Multiphase flows, which can involve compressible or incompressible linear or nonlinear, fluids, Are found in all areas of technology, at all length scales and flow regimes. In spite of their ubiquitousness, however multiphase flow continues to be one of the most challenging areas of computational mechanics and experimental methods, with numerous problems remaining unsolved to date. Because the multiphase flow problems are so complex, advanced computational and experimental methods are often required to solve the equations that describe them. The many hhallenges include modelling nonlinear fluids, modelling and tracking interfaces, dealing with multiple length scales, characterizing phase structures, and treating drop breakup and coalescence. Models must be validated, which requires the use of expensive and difficult experimental techniquess. This book presents contributions on the latest research in these techniques, presented at the sixth in a biennial series of conferences on the subject that begain in 2001. Featured topics include: Bubble and drop dynamics, Flow in porous media, Turbulent flow, Multiphase flow simulation, Image processing, Heat transfer, Interaction of gases, liquids and solids, Interface behaviour, Small scale phenomena, Atomization processes, and Liquid film behaviour.
