Physical Description: Conference Papers
Creator: Soldati, A.
Publisher: International Conference on Multiphase Flow (ICMF)
Publication Date: June 4, 2010
General Note: The International Conference on Multiphase Flow (ICMF) first was held in Tsukuba, Japan in 1991 and the second ICMF took place in Kyoto, Japan in 1995. During this conference, it was decided to establish an International Governing Board which oversees the major aspects of the conference and makes decisions about future conference locations. Due to the great importance of the field, it was furthermore decided to hold the conference every three years successively in Asia including Australia, Europe including Africa, Russia and the Near East and America. Hence, ICMF 1998 was held in Lyon, France, ICMF 2001 in New Orleans, USA, ICMF 2004 in Yokohama, Japan, and ICMF 2007 in Leipzig, Germany. ICMF-2010 is devoted to all aspects of Multiphase Flow. Researchers from all over the world gathered in order to introduce their recent advances in the field and thereby promote the exchange of new ideas, results and techniques. The conference is a key event in Multiphase Flow and supports the advancement of science in this very important field. The major research topics relevant for the conference are as follows: Bio-Fluid Dynamics; Boiling; Bubbly Flows; Cavitation; Colloidal and Suspension Dynamics; Collision, Agglomeration and Breakup; Computational Techniques for Multiphase Flows; Droplet Flows; Environmental and Geophysical Flows; Experimental Methods for Multiphase Flows; Fluidized and Circulating Fluidized Beds; Fluid Structure Interactions; Granular Media; Industrial Applications; Instabilities; Interfacial Flows; Micro and Nano-Scale Multiphase Flows; Microgravity in Two-Phase Flow; Multiphase Flows with Heat and Mass Transfer; Non-Newtonian Multiphase Flows; Particle-Laden Flows; Particle, Bubble and Drop Dynamics; Reactive Multiphase Flows
General Note: Alfredo Soldati is Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Udine where he also has an appointment in Mechanical Engineering. He received his Laurea (BS and MS) in Nuclear Engineering at the University of Pisa. In 1993, after his PhD in Chemical Engineering with a research period at the University of California at Santa Barbara, he joined the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Udine where he is the head of the Environmental and Process Fluid Dynamics group. The focus of the research of the group is on multiphase dispersed flows, trying to capture multiscale aspects from the fundamentals to the applications. Numerical Simulations have been recently complemented by an experimental activity. Researches on turbulent dispersed flows of particles, bubbles, droplets and fibers apply to industrial problems and environmental protection with a recent twist on biomedical applications. Dr. Soldati is the Director of the Department of Fluid Mechanics at the International Center for Mechanical Sciences (CISM) in Udine, he is the italian correspondent of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering for Multiphase Flows, he was recently appointed as guest Professor in Mechanical Engineering at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne. Dr. Soldati is the recipient of the 2007 Knapp award from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and acts as Editor of Acta Mechanica since 2005.
