CSIRO was host to the ninth international conference on the application of CFD in the mineral processing, metal production, power generation, chemicals, food, oil and gas and other industries. CFD is proving an invaluable tool in the design and optimisation of equipment and processes in these industries.
The conference continued a successful series of meetings aimed at promoting and advancing the application of CFD in the minerals 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
aluminium reduction cells, combustion, hydrocyclones, thickeners, porous flows, casting, fluidised beds, smelting, furnaces, slurries, steel making, stirred tanks, granular flow and many others.
