Opening Workshop: "Micro-Macro Modelling and Simulation of Liquid-Vapour Flows"
Novermber 16-18, 2005
The aim of the
research group "Micro-Macro
Modelling and Simulation of Liquid-Vapour
Flows" is the investigation of liquid-vapour flows, in
particular the development of new more efficient and accurate software
tools and the improvement of existing tools for simulations. Vapour
together with liquid phases occur in many applications like cavitation
problems, two phase flow in micro devices, cooling and boiling
processes and breakup of liquid jets. Since e.g. turbine blades and
ship propellers can be destroyed by cavitation this research is of high
An important and necessary issue in this project is the interdisciplinary cooperation between mathematicians and engineers on the one hand and the cooperation between French and German groups on the other hand. The first issue is of vital importance since mathematicians need information about relevant and realistic models, about valid regimes for different models, the access to experimental data, and characteristic behaviour of solutions. Furthermore, engineers will benefit from modern and efficient techniques for acceleration of numerical algorithms (multigrid, adaptivity in space and time), their mathematical justification, rigorous results for model problems, and the construction of exact solutions for benchmarking.

The (preliminary) program.
DFG-CNRS research unit 563 "Micro-Macro Modelling and Simulation of Liquid-Vapour Flows"
The program of the workshop will include the plenary lectures and 30-minutes contributed lectures. Participants are invited to present their research results in the contributed sessions. They are kindly requested to send a short abstract (approx. 200 words) of their talk. The organizing committee will then decide about acceptance.
The workshop fee is 68 € payable at the registration desk. It includes lunch (3x), dinner (2x), and refreshments.
Kirchzarten is a small Black Forest town in the valley of the river Dreisam. It can be reached in twenty minutes by train from Freiburg. http://www.dreisamtal.de or http://www.freiburg.de)
The workshop will take place in the "Kurhaus":
