The scope of this workshop is to bring together the academic and industrial scientific communities in Advanced Multi-physics Simulation Technologies for an interdisciplinary exchange and an introduction to novel and innovative software concepts. The workshop will address the three domains of DEM, CFD and FEA all of them employed in the Extended Discrete Element Method (XDEM) for multi-physics applications. A principal goal is to enable participants of the multi-physics community to analyse interaction phenomena and understand underlying physics. The domains of applications cover a large spectrum such as flow, granular media, mechanical stress/strain.

Hence, topics covered by hands-on-experience during the workshop include:
• Transport and handling of granular material
• Thermal conversion of solid particles such as drying, pyrolysis or combustion in packed/moving bed reactors
• Packed bed reactors
• Meso-scale modelling in material science
• Mechanical impact of granular material on structures and buildings.
In particular, participants are invited to provide a problem description of a relevant application that will be discussed during the workshop. Therefore, participants are advised to send a problem description by end of August.

Who should attend:

  • Manufacturers and equipment suppliers
  • Fuel suppliers and supply chain stakeholders
  • Fuel users from all industries
  • Universities, research institutes and national laboratories

Registration open untill August:

The registration fee of 190 € covers both days of the workshop including lunches and refreshments as well as a social event on the evening of the 1st day. We invite you to use the Online-registration page to register for the workshop and to find all information about payment.


Accommodation may be booked with http://www.coque.lu close to the venue or any other hotel in Luxembourg. The workshop is jointly organised by University of Luxembourg and inuTech GmbH.
