Complex Fluids and Flows in Industry and Nature

  • Start Date: 07/13/2011
  • End Date: 07/16/2011

University of British Columbia



Models of fluid flows in natural and industrial settings are often
significantly complicated by details such as the confining geometry,
varying material behaviour such as a non-Newtonian rheology, the
presence of interfaces and multiple phases. Due to the additional
complexity in studying such fluids, applied mathematics and computation
plays a key role in research and in practical application of solutions
to the many unsolved flow problems.


This workshop is primarily intended for mathematically oriented
scientists and engineers working in physically interesting fluid flows,
who wish to share their results and participate later in ICIAM.
