Mathematical modelling of complex fluid flows has practical application within many industrial sectors including energy, the environment and health. Flow modelling can include oil and gas flows in long-distance pipelines or refinery distillation columns, liquid cooling of micro-electronic devices, carbon capture and cleaning processes, water treatment plants, blood flows in arteries, and enzyme interactions. Multi-phase flow modelling models flows consisting of gases, fluids and solids within a single system eg steam and water, or oil and gas within a pipe, or coal dust in the air.
