► 18th Multiphase Flow Conference & Short Course, Nov 2020, Germany
  16 Jan, 2020 

Germany, November 9-13, 2020

Multiphase Flows - Simulation, Experiment and Application



Multiphase flows are of great interest to a large variety of industries. The power generation, nuclear reactor technology, food production, chemical process, aerospace and automotive industries are all driving forces in this complex field.

The goal of the workshop was to bring together experimental and numerical practitioners, and to foster discussion and exchange of knowledge.

Experts from both areas are called upon to present their research and application results to a worldwide audience. Topics of interest include:

Simulation technology for multiphase flows
Phase interaction models
Turbulence models
Solution algorithms
Multi-scale modelling techniques
Application of simulation methods to multiphase flow problems
Experimental investigations of multiphase and magnetohydrodynamic flows
Measurement methods for multiphase and magneto-hydrodynamic flows

The workshop is divided into two parts: starting with two days of Short Course, two more days of Conference follow.

► CFDML workshop at ISC20
  16 Jan, 2020 

Call for Papers: First International Workshop on the Application of Machine Learning Techniques to Computational Fluid Dynamics Simulations and Analysis (CFDML)

Held in conjunction with the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) High Performance 2020, June 25, 2020, Frankfurt, Germany

The combination of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) with machine learning (ML) is a newly emerging research direction with the potential to enable solving so far unsolved problems in many application domains. Machine learning is already applied to a number of problems in CFD, such as identification and extraction of hidden features in large-scale flow computations, finding undetected correlations between dynamical features of the flow, and generating synthetic CFD datasets through high-fidelity simulations. These approaches are forming a paradigm shift to change the focus of CFD from time-consuming feature detection to in-depth examinations of such features, and enabling deeper insight into the physics involved in complex natural processes.

Apart from pure fluid dynamics, the community is embracing ML in a number of areas, such as constitutive modeling of heterogeneous materials, multiphase flow modeling, dynamics of the atmospheric, ocean, and climate system, and combustion/chemical reactions.

The workshop will stimulate this research by providing a venue to exchange new ideas and discuss challenges and opportunities as well as expose this newly emerging field to a broader research community. We aim to bring together researchers and industrial practitioners working on any aspects of applying ML to the CFD and related domains in order to provide a venue for discussion, knowledge transfer, and collaboration among the research community. We are soliciting papers on all aspects of CFD where ML plays a significant role or enables the solution of complex problems in CFD and related fields. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: physics-based modeling with the main focus on fluid physics, such as reduced modeling for dimensionality reduction and the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) turbulence modeling; shape and topology optimization in solids; prediction of aeroacoustics; uncertainty quantification and reliability analysis; reinforcement learning for the design of active/passive flow control, and any ML approach that enables or enhances any of the above techniques.

The workshop will consist of 20-minute talks and will conclude with a panel session, where experts working in the field will discuss the most pressing challenges and attempt to identify the most promising directions to continue developing in the near future. Accepted papers will be published in a Springer LNCS proceedings volume that will accompany the ISC proceedings volume.

Important Dates

Paper due: March 30, 2020 Acceptance notification: April 27, 2020 Camera ready: June 1, 2020 Workshop day: June 25, 2020

Paper Submission

The members of the program committee will review papers submitted to the workshop. Submissions should follow the paper formatting instructions for LNCS and should be submitted via EasyChair. Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present the work. Accepted papers will be published in a Springer LNCS volume.

► Pointwise Enables Revolutionary Building Construction
  15 Jan, 2020 

FORT WORTH, TX – The case study, “Pointwise Enables Revolutionary Building Construction,” shows how using Pointwise for mesh generation enables Branch Technology to increase reliability while decreasing the time to generate 3D printer instructions from weeks to hours.

Find out more about these latest advances:

Branch Technology recognized a problem with efficiency and cost in building construction. They leveraged inspiration from nature and large scale robotic additive manufacturing to revolutionize building construction and became the first company to 3D print large-scale structures. Using Pointwise for structured mesh generation enables Branch Technology to increase the reliability of their process while simultaneously decreasing the time to generate printer instructions. Learn how Pointwise reduces the time for generating 3D printed instructions from weeks to hours.

Pointwise, Inc. is solving the top problem facing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) today – reliably generating high-fidelity meshes.

► The World Solar Challenge - Aerodynamic simulation of rotating wheels in a solar car
    9 Jan, 2020 

Honda CR-V designed with NUMECA


Every 2 years competitors from around the world set out on a grueling race across the Australian outback: the World Solar Challenge. The competing solar-powered cars are built by some of the brightest young minds on the planet. Student teams from all over the world, push the limits of technological innovation by engineering and building a vehicle with their own hands, powered only by the sun. The competition is designed to promote research on solar-powered cars.

The Belgian team Agoria won last year's race with their car called BluePoint. BluePoint is the result of years of research by different teams of thesis students from KU Leuven.

One of the most important objectives of solar-powered car development is to minimize power consumption by reducing drag. To find the optimum design within the limits of the competition, the Agoria Solar Team ran many simulations using OMNIS™, and were able to make a large variety of design changes thanks to its quick and easy, yet high-quality mesh production.

In THIS BLOG ARTICLE read all about a study they made on the influence of the rotation of the wheels on the drag.
