Complex Flows: Modeling, Analysis, and Simulation - Part I of III

(For Parts II and III, see MS14 and MS51)

4:00 PM-6:00 PM
Room: Atlanta 5

Complex flow phenomena abound in many areas of the sciences and engineering. Fluids or fluid-like substances interact with each other, with other media, or with electromagnetic fields. Fluid-solid or fluid-fluid interaction occurs, for example, in liquid suspensions of solid particles or droplets and in porous media flows. Fluid- field interaction is of critical importance in electro- and magnetohydrodynamics.

The speakers in this minisymposium will focus on the modeling, analysis, and simulation of such phenomena and on underlying questions of numerical analysis and computational issues.

Organizers: A. J. Meir and Paul G. Schmidt
