THESIS-2019 Symposium

Two-pHase modEling for Sediment dynamIcS

The 4th symposium on two-phase modeling for sediment dynamics in geophysical flows
September 17-19, 2019 | Newark, Delaware, USA

Event Overview

We invite studies of fundamental understanding of sediment transport dynamics and other multiphase phenomena and their geophysical applications through theoretical/numerical modeling and laboratory/field observation. THESIS symposia (THESIS-2011, 2013, 2016) were successfully held in Chatou, France, and Tokyo, Japan to provide a forum for discussing and exchanging knowledge and experience in the international research community, with the goal of developing two-phase approaches to sediment dynamics in geophysical flows. With the success of the past 3 symposia in establishing the community on modeling principles, benchmarking and proof-of-concept applications, the theme of the 4th symposium is “to bridge terrestrial, coastal and marine surface dynamics with multiphase flows.”

Prof. S. Balachandar, University of Florida

Young Investigator Spotlight

Dr. Marco Mazzuoli, University of Genova

Clinical Workshop

SedFoam is an open-source Eulerian two-phase model for sediment transport applications created using CFD toolbox OpenFOAM. A half-day workshop will be provided as part of the symposium by Dr. Julien Chauchat and other developers. The workshop will offer hand-on experience for researchers interested in using two-phase model to study sediment transport.

Abstract Submission

Each abstract is limited to 1 page, including figures and should be submitted before February 15, 2019 through the symposium website. They should provide detailed information on the objectives of the study, the methodology, the main results/finding and major conclusions. Each abstract should also indicate the names and affiliations of the authors, as well as email address of the corresponding author.

All accepted extended abstracts (4-page papers) will be published in the symposium proceedings (USB memory drive).
