VPF8 Viscoplastic Fluids: from Theory to Application 2019

Department A-Z

 

Welcome to VPF8, Cambridge, UK, 16th-20th September 2019

Viscoplastic materials are fluids that exhibit a yield stress: below a certain critical shear stress there is no deformation of the fluid and it behaves like a rigid solid, but when that yield value is exceeded, the material flows like a fluid. Since the early 1980s there has been a growing interest and activity in viscoplastic fluids, motivated partly by mathematical advances, partly by computational challenges, partly by rheological advances and partly by an enormous growth in the range of application areas. VPF8 is the latest in the series of biannual international workshops on this topic. A key objective of the meeting is to provide a forum that allows a meeting of the leading scientists, engineers and mathematicians in the diverse range of fields that contribute to viscoplastic fluids.
