Particles, bubbles and droplets are often small enough that the flow at the scale of the inclusion is predominantly viscous, even when the large-scale dynamics is inertial. This simplifies the governing equations and makes the problem somewhat more tractable. However, in many practical situations, the number of suspended objects is so large, and/or their concentration so high, that they can hardly be treated as isolated elements.

The choice between discrete and continuous representation of the dispersed phase is highly influenced by the tools available to the researcher, from the theoretical, experimental, and numerical standpoint. Those tools rapidly evolve in time, as the great relevance of this class of flows has motivated major recent advances.

This Colloquium will bring together international experts in multiphase dispersed flows, and focus on the following topical questions:

  • Under which conditions can the discrete object dynamics be up-scaled to represent collective behaviour?
  • What are the most suitable strategies for the continuous description of the dispersed phase in the various regimes?
  • Which numerical and experimental methodologies are emerging as the most appropriate for dispersed flows?

We hope we will have a great time in Toledo, enjoying both the science and the cultural activities this great city offers.

Looking forward to seeing you in Toledo,

Venue, Hotel & City

La Hacienda del Cardenal (Cardinal's Estate) is a historic building in Toledo that was the summer residence of Cardinal Lorenzana in the 18th century. It is located on the same wall of the city, near the pedestrian lift that takes you to the historic center.

The hotel has 27 rooms with views of the garden or the city wall, and offers services such as free wifi, parking, pool, spa and lounges for events and weddings. The restaurant offers the best of Toledo cuisine, with specialties such as suckling pig and lamb roasted in a wood oven, and a wide wine list. It also has a Mudejar-style tavern where you can enjoy tapas and live musical performances.

If you want to know more about this hotel / restaurant, you can visit their website or call the number +34 925 22 08 62.

Besides Hacienda del Cardenal, Toledo offers many hotels conveniently located near the conference venue and the historical city center. You can find a list of some of these accomodations here.

Finally, we encourage you to enjoy the cultural, gastronomical and leissure activities that this millenary city offers. You can find more information at the official website of the City of Toledo.
