Posted By on Jun 29, 2019

The 4th MUFFINS Steering Committee meeting has taken place as an open discussion forum at Imperial College on the 9th April 2019. The academic teams presented their progress including a consideration of benchmarking case studies for multiphase liquid-gas slug flows travelling in a flexible catenary-shaped pipe. Discussion was centred around the experimental and computational models including a reduced-order modelling framework. The next Steering Committee meeting will take place at Imperial in September 2019.
