Turbulent Flows Workshop

2nd ERCOFTAC SIG 44 Workshop

Turbulent flows: fundamentals and applications

15-16 April 2013

Salle des Conseils, Hôtel Pinet, Université de Poitiers, 15 rue de l'Hotel Dieu, 86034 Poitiers

    Following the success of the 1st and 2nd UK-Japan Bilateral Workshops held in 2011/2012 (see and the recent granting of the Marie-Curie Innovative Doctoral Programme on "Conceptually New Multiscale Solutions To Industrial Flow Problems", we are pleased to announce the ERCOFTAC SIG44 Workshop on "Turbulent flows: fundamentals and applications"

    This workshop will be held at the University of Poitiers on the 15th and 16th April 2013. There will be significant emphasis on discussions and possibilities for cross-fertilisation between different approaches, flows and applications.
