Professor Andrea Prosperetti SeminarTITLE: "Flows with Suspended Particles"
ABSTRACT: Particulate flows are very commonly encountered in science and technology, but their theoretical description is far from well developed. After a brief description of the most widespread approaches for the (more-or-less) direct numerical simulation of fluid-particle interactions, the talk will describe the basis of the Physalis approach to the problem. Some considerations on the numerical implementation of the method on GPU-based computers will be offered, followed by a description of some applications to particles in turbulence, spinning particles and flows in porous media.
