Series Title: 7th International Conference on Multiphase Flow - ICMF 2010 Proceedings
Physical Description: Conference Papers
Creator: Sommerfeld, M.
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: Professor Martin Sommerfeld studied aeronautical engineering at the Technical University of Aachen and received his Diploma (Dipl.-Ing) degree in 1981. He accomplished his Ph.D. (Dr.-Ing.) at the Shock Wave Laboratory of the Technical University of Aachen on shock wave propagation through gas-particle mixtures in 1984. From 1984 to 1985 he spent one year at the Kyoto University in Japan on a research fellowship from the Japan Society for Promotion of Science and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. After returning from Japan he moved to the University of Erlangen. At the Institute of Fluid Mechanics (Prof. Durst) he was heading a research group on Two-Phase Flow from 1986 to 1994. During this period he completed a Habilitation on “Modelling and Calculation of Turbulent Two-Phase Flows using the Euler/Lagrange Approach”. In October 1994 he was appointed as a full Professor of Mechanical Process Engineering at the Martin-Luther-University of Halle-Wittenberg. In 1997 he received the DECHEMA Award 1996 for his contributions to multiphase flow measurements, modelling and numerical prediction. Martin Sommerfeld organised a continuing series of workshops on two-phase flow predictions, ASME symposia, the Int. Conf. on Multiphase Flow (ICMF 2007) and several other international conferences. He has published about 140 reviewed journal publications and more than 150 conference papers. His present research activities are mainly concentrated on the following topics: fundamentals of dispersed multi-phase flows with the aim of developing physical models for describing relevant transport phenomena, detailed experimental analysis of multi-phase flows using modern optical instrumentation, direct numerical simulation for resolved particles and agglomerates, development of models and numerical methods for the prediction of multi-phase flows mainly on the basis of the Euler/Lagrange approach, application of numerical methods for industrial processes involving multi-phase flows.
