Transition Mechanisms, Prediction and Control

Purpose and focus of SIG

SIG33 provides a forum for exchange of information on all aspects of laminar-turbulent transition mechanisms, prediction and control.

Currently, the main focus of SIG33 are the following:

  • Direct Numerical Simulation
  • Passive Transition Control
  • Active Transition Control
  • Global Flow Instability
  • Modal and Nonmodal Flow Instability
  • Flow Receptivity
  • Bifurcation Phenomena

The SIG aims to disseminate knowledge through workshops and summer schools.
