Introduction

This is the 10th International Conference on Multiphase Flow in the very successful series which started in Orlando, Florida (2001), followed by meetings in Santa Fe, New Mexico (2003), Portland, Maine (2005), Bologna, (2007), the New Forest, home of the Wessex Institute (2009), Kos (2011), A Coruna (2013), Valencia (2015) and
Tallinn (2017).

The overall focus of this conference series is on using synergies between experimental and computational techniques to gain a better understanding of all classes of multiphase and complex flow. The meeting aims to facilitate the exchange of ideas and experiences directly and interactively, thereby promoting the development of knowledge in this increasingly important field.

Fluid dynamics processes in nature are predominantly multi-phased, i.e. involving more than one phase of a component such as liquid, gas or plasma. The range of related problems of interest is vast: astrophysics, biology, geophysics, atmospheric processes, and a large variety of engineering applications.

Multiphase fluid dynamics have generated a great deal of recent interest, leading to many notable advances in experimental, analytical, and numerical studies in this area. While progress is continuing in all three categories, advances in numerical solutions are likely the most conspicuous, owing to the continuing improvements in computer power and the software tools available to researchers. Progress in numerical methods has not only allowed for the solution of many practical problems, but also helped to improve our understanding of the physics involved. Many unresolved issues are inherent in the very definition of multiphase flow, where it is necessary to consider coupled processes on multiple scales, as well as the interplay of a wide variety of relevant physical phenomena.

Close interaction between numerical modellers and other researchers is indispensable to resolve many outstanding issues in multiphase flow. Theory and experiments are essential for validation and verification of numerical methods, with the latter providing new insights into the interpretation of experimental results and suggesting new directions of theoretical research.

This series of conferences on Multiphase Flow, organised by the Wessex Institute since 2001, aims to further such initiatives and to develop knowledge transfer mechanisms, in particular between academics and industry professionals. The papers presented at previous meetings are stored in digital form at www.witpress.com/elibrary where they are permanently available to the international community.

Location Informationlisbon

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is one of the oldest cities in the Europe and predates other European capitals such as London, Paris and Rome. Lisbon has a rich and diverse history and is thought to have been founded by Phoenicians. Lisbon witnessed Muslim domination, a Christian conquest, a golden age of discoveries, destruction by an earthquake in 1755 and followed by an enlightened reconstruction process and ongoing renewal.

Its compact historic centre means that it is easy to explore through the characteristic narrow and winding streets. The city boasts many museums, squares, towers, gardens and cafes as well as the Castle of St George, which overlooks Lisbon in its entirety.

Castelo de São Jorge, dates back to the 11th Century, although it is thought the first fortifications on the hilltop were erected during the 2nd Century. The Castle overlooks Lisbon and the Tagus River is one of the city’s top attractions and visitors able to climb the towers and walk along the walls. There are three guided tours daily in Portuguese, English and Spanish.

The UNESCO-listed Monastery, Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, is another must see in the parish of Belem, Lisbon. Populated by the monks of the Order of St Jerome until the order was dissolved in 1833, the Monastery then served as a school and orphanage until around 1940. The monastery is one of the most prominent examples of the Portuguese Late Gothic Manueline style of architecture in Lisbon.

Lisbon enjoys 290 days of sunshine a year and the temperature rarely drops below 15 degrees centrigrade. As a coastal city, there are also fantastic sandy beaches easily accessible by public transport.

  • Taxi: The price of the taxi is between 8 and 10 Euros (depends on much luggage you have).

By Rail

The closest train station to the hotel is the Oriente station which is a 2 minute walk. However most international trains may arrive at Santa Apolonia station which is in the city centre.

If your train only stops at Santa Apolonia station, you can take a train to Oriente from Apolonia. The journey will take only a couple of minutes and will cost less than 2 Euros.

If you prefer to take a taxi once you have arrivedto Apolonia station, the price of a taxi from the city centre to the hotel will cost around 10-15 Euros.


Moving around Lisbon

Comments from delegates that have attended our conferences

Excellent conference. A group of professionals concerned about the destiny of the architectural heritage. Mariolly Dávila

The overall experience was great. The conference provided a platform for international collaborations and understanding. Well done to Wessex Institute Nor Hussain

I have been having an excellent experience with Wessex Institute Israel Felzenszwalb

First and foremost, I very much like the very professional way of organising so many congresses on such a wide range of topics and levels of complexity. Second, the mix of attendants/experts from all over the world leads to nice discussions and exchanges of ideas. Every time, there are things to learn and take home. Third, I like the very friendly, rather personal, atmosphere. Fourth, the limited number of attendants means that there are no crowds or messy situations. Fifth, everything is perfectly clear, from start to finish, there are no surprises. Sixth, the key organizer is a very amiable and accessible team player. There is no complex organisation with many levels of decision making Jaap Vleugel

Very interesting conference, the papers were well researched. Ihuoma Onungwa
