ISUD-9 Keynote lectures

The symposium ISUD-9 covered a wide range of ultrasonic Doppler applications in liquid metal, waste water, sludge, river, food, etc. The main topics of this edition has been introduced by keynote lectures. These three invited talks was given by researchers whose contributions to UVP application are widely acknowledged.

Erich Windhab

Prof. Dr. Erich J. Windhab, Institute of Food Science at the ETH Zurich (Switzerland)

Potential of Ultrasound-Doppler in process flow measurements along the food value chain

David Hurther

Dr. David Hurther, Laboratoire des Ecoulements Géophysiques et Industriels at the CNRS Grenoble (France)

Underwater acoustic scattering and its application to sediment transport physics in coastal and river flows

Yuji Tasaka

Dr. Yuji Tasaka, Laboratory for Flow Control at the Hokkaido University (Japan)

Extraction of fluid and flow information from spatio-temporal UVP data obtained in rotating configurations


Conference topics

  • Fundamental Flows : Fundamental flow configurations such as jet, wake, mixing layer, boundary layer, natural convection, liquid metal flow, rotating flow etc.
  • Applied Flows : Flow configurations appearing in industrial devices and facilities such as pipe flow, rotating disc, flows in containers, transient flow, rheological flow, multiphase flow etc.
  • Environmental Flows : Flows in nature and man-made structures such as rivers, lakes, channels, around a bridge, harbor, bay etc.
  • Flow Metering : Applications to metering such as flow meter, calibration facilities and metering standards etc.
  • Flow Mapping
  • Signal Processing and Methodology : New algorithms, new concepts, data display, data analysis etc.
  • Acoustic Characterization : Acoustic properties such as sound speed, attenuation characteristics, sound optics in multiphase flow, acoustic turbidity and particle size distribution etc.
  • Ultrasound Spectroscopy and Microscopy
