IMA Conference on Mathematical Modelling of Fluid Systems

As the most versatile medium for transmitting signals and power, fluid (gas or liquid) have wide usage in industry. Fluid systems are used in machine tool applications, vehicle control systems, where high power to weight ratio, accuracy and quick response are required. Fluid systems for industrial processes often involve networks consisting of tanks, pipes, orifices, valves, pumps and other flow devices. It is important to develop a systematic method to mathematically model different types of fluid systems for safe and optimal operations.

Conference topics include the following and are invited to be presented in oral and poster sessions:

• Analysis and computational methods of fluid systems
• Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) approach to engineering systems
• Fluid power systems
• Multiphase flow
• Modelling and design of fluid system components
• Control design methodologies and techniques for fluid systems and applications
• Novel fluid system configurations
• New approaches to system modelling and system design
• Pressure surge
• Hydraulic systems
• Medical applications

Call for Papers:
Papers will be accepted for the conference based on a 250 word abstract. Abstracts should be submitted by Monday 12 May by e-mail to Please state whether your title is intended for oral or poster presentation. Notification of acceptance of abstracts will be Friday 30 May 2014 and the deadline for final papers will be Thursday 31 July 2014.

There will also be trips to Airbus and CFMS available to a limited number of delegates (which will be issued on a first-come-first-served basis).

CFMS is an independent centre for modelling and simulation based at the Bristol & Bath Science Park. The centre combines leading-edge HPC technology; open access and bookable space; secure infrastructure and expertise to enable the demonstration and development of innovative new technologies and processes.

Speaking at the IMA Conference will be the CFMS Chairman, Eur Ing Nick Buckland OBE, an acknowledged expert in the fields of innovation and technology and Fellow of the IMA. Delegates on the tour will be given the opportunity to attend bite-sized executive briefings on the following subjects:

1. CFD for Medical Applications

2. High Order Accelerated CFD

3. HPC for Schools

4. Big Data (With live demo)

Further details on both trips and how to book places will be made available shortly.
