    Particle-motion attractors in three-dimensional steady incompressible flows by flow topology and particle-boundary interaction

    Presentation by Prof. Hendrik Kuhlmann (TU Wien), June 30, 2016

    The motion far from boundaries of a spherical particle suspended in a fluid can be approximated by the Maxey-Riley equation or even by the advection equation if the Stokes and particle Reynolds numbers are sufficiently small. Near boundaries, however, this approximation breaks down. As a result of its finite size the particle experiences a repulsive force from the boundary.

    New Collaborative Resarch Centre on transport and wetting processes

    In many technologies the dynamic wetting or de-wetting of surfaces by liquids plays a prominent role. A new Collaborative Research Center at TU Darmstadt will strongly focus on this research topic. The project is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) with 11 Million Euros for the next four years and will start on July 1, 2016.

    Summer School on Near-Wall Reactive Flows

    June 6-10, 2016, Bensheim, Germany

    The ICISS-Summer School in cooperation with TU Darmstadt and ERCOFTAC is intended to report on the status and perspective of experimental, theoretical, and numerical techniques for understanding, describing, and designing near-wall reactive flows in diverse scientific and engineering fields. Furthermore, it aims at providing an opportunity for researchers and interested workers to present the state of the art, discuss new challenges and developments, and exchange ideas in the areas of near-wall reactive flows.
