An Isaac Newton Institute Workshop

Computational Aspects of Granular and Particle Laden Flows

Monday, 17th November 2003

Organisers: J.N.M.T. Gray (University of Manchester), K. Hutter (Darmstadt University of Technology) J.T. Jenkins (Cornell University) and T. Mullin (University of Manchester)

Supported by Hewlett-Packard in association with the Newton Institute programme entitled Granular and Particle-Laden Flows (GPF)

Theme of Conference:

The meeting addresses significant issues related to various aspects of GPF, from Discrete Element Methods, over well balanced finite volume methods for granular flow models, and computational peculiarities, to multiple particle statistics.
