5th International Conference on Turbulence and Interactions

Date: 25/06/2018 - 29/06/2018

Location: Les trois Ilets, Martinique, West coast Indies, France


Organiser: UPEM, ONERA, EPFL, CEA, DLR, Univ. Twente, Univ. Udine

Coordinators: Stéphane Vincent 

ERCOFTAC Member: Bernard Geurts


These interactive oriented meetings were aimed at opening up new directions in research to explore emerging research fields with potential impact on new developments in turbulence.

The TI 2018 conference is devoted to academic researchers as well as engineers from scientific institutions and industries. The fields covered by the conference are:

- aeronautics and space (plane design, rockets, engines, tactical objects and military applications, satellites, optimization of engines and reductions in pollutant emissions)
- energy (nuclear, fossil fuels, wind and marine power, optimization of resources, reduction of pollution, renewable energies)
- industrial processes (engines, chemichal reactors, heat and mass exchangers, fluidized beds, petroleum engineering, design of new material)
- environment (meteorology, cyclones, tsunamis, storms, port infrastructure, pollution in soils and rivers)
- high performance computing HPC (new algorithms and sovers, high order methods, mixed // computing, new architectures and GPU)

The workshop, which usually lasted 5 days, had a wide participation mainly from across Europe and involve mature scientists as well as young, independent researchers and scholars with leadership potential.

The relatively small scale (in terms of people involved) provided an ideal platform for focus on the topic and for all participants to contribute to discussions and plan follow-up collaborative work.

The 5th International conference on Turbulence and Interactions will take place in Martinique, les Trois Ilets - Hôtel Carayou.
