The application of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) in multiphase flow systems, especially multiphase fluidized bed reactors, has gained popularity over the years. CFD is now often used in a wide range of industries, such as oil and gas, energy, pharmaceutical, chemical, food processing, automotive, metallurgy, etc., due to its potential to successfully help the companies to make engineering decisions pertaining to the designing, troubleshooting, debottlenecking, retrofitting, and scale-up aspects of commercial-scale systems. Key examples of the use of commercial as well as open source CFD codes include fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) reactors in the oil industry, gas-phase polyolefin reactors, fluidized bed reactors for polysilicon production, coal and biomass gasification reactors, and many more. This workshop is for undergraduate and graduate students, engineers and scientists who want to learn how to use modern computational tools to improve the performance and design of multiphase fluidized bed reactors. The audience is encouraged to participate in this fun-filled and educational workshop that promises to provide a unique platform and opportunity to interact with six multiphase flow CFD practitioners and experts from academia, industry and national laboratory, with a combined experience of over 100 years in this field. The instructors have delivered several successful workshops on multiphase flow CFD in various fora, and the bar is expected to rise even higher at the 8th World Congress on Particle Technology.
