models and the associated numerical solution methods. Due to its relevance for many industrial applications the emphasis during the course will be on dispersed multiphase flows. The course includes hands-on computer sessions in which several in house simulation tools will be used to solve complex multiphase fluid flow problems.|

The discipline of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) involves the analysis of fluid flow and related phenomena such as heat and/or mass transfer, mixing and chemical reaction using numerical solution methods. Due to the rapid advances in CFD and the potential it provides to analyze, on a fundamental basis, systems of considerable interest to the chemical engineer, it can be anticipated that the importance of CFD as a “workhorse” for the chemical engineering community will rapidly increase in the near future.
Goal of the course
With this course we intend to provide detailed knowledge on the physical foundation of multiphase flow models and the associated numerical solution methods. Due to its relevance for many industrial applications the emphasis during the course will be on dispersed multiphase flows. The course includes hands-on computer sessions in which several in house simulation tools will be used to solve complex multiphase fluid flow problems.

Prof.dr.ir. J.A.M. Kuipers (University of Twente, Faculty of Science & Technology, J.A.M.Kuipers@utwente.nl)
Hans Kuipers graduated in 1985 at the department of Chemical Engineering of the former Technical University of Twente. In December of the same year he started with his Ph.D. study at the Reaction Engineering group of University of Twente on detailed micro balance modeling of gas-fluidized beds. In June 1990 he received his Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering and was appointed in the same year as assistant professor in the Reaction Engineering group headed by Prof. W.P.M. van Swaaij. In 1994 he was appointed as associate professor in the same group. Since August 1999 he became fulltime professor in Fundamentals of Chemical Reaction Engineering at the Chemical Engineering Department of the University of Twente. He teaches amongst others introductory and advanced courses on Transport Phenomena and Applied Process Technology. His research interests are in the area of multiphase reactors.
Dr.ir. N.G. Deen (University of Twente, Faculty of Science & Technology, N.G.Deen@utwente.nl)
Niels Deen is an assistant professor of chemical engineering at the University of Twente. He received his PhD in Chemical Engineering at Aalborg University Esbjerg, Denmark in 2001 under supervision of Prof. B.H. Hjertager and his MSc in Chemical Engineering at the University of Twente in 1998 under supervision of Prof. W.P.M. van Swaaij and Prof. J.A.M. Kuipers. His current research focuses on computational and experimental multiphase fluid dynamics in chemical reactors.
