7th International ERCOFTAC Symposium on Engineering Turbulence Modelling and Measurements (ETMM-7)

4th - 8th June 2008

Amathus Beach Hotel, Limassol, Cyprus

The central role of turbulence in aerodynamics, propulsion, power generation, pollution, heat transfer, acoustics and all manner of loss-ca using mechanisms, continues to make it a subject of intensive research. At a fundamental level, turbulence researchers aim to illuminate the basic mechanisms governing the phenomenon and its interaction with other flow-physical processes; modellers strive to improve statistical closures and extend the predictive capabilities of simulation strategies; and experimentalists endeavour to provide insight and data for model validation and design. At the applied level, industrial practitioners synthesize models, data and insight to derive design-oriented predictions of important operational conditions of fluid-flow components and processes.

ETMM7 aims to provide a bridge between researchers and practitioners by exposing progress in the more applied, industrially-oriented areas of turbulence research. This includes the development and improvement of statistical closures for practical applications; the enhancement and extension of simulation strategies; novel applications of prediction schemes to complex flow conditions and geometries, including interactions between turbulence and chemistry, flexible structures and dispersed phases; and the symbiosis of modelling, simulation and experimental research.


  • Novel modelling and simulation methods for practically relevant turbulent flows, including interaction with beat and mass transfer, combustion and multi-phase transport
  • Novel experimental techniques for flow, turbulence and combustion
  • New experimental studies and data sets
