School hosts Sixth Spray SIG Workshop

Sprays in engineering applications: modelling and experimental studies

The sixth meeting of the UK Fluids Network SIG on Sprays was recently held at the University of Edinburgh's Pollock Halls on 16th August 2019.

Beginning with an introduction by Prof Mark Linne, a day of presentation and discussion was followed by dinner at the Salisbury Arms.

The full workshop agenda is shown below with copies of some the presentations given - including one from Dr Brian Peterson of the School of Engineering's Institute for Multiscale Thermofluids.
