8th International Conference on
in the Oil & Gas, Metallurgical and Process Industries

Trondheim, Norway 21-23 June 2011


Objective and scope

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

  • Explore the breadth and application of CFD modelling in the process industries
  • Identify and report on emerging CFD capabilities and applications
  • Identify limitations in the existing CFD capabilities and validation sources

The conference invites papers on the application of CFD in oil and gas transportation and processing, the minerals processing, metal production, chemicals and other process industries. 

The scope is exemplified by:

Multiphase flows:
