Fluids that exhibit physical behaviours which are not Newtonian are
extremely common in nature and in industrial contexts. Equally prevalent
are interfacial flows, multi-phase mixtures and suspensions. Examples
include: mud, lava, polymer melts, cosmetic creams, ketchup, mayonnaise,
chocolate, heavy oils, pulp suspensions, cement slurries, granular
flows, pastes, etc.. Due to the complexity of studying such systems,
applied mathematics plays a key role in research and in practical
application of solutions to the many unsolved flow problems. This
workshop brings together a select group of researchers in this area,
with a strong mathematical focus, drawn from many disciplines, to
advance research.
