Zurich 2017 Short Courses on Multiphase Flow (and Nuclear Systems)

Released on Wednesday 24 August 2016

Zurich 2017 Short Courses on Multiphase Flow (and Nuclear Systems)







15-19 February 2016, Zurich, Switzerland

33rd Short Courses Zürich

Modelling and Computation of Multiphase Flows

Multiphase flows and heat transfer with phase change are of interest to researchers, scientists and engineers working in a multitude of industries. Courses similar to this one have been offered at ETH-Zurich continuously since 1984. Over the years, the courses have continuously evolved, reflecting on-going progress and developments.

The courses are organized in a modular form as an intensive introduction for persons having basic knowledge of fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and numerical techniques (introductory tutorial texts are e-mailed to the participants before the course), but also serve as advanced courses for specialists wishing to obtain the latest information.

Part I: Bases 

covers the common background material and emphasises the latest empirical and mechanistic modelling, computational and instrumentation aspects of multiphase flows. A tutorial text is e-mailed to the participants before the course to introduce the very basic concepts and fill any basic gaps in their background, so that they can participate in the best possible way.

Part IIA: New Reactor Systems and Methods

covers multiphase flow topics of particular interest to the nuclear industry. Some of the most recently proposed advanced reactor designs and the main multiphase phenomena of importance to the nuclear industry are treated. The state-of-the-art and beyond in modelling and simulation methods (including CFD and CMFD applications) for core design and accident analysis is introduced. An article introducing Light Water Reactors will be e-mailed to the participants in Part IIA as tutorial material before the course.

Part IIB: Computational Multi-Fluid Dynamics (CMFD)

Reflects the growing interest in the application of CFD techniques tomulti-phase flows and covers the most common new computational techniques. The introductory chapters from a book authored by Tryggvason, Scardovelli and Zaleski will be emailed to the participants in Part IIB to prepare them for the lectures.

Part III: CMFD with Commercial Codes

Is attached to both Parts IIA and IIB. The participants will hear commercial code developers discuss their products for both nuclear and other applications.
