Fluid mechanics of cleaning and decontamination


Cleaning and decontamination operations constitute complex multiphase flow problems. Applications range from domestic and industrial cleaning to removal of hazardous chemical, biological, radioactive or nuclear materials. This SIG will forge a cross-disciplinary community spanning theoretical and experimental researchers, practitioners and government agencies to develop comprehensive approaches to optimizing these processes.
