International Workshop on Recent Advances in MultiphasE flow-induced vibratioN (RAMEN)

16-17 December 2020

We aim to gain a better understanding of the state-of-the-art knowledge, methodologies and technologies related to the modelling, simulation and experiment of MFIV in subsea infrastructures transporting hydrocarbon liquid-gas flows, to promote international collaboration between academia and industry through presentations and discussions, and to identify scientific challenges of industry importance to be addressed in the near future.
