Fluid Dynamics is one of the most important topics of applied mathematics and physics. Together with complex flows and turbulence, multiphase flows remains one of the most challenging areas of computational mechanics, and even seemingly simple problems remain unsolved to date. Multiphase flows are found in all areas of technology, at all length scales and flow regimes. The fluids involved can be compressible or incompressible, linear or nonlinear. Because of the complexity of the problem, it is often essential to utilize advanced computational and experimental methods to solve the complex equations that describe them. Challenges in these simulations include nonlinear fluids, treating drop breakup and coalescence, characterizing phase structures, and many others.This volume brings together work presented at the Fourth International Conference on Computational and Experimental Methods in Multiphase and Complex Flows. Featured topics include: Suspensions; Bubble and Drop Dynamics; Flow in Porous Media; Interfaces; Turbulent Flow; Injectors and Nozzles; Particle Image Velocimetry; Macroscale Constitutive Models; Large Eddy Simulation; Finite Volumes; Interface Tracking Methods; Biological Flows; Environmental Multiphase Flow; Phase Changes and Stochastic Modelling.Such problems become even more important when solutions for transient flow are sought. ac Multifluid: formal governing equations (mass, momentum and energy) are solved with appropriate closure laws (usually based on empirical data). ... The flow regime boundaries are established through transition models ( e.g. the model of Hewitt and Jayanti  for the slug-churn transition) and each ... The applicability of interface tracking methods is usually limited to simple flow configurations.
