The German-Japanese Workshop on Multi-Phase Flow was held on August 25 to 27, 2002 at Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe, Germany. It was the third meeting of aseries of formerly bilateral Symposia on Two-, Three-, or Multi-Phase Flows held in 1994 at Karlsruhe and in 1997 at Tokyo.
The purpose of the workshop was to provide a forum für specialists from Japan, Germany, and also für partners from neighbouring countries in order to consolidate recent advances in various basic and applied areas of multi-phase flow in science and technology. Thus, it brought together scientists and engineers working on experimental, theoretical and numerical investigations of multi-phase flows, and
those working on related engineering applications.
The announcement of the German-Japanese Workshop had been warmly accepted in both countries, as weil as in same other countries. In total 24 papers were submitted which were focussed on
the measurements and predictions of three-dimensional flow phenomena in multi-phase flow.
In detail, the presentations cover of the following topics:
Phase distribution and separation
Flow patterns in macro and micro channels
Interfacial phenomena and instabilities
Instrumentation and measurement techniques
3D-modeling and computational methods
Numerical simulation of flows with interfaces
The proceedings include all these contributions and are arranged accordingly.
Dr. Günther Grötzbach and Prof. Mamoru Ozawa look the responsibility für the technical organization of the meeting and the handling of the papers to produce the proceedings. Prof. G. Schnerr and Prof. M. Shoji helped to select the papers to focus the workshop on the intended subject. I like to thank all of them für their excellent organization to make this workshop a great success.
