As in previous editions of the International Workshop on Numerical Methods for Non-Newtonian Flows, held somewhat regularly in North America and Europe since 1979, we wish to bring together leading researchers interested in discussing challenges, recent progress, future directions and emerging applications in computational and mathematical non-Newtonian and multiphase flows of complex fluids.
This framework is expected to promote discussions on diverse numerical methods at various scales for complex fluids, such as polymer solutions and melts, surfactants, suspensions, granular material, multiphase mixtures or fluid/fluids interfaces, among others, as well as on work of experimental nature focusing at exposing and understanding fluid mechanics and phenomena, within the workshop theme. The strong links between computation, analytical and experimental methods are emphasized in moving forward to robustly solve practical problems.
As in previous workshops, these include numerical methods for solutions of differential and integral constitutive models from continuum descriptions of the flowing complex fluids to the phenomenological and statistical mechanical frameworks for describing them, and include also experiments of such fluids in challenging flows.
Please, be reminded that a special issue for full papers presented at this workshop is planned for the Journal of Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics (JNNFM). Those papers will be submitted through the EVISE system and will follow the normal peer review process led by Guest Editors, Profs. Manuel Alves and Alexandre Afonso. Further Information on this will be provided soon.
We look forward to welcome you in June 2019 at Hotel Régua Douro in Peso da Régua, Portugal.
