EVENTS  2012

Gerhard Jirka Summer School on Environmental Fluid Mechanics - from theory to applications

Juni 11 - 20, 2012, Horw Switzerland

Environmental Fluid Mechanics (EFM) is concerned with the fluid motions and associated mass, heat and momentum transport processes that occur at various scales of the earth’s hydrosphere and atmosphere. The interaction of flows and reactions between the natural and built environments is at the centre of EFM.  The School will follow closely the aims and objectives established successfully at the foregoing events held at the Universities of Karlsruhe in 1999 and 2006, Dundee in 2001, Budapest in 2004 and Santiago de Chile in 2009. It will cover the basic theoretical principles underlying a range of environmental flows and their mathematical description.  From theory to applications will be a core element of this edition of the School. Selected computational simulation models and examples of engineering design and environmental applications will be demonstrated. The relation to the environmental concerns will be more intensively highlighted than in former courses.

The course is intended for postgraduate students (MSc or PhD candidates), engineers and scientists in industry, government or research institutions involved in environmental engineering, planning or impact prediction.


27-31 August 2012, Prague,  Czech Republic

Institute of Mathematics of the Academy of Sciences of Czech Republic and Czech Technical University in Prague, in association with the Institute of Thermomechanics of the Academy of Sciences of Czech RepublicThe aim of the summer school is to present a comprehensive series of lectures on various aspects of non-homogeneous fluids and flows. The emphasize will be on mathematical, computational and experimental topics originating in environmental applications. The summer course is prepared for graduate students, young scientists, and other interested specialists. Besides of the course lectures, the program will include a one day workshop (on Wednesday, August 29) dedicated to short, more advanced lectures given by attending scientists.
