MUFFINS 7th Steering Meeting


Posted By on Oct 3, 2020

The 7th MUFFINS Steering Group meeting has taken place online in two days on the 30th September and 1st October 2020. All the three academic teams including academic investigators and researchers from Newcastle, Imperial and Glasgow presented the progress of their individual work packages to industry partners. Several research aspects have been advanced including the experiment, modelling and CFD simulation. Both internal multiphase slug flows and external flow vortex-induced vibrations have been discussed. The teams are planning an online virtual international workshop on ‘Recent Advances in Multiphase Flow-Induced Vibration‘ to take place in December 2020.

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.
