CACR will host the 4th symposium on two-phase modelling for sediment dynamics in geophysical flows (THESIS). The symposium will be held on September 17 – 19, 2019 at Embassy Suites by Hilton near the STAR campus of University of Delaware.

The symposium invites studies of fundamental understanding of sediment transport dynamics and other multiphase phenomena and their geophysical applications through theoretical/numerical modeling and laboratory/field observation.

More information can be found from the THESIS-2019 website:

THESIS symposia (THESIS-2011, 2013, 2016) were successfully held in Chatou, France, and Tokyo, Japan to provide a forum for discussing and exchanging knowledge and experience in the international research community, with the goal of developing two-phase approaches to sediment dynamics in geophysical flows. With the success of the past three symposia in establishing the community on modeling principles, benchmarking and proof-of-concept applications, the theme of the 4th symposium is “to bridge terrestrial, coastal and marine surface dynamics with multiphase flows.”
