Dynamics and Instabilities of Flows with Particles Across Length Scales

Flows of particles suspended in fluid are commonplace, ranging from large-scale geophysical processes down to physiological blood flows. Due to their ubiquity and inherent complexity, particle-laden flows have been studied in multiple scientific communities, with the particular focus on particle transport, collective motion, pattern formation, and new rheological properties. In this symposium, we highlight emergent research in flows with particles that exhibit new macroscopic phenomena from different perspectives and disciplines.
