The European Synchrotron Radiation Facility is organizing an on-site workshop on Fluid dynamics meets synchrotron X-ray high-speed imaging. The primary goal of this workshop is to highlight the capabilities of synchrotron X-ray imaging to investigate fast fluid dynamic problems and to bring together both scientists who have experience in using such techniques as well as those who would be interested in considering using them. The workshop will be a unique platform to foster discussions on which areas and specific problems in fluid dynamics might benefit from fast X-ray imaging. The participants will also learn how to apply for access to such a facility and how to prepare and conduct a successful experimental campaign either using environments available at the beamline as well as bringing their own setups.

The workshop will cover both: technical aspects of experimental methods - encompassing advanced high-speed imaging, X-ray, and other unique probing of multiphase flows; as well as detailed scientific discussions of the rich physics within the fast flows, with particularly focusing on the following topics:

●    Bubbly flows
●    Breakup and coalescence processes
●    Cavitation
●    Drops and bubbles
●    Flow in porous media
●    Interfacial instabilities
●    Heat and mass transfer in multiphase flows
●    Particle-laden flows
●    Phase-change processes
●    Turbulent multiphase flows
●    Sprays
●    Suspensions and non-Newtonian flows
●    Shock waves
