The 2nd International Symposium on Computational Particle Technology

4-8 December 2018
Intercontinental Hotel, Melbourne, Australia
RSVP by Friday 30 NOV 2018

Symposium Introduction 2018

Understanding the fundamentals governing particle and particle-fluid flows is of paramount importance to the design, control and optimisation of particulate and multiphase processes widely used in many industries. In the past, different measurement techniques have been developed, but there have been problems in probing the underlying physics and solving practical problems generally and reliably. Alternatively, a promising technique that can overcome these problems is computer simulation.

An ARC Industry Transformation Research Hub for Computational Particle Technology has been established to address this issue with the state-of-the-art approaches available, involving a multiscale approach to understand phenomena at different length and time scales which, for particles, includes:

  1. at the molecular/sub-particle scale to determine the interaction forces between particles, fluid and wall, and the transport behaviour between particles and/or pores;
  2. at the micro/particle scale to understand particle flow and force structures in relation to different flow conditions;
  3. at the meso/macro scale to formulate governing equations, constitutive relations and boundary conditions for continuum-based process modelling and simulation; and
  4. at the process equipment scale to quantify flow and process performance for control and optimisation.

In the past two decades or so, with the rapid development of computer technology, many advanced computational technologies, either discrete or continuum-based, have been developed and applied to tackle problems of various types. The second international symposium on computational particle technology will follow the spirit of the first one in Suzhou in March 2016. It will be held in Melbourne on 4-8 December 2018. It aims to provide a forum to discuss the frontier and challenging problems in the modelling and simulation of complex particulate and multiphase processes, covering a wide spectrum from fundamental research to industrial application.
