FOODSIM 2010, June 24-26, 2010, CIMO Research Centre,Braganca, Portugal, Conference Workshops

Conference Workshops

The conference organization is open to suggestions on possible workshops featuring software packages, new hardware or methods used in food simulation. We would like to facilitate the discussions about our research and our new projects as well as to discuss about a third possible COST action proposal.

Processing of non-Newtonian food fluids

This workshop will include two lectures proffered by Carla S. Fernandes (I3N-IPB) and Manuel A. Alves (CEFT-FEUP). Highlighting the use of finite-volume and finite-element methods, complex fluid flow and heat transfer modelling will be explored by the lecturers.

The following topics will be covered:

  • Newtonian vs. non-Newtonian fluid behaviour
  • Rheology measurements and constitutive modelling
  • Finite-volume methods in computational rheology
  • Finite-element methods in computational rheology
  • Applications
