Review of the 1st Workshop on Advances in CFD and MD modelling of Interface Dynamics in Capillary Two-Phase Flows

It has been over a month since I began studying towards a Ph.D. at the School of Engineering, University of Warwick. However, I did not yet have a possibility to share an experience that occurred to me at the beginning of my Ph.D. During the first week of my Ph.D., as part of the training provided by the department, together with my colleague Mr. Chengxi Zhao, I had an opportunity to attend a workshop on advances in computational modelling of interface dynamics in capillary two-phase flows:

The workshop was held at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland between 03.10.16 and 07.10.16. It was aimed at the Ph.D. students and early career researchers, who are involved in experimental and numerical investigation of two-phase flows. The lectures and practical sessions that were associated with the workshop provided an introduction to several active areas of research in computational modelling of two-phase flows, for example, interface capturing methods and arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian finite element method.

Overall, the workshop was a very pleasant and insightful educational experience.
