ERCOFTAC is proud to announce the fourth course on CFD for Dispersed Multi-Phase Flows, as part of its Best Practice Guidance series.
Prof. Martin Sommerfeld, University Halle-Wittenberg, Germany
Prof. René Oliemans, Delft University, The Netherlands
Prof. Berend van Wachem, Imperial College, UK
The simultaneous presence of several different phases in external or internal flows such as gas, liquid and solid is found in daily life, environment and numerous industrial processes. These types of flows are termed multiphase flows, which may exist in different forms depending on the phase distribution. Examples are gas-liquid transportation, crude oil recovery, circulating fluidized beds, sediment transport in rivers, pollutant transport in the atmosphere, cloud formation, fuel injection in engines, bubble column reactors and spray for food processing, to name only a few. As a result of the interaction between the different phases such flows are rather complicated and very difficult to describe theoretically. For the design and optimisation of such multiphase systems a detailed understanding of the interfacial transport phenomena is essential.
This course is rather unique as it is one of few in the community that is specifically designed to deliver, a) a best practice guidance and b) the latest trends, in CFD for dispersed multi-phase flows.
The course appeals to researchers and engineers involved in projects requiring CFD for (wall-bounded) turbulent dispersed multiphase flows with bubbles, drops or particles.
Moreover, delegates are offered the opportunity to present their work via 10 minute presentations , thereafter, the lecturers can offer prospective solution.

AMERICAN FORK, UTAH, March 6, 2014 — csimsoft, a leading developer of advanced meshing tools for the CFD and FEA, announced the March 12 release of Trelis 15.0, a version upgrade of its popular Trelis meshing software. The new version includes significant enhancements to the software’s ability to handle geometry preparation, improved meshing algorithms, and easy-to-use GUI. Additionally, with the release of version 15.0, csimsoft provides a developer’s version for ISVs who want to add the high-end meshing capability of Trelis to their applications. A list of feature updates is available at the csimsoft website.
Trelis 15.0 is designed to meet the needs of csimsoft’s expanding international customer base and solutions partners. "We continue to develop Trelis for our rapidly growing, worldwide user base. Trelis 15.0 gives these users a more powerful, best-in-class meshing tool." said Ray Meyers, csimsoft's Director of Technology.
Trelis is based on the time-proven CUBIT™ code that has been developed for more than two decades by csimsoft in conjunction with Sandia National Laboratories. Trelis provides users with powerful meshing tools that specifically meet their needs, produces top quality meshes and enhances the user experience.
csimsoft is a leading developer of pre- and post-processing solutions for the computational fluid dynamics and finite element analysis communities. Delivering exceptional performance and outstanding value, csimsoft’s award winning products are used every day by engineers in many of the world’s largest organizations. csimsoft, founded in 2004 to commercialize Sandia National Laboratory's CUBIT software , is now the provider of the next generation CUBIT, known as Trelis. csimsoft is headquartered in Utah.
