19 – 24 July 2020 — ECCOMAS 2020 — MS249: FLUID MECHANICS OF LIQUID METAL BATTERIES

(from Tom Weier, Dresden, Germany)

—-

The joint 14th World Congress in Computational Mechanics and ECCOMAS Congress is expected to be one of the largest computational mechanics and applied mathematics events ever organized with an expected participation from all parts of the globe, representing multiple sectors, academia, industry and government institutions.

Through the organization of minisymposia, it will both cover the latest developments in all aspects of computational mechanics, computational fluid dynamics and applied mathematics in conjunction with industrial needs as well as emerging ones. This congress shall fully engage computational mechanics in the XXI century.

A mini-symposium on fluid dynamics of liquid metal batteries (LMB) will be organized in the framework of the ECCOMAS 2020 congress to be held on July 19-24, 2020 in Paris. The proposed minisymposium aims to support the trending interest in the topic of LMBs, to offer a platform for discussion, and to facilitate future collaborations. While the focus shall be on fluid dynamics, lectures on other aspects of LMBs and related devices (e.g., aluminum reduction cells) will be equally welcome and considered to be in the scope of the minisymposium. Topics to be addressed include: mixing and mass transfer, natural convection, magnetohydrodynamic instabilities, electro-vortex flows, electrochemistry of LMBs, scale-up, and grid integration as well as stack design and heat transfer.

Abstracts can be submitted to the conference website after September 15, 2019. Please contact the mini-symposium organizers, Tom Weier, Wietze Herreman and Oleg Zikanov if you have any questions.


 

 

Dear colleagues,

 

the deadline for abstract submission to the minisymposium “Fluid Mechanics of Liquid Metal Batteries” (and for the whole 14th WCCM & ECCOMAS Congress 2020) has been extended to January 15, 2020. Please see below for the updated announcement.

 

Looking forward to meeting you in Paris!

 

Best regards,

 

Tom, Oleg & Wietze

The main topics are:

  • Electromagnetic mixing and pumping;
  • Electromagnetic semi-levitation and free surface dynamics;
  • Electrovortical flows;
  • Bubbly flows in magnetic field.

The course has three parts:

  • lectures covering topics from modern experimental techniques to promising MHD applications, as well as introduction to simulation tools and methods;
  • numerical modelling of MHD phenomena using both commercial (ANSYS) and open-source (OpenFOAM, ElmerFEM, getDP, EOF-Library) software;
  • laboratory experiments for demonstration and numerical model validation.

After the introductory lectures participants will be assigned small projects within the abovementioned topics and will present the results at the end of the course.

V. NEW BOOK: Self-Exciting Fluid Dynamos

—————————–

(by Keith Moffat & Emmanuel Dormy)

Exploring the origins and evolution of magnetic fields in planets, stars and galaxies, this book gives a basic introduction to magnetohydrodynamics and surveys the observational data, with particular focus on geomagnetism and solar magnetism. Pioneering laboratory experiments that seek to replicate particular aspects of fluid dynamo action are also described. The authors provide a complete treatment of laminar dynamo theory, and of the mean-field electrodynamics that incorporates the effects of random waves and turbulence. Both dynamo theory and its counterpart, the theory of magnetic relaxation, are covered. Topological constraints associated with conservation of magnetic helicity are thoroughly explored and major challenges are addressed in areas such as fast-dynamo theory, accretion-disc dynamo theory and the theory of magnetostrophic turbulence. The book is aimed at graduate-level students in mathematics, physics, Earth sciences and astrophysics, and will be a valuable resource for researchers at all levels.

Research Fellow in Experimental Fluid Mechanics on Magnetoconvection in the Earth Liquid Core Funded by The Leverhulme Trust

Full-time, Fixed Term until 31st December 2021
Closing Date: 13 March 2020
Under the supervision of Professor Alban Pothérat, (http://users.complexity-coventry.org/~potherat/), Executive Director of the Centre for Fluid and Complex Systems Research, Coventry University, UK.

Applications are invited for the position of Research Associate in Experimental Fluid Mechanics sponsored by the Leverhulme Trust (http://www.leverhulme.ac.uk). The project concerns convection in magnetic fields in the so called “Tangent Cylinder” region of the Earth’s core. Much of the mystery surrounding the Earth’s dynamics (its magnetic field, plate tectonics) lies in the nature of the convective patterns within the Earth’s liquid core, and in particular in the region called the “Tangent Cylinder”. What are the possible convective states under the combined influence of the Earth’s rotation and magnetic field, and how erratic are they? This project is part of a theoretical and experimental research program funded by the Trust that aims at answering these questions. The purpose of the experimental part of the programme is to explore the nonlinear convective states that may exist within a laboratory based ‘Tangent Cylinder’ when suitable perturbations are applied to the flow. These states will then be evaluated to see which are mostly likely to underpin the Earth’s core convection.

The project involves operating a novel experiment previously developed in our group to visualise rotating magnetoconvective patterns. Its principle is to use a weakly conductive, but transparent electrolyte, subjected to the very high magnetic fields available at the Grenoble High Magnetic Field Laboratory (France). Part of the experimental work will consist of upgrading the technique first developed in this experiment that makes it possible to visualise flow patterns in electrically conductive fluids by means of bespoke Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) methods.

The successful candidate should hold a PhD or equivalent in Fluid Mechanics, Geophysics, or Physics with a proven track record of producing scientific output at the highest level, as evidenced by high-quality journal publications. The Research Associate will work within the vibrant environment of the Fluid Dynamics group, part of the Fluid and Complex Systems Research Centre, at Coventry University. The group conducts both fundamental and applied research in the fields of stability, magnetohydrodynamics, turbulence and geophysical fluid dynamics as well as other areas of fluid mechanics. In the REF2014, 84% of the group’s output, as part of the mathematics submission, was deemed ‘internationally excellent’ or ‘world-leading’. The project involves extended stays at the Grenoble High Magnetic Field Laboratory, France where the experiment will be operated.

The post is fixed term until 31st December 2021. To apply please also include your CV with a publication list. For further information please contact Professor Alban Pothérat (Coventry University, alban.potherat@coventry.ac.uk, +44(0)2477 65 88 65).
