Industry Events 2012 

Dr Richard Seoud, Industry Engagement Officer, announces the 2012 programme of events for industry:


 

Course: Uncertainty Management & Quantification in Industrial Analysis & Design

15th - 16th May 2012, EDF, Paris, France

Coordinator: Prof. Charles Hirsch, Numeca International, Belgium

Scope:

- Industry requirements and objectives for uncertainty quantification (UQ) and risk reduction with robust design

- Methodologies for UQ and for robust design under uncertainties

- Examples of applications and test cases with prescribed uncertainties

- Introduction to robust design methodologies

- Presents the state of the art and outlook for next Technology Readiness Level (TRL), including an introduction to a best practice guide for UQ

 

Course: Hybrid RANS-LES Methods in Industrial CFD: Overview, Guidance and Examples

18th - 19th June 2012, Crowne Plaza Hotel, Hampton Marina, Virginia, USA

Coordinator: Dr. Charlie Mockett, TU Berlin, Germany

Scope:

- An overview of turbulence modelling

- A firm foundation in the theory and ideas underlying
RANS, LES and Hybrid RANS-LES techniques.
 

- Recommendations and guidance for the appropriate and effective application of RANS and Hybrid RANS-LES

- Examples from real-world engineering simulations

 

Course: CFD for Dispersed Multi-Phase Flow

18th - 19th July 2012, Institute for Thermal Turbomachinery and Machine Dynamics, Graz, Austria

Coordinator: Prof. Martin Sommerfeld, Universitat Halle-Wittenberg, Germany

Scope:

- Provide fundamental background knowledge on fluid mechanics of dispersed multi-phase flows

- Discuss engineering models for dispersed multi-phase flow problems and their translation into CFD problems for Euler-Euler and Euler-Lagrange formulations

- Provide guidance on best practices

 

Coronary arterial and microvascular fluid-structure interactions: Evolving concepts and investigative approaches

17th September 2012, National Heart and Lung Institute, London UK

Coordinator: Dr. P. Kilner, NHS, UK

Scope:

- Overview of cardiovascular fluid dynamics

- Fluid dynamic and fluid-structural principles

- Experimental techniques

- Modern developments

 

Course: Computational Aeroacoustics

30th - 31st October 2012, GE, Munich, Germany

Coordinator: Prof. C. Bailey, Ecole Centrale de Lyon, France

Scope:

- Modelling techniques

- Computational tools

- Industrial applications

 

Course: Best Practice for Engineering CFD

Please see the Programme of Events 2013 (published in Nov 2012)

Coordinator: Prof. Anthony Hutton, ERCOFTAC UK

Scope:

- Engineering applications of CFD for single-phase, compressible and incompressible, steady and unsteady, turbulent flows, with and without heat transfer.

- The main focus will be on RANS applications, but an introduction to the special considerations required by LES and hybrid methods is also given.

- Guidance on best practices and common pitfalls to be avoided.
