and process industries where technologies often involve challenging
aspects such as multiphase flow, combustion, phase change,
non-Newtonian flow, etc.
The program presented papers on a wide variety of applications
including coal combustion, hydrocyclones, casting, fluidised
beds, smelting, furnaces, slurries, steel making, crystallisation,
stirred tanks, bio-engineering, granular flow and many others.
