Multiphase Flow

10:00 AM-12:00 PM
Room: Ballroom A

Among the many large-scale applications of multiphase flow, this session will focus on combustion, inertial confinement fusion and supernovae. The two main issues to be discussed are the detailed microphysics of the evolution of an unstable interface into a chaotic mixing layer and the statistical and averaged equations suitable for description of such phenomena at a macrophysical length scale. Thus the session will include fluid instabilities, direct numerical simulation (DNS) of fluid mixing, statistical analysis of random solutions, and the development of subgrid models for large scale simulations.
