CSIRO invites you to
participate in a symposium on multi-scale modelling of industrial flows.
The meeting is part of CSIRO's Cutting Edge Science Symposium Series.
Many of the industrial flow systems of importance in resource processing, manufacturing,
biomedical and other applications are intrinsically multi-scale – that is, there are widely
separated characteristic length (and time) scales that are of importance to the behaviour
of the system as a whole. It is usually not possible for one single simulation technique to
capture the phenomena at all scales because of the huge computational resource required,
so smarter techniques are required to account for the different scales, and, importantly,
the interaction between them.
Multi-scale modelling is a promising new group of methodologies and techniques that are
still very much in the developmental stage. Although some progress has been made in computational
materials science, the application of multi-scale modelling to fluids systems is still in its infancy,
and different groups around the world are taking a wide variety of different approaches.
