Speech Title: Two kinds of meshless method for the numerical simulation of multiphase flow with application in bio-medical engineering
Meshless methods have great potential for the numerical simulation of multiphase flow due to their Lagrangian nature, among which vortex method and moving particle semi-implicit (MPS) method are promising. In the vortex method, the flow field of the continuous phase is solved by the discretization of vorticity equation, and the bubble/droplet/particle equation is introduced to simulate the motion of discrete phase. In the MPS method, fluids are discretized into different particles, and all the operators in the N-S equations are solved by the interaction of these particles. After improvement of stability, MPS has great advantages in the simulation of multiphase flow with deformable interface, because interface tracking/capturing techniques are not necessary. In this work, these two methods are developed to respectively simulate the cryogen spray cooling and laser-induced thrombus formation, thereby improve the therapy effect of laser treatment of vascular dermatosis.
Dr. Chen Bin is now a full professor and vice director in the State Key Laboratory of Multiphase Flow in Power Engineering, Xi’an Jiaotong University. He received his Ph.D in 2002 from Xi’an Jiaotong University, China. Afterwards, he worked at the National Maritime Research Institute of Japan as the Postdoctoral Research Fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science from 2002 to 2004. Prof. Chen was visiting scholar at the Osaka University in 2007 and the University of Maryland in 2012.
For more than a decade, Prof. Chen has devoted his efforts to the research of computational multiphase flow, in particular with the development of techniques for the interface capturing method in complicated domain. He is currently developing the Bubble Packing Method to generate unstructured grid, PLIC-VOF method on the unstructured grid, Moving Particle Semi-implicit method, vortex method, etc. He also conducts investigation of multiphase flow and heat transfer related to bio-medical engineering, such as Cryogen Spray Cooling in the Laser Treatment of skin disease.
Dr. Chen has published over 90 peer-reviewed international journal papers and more than 20 keynote speeches. He has been served as the director of subsidiary panels of Multi-phase Flows, professional committee of Fluid Mechanics, the Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (CSTAM), and member of International Information Center for Multiphase Flow.
