CFD 10th International Conference on COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS in the Oil & Gas, Metallurgical and Process Industries, Trondheim, Norway 17-19 June 2014

Objective and Scope

The objective of the conference is to provide a forum to:

  • Explore the breadth and application of CFD modelling in the oil & gas, metallurgical and process industries
  • Identify and report on emerging CFD methods, capabilities and applications
  • Identify limitations in the existing CFD capabilities and validation sources

The conference invites papers on the applications of CFD in oil and gas, metallurgical, and other process industries.

The scope is exemplified by:

CFD Fundamentals and Methodology
Meshless methods (DEM,SPH, …)
Population balance methods

Fluid structure interaction
Bubble and droplet dynamics
Lagrangian methods
Turbulence modeling
Fluidized/packed beds
Granular flows
Free surface flow

We particularly invite abstracts and papers on the following planned focus areas:

  • Pragmatic industrial modelling
  • Uncertainty quantification (verification, validation, calibration, propagation of input uncertainties, predictive power and confidence, error taxonomies, error estimation and banding, etc)
  • Clean energy (wind energy, CLC, photovoltaic, hydropower, etc.)
  • Oil & Gas pipeflow & processing (pipeflow, separation, refining, etc.)
  • Marine environment (oil spill, gas blow outs, dispersion of substances, etc.)
  • Industrial reactive flows (furnace and plant combustion, refining & reactors with chemical reactions, etc.)
  • CFD in health, safety and environment (dispersion/collection of pollutants, ventilation, explosions, etc.)
