Workshop Rotating Flow

Workshop Rotating Flow 18-19 September 2017 at TU Darmstadt.

Rotating flows are fascinating due to the richness of in-volved physical phenomena. These are caused by some-times surprising interactions of forces and the kinematics of vortices. Understanding these phenomena is key to design turbomachines and many other devices for the oil and gas industry, power plants, process engineering as well as medical engineering. To further expand this understanding, generic expe-riments and simulations are conducted by researchers. The workshop follows the tradition of “The First Madingley Workshop” in Cambridge (UK) 2014 and aims to create an open space for discussions about experimental techniques, simula-tions and analytical approaches.

Scope

Contributions under the general heading of rotating flows are particularly encouraged. These topics are, but not limited,

  • rotating boundary layers,
  • flows in rotating machines,
  • the successful integration of the distinct disciplines (experimental, analytical and high performance calculation).

The workshop servers to enable informal discussion and networking regarding rotating flows.

Registration

One-page abstracts can be submitted by email until 31 May 2017. Speakers are asked to prepare a 20 minute talk, followed by a 10 minute discussion. The number of participants is limited to 25. Lunch and dinner are included and no workshop fees will be charged.

Program

Workshop starts on Monday 18 September 8:30 am and ends by Tuesday 19 September 4:30 pm.

There will be a social event on Sunday 17 September from 02:00 pm until evening.

Official flyer and agenda for the workshop can be found here. There will be no parallel session.

Detailed program will be published by 1 June 2017.

Social event

We invite you to a trip to „Rheingau“, famous for its delicious white wine. After a walk through the beautiful landscape, we will have a dinner in the vineyard. The trip starts at midday on Sunday, 17 September. Please let us know if you would like to participate in this social event.
