Summerschool: Compressible Turbulence and Mixing II

IUSTI, 5, Rue Enrico Fermi, Technopôle de Château-Gombert, 13453 Marseille Cedex 13, France,

July 7th - 11th, 2008 

This is the second edition of a summer school on compressible turbulence. It aims at offering an up-to-date introduction to different aspects of turbulence and mixing in compressible flows as found in a wide range of situations and disciplines, including aerodynamics, aeroacoustics, combustion and astrophysics. The different lectures cover theoretical, experimental and numerical aspects. It is expected that the diversity of the themes addressed will be intellectually stimulating and will impulse fruitful cross-fertilization.

The school will blend extended introduction courses and shorter invited presentations. Each PhD student will be invited to give a short seminar on his/her ongoing work and the programme will be scheduled so that enough time will be allocated , not only for interaction between lecturers and students, but also to foster cross fertilization across disciplines. Hopefully some new ideas will emerge and will be discussed at a closing round table

The lectures are made for scientists of various origins, including PhD students, post-doc scientist and engineers. Special sessions will be organized for those of the participants, in particular PhD students, who want to present their current research for open discussion.
