This year sadly witnessed two pioneering fluid dynamicists passing away, Prof Geoff Hewitt and Prof Jason Reese. Both Geoff and Jason made significant contributions towards mathematical modelling of multiphase flows. And both were immensely supportive of his PhD students, aspiring academics and researchers across the board.
So, in their honour, our Special Interest Group is organising the Hewitt-Reese Spring School for Modelling Multiphase Flows on May 14-15, in Strathclyde (Mathematics), Glasgow.
The Spring School is for PhD students, post-docs, academics, industry personnel and or anyone with interest in fluid dynamics – to come together and look at the wide variety of modelling methods that may help reveal the underlying phenomena.
You may be:
- a modeller trying to understand your modelling methods – we will cover a wide spectrum of multiphase modelling methods at all scales (Macro/ Meso/ Atomistic – and coupling methods in between!),
- an experimentalist wishing to learn modelling methods that could help you understand the underlying phenomena,
- interested in numerical methods, handling/ post-processing big data etc, or
- just curious about flows in your area of work.
- 1.5 day Spring School covering a range of modelling methods for multiphase flows, including theoretical/ analytical, numerical and stability methods
- Meet Jason’s and Geoff’s families. We will begin with tributes and also talks about their technical contributions.
- FREE: 40 places for 1 night B&B and dinner. 5 left. SO HURRY UP! (Note: Early Career Researchers Only i.e. PhD students, Postdocs, New Academics, Travel is not covered).
- Venue: Strathclyde University , Department of Mathematics and Statistics
- Date: 14-15 May, 2019
Venue: Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Strathclyde, Room LT908, Livingstone Tower, 26 Richmond Street, Glasgow G1 1XN
