5th International Conference on

Vortex Separation

York, UK: 28-30 March 2001

Papers presented at this conference, as outlined in the Contents below, are available in a bound volume of proceedings from Mrs Marian Rolfe at BHR Group. For information on future conferences in this series, please see our Events List or contact Babs Astle at BHR Group.

This Conference takes cyclone technology into a century and indeed a new millenium.
Since the first conference in this series was held in 1980 the technology has become more mature, pasticularly for liquid-liquid cyclones which were only just emerging then. However there are still new developments and applications appearing as readers can gauge from the papers given in this volume,so that this conference is no less exciting than the first and those held since. Rather than dealing solely with hydrocyclones the scope has been expanded to include all "vortex technologies" so that gas cyclones are welcomed for the first time. Fast swirling flow is a real challenge to CFD but the technique features in several papers this time.
