2017 - New Challenges in Wall Turbulence, 14–16 June, Lille, France

Workshop « New Challenges in Wall Turbulence »14–16 June 2017, Lille, France

The major aim of the workshop is to provide opportunities to stimulate exchanges about new development in theories and new experimental and numerical tools in order to face new challenges in wall turbulence.

The workshop will be the oppotunity to honor the scientific career of Michel Stanislas who has spanned transformative developments in optical measurement techniques and in the collection of unprecedented wall turbulence data over the past 30 years. He very significantly contributed to both, and his legacy includes one of the few advanced state-of-the-art wind tunnels worldwide for wall turbulence research. It is now time to reflect on these developments and to start addressing the new challenges which these developments have led us to, theoretically, computationally and experimentally.

2015 - EUROMECH-ERCOFTAC Workshop "Turbulence Cascades"

There have been a number of developments relating to turbulent cascades in various 3D flows over the past 10 years or so, including wall turbulence, boundary-free turbulent shear flows, stratified and/or rotating turbulence, periodic Navier-Stokes turbulence and even truncated incompressible Euler flows. The distinction between equilibrium and non-equilibrium cascades is now becoming pertinent as both types of cascade appear to have well-defined scaling laws. The -5/3 wavenumber scaling appears in many flows even when the conditions for its prediction by Kolmogorov's theory fail. The consequences for turbulence modelling of all types, including Large Eddy Simulations, are potentially far reaching and require intensified attention.

The emphasis and focus will be on hydrodynamic turbulence, but given the ubiquity of the cascade concept in general, connections with different systems such as weak turbulence will also be explored.

The workshop is funded by EUROMECH and ERCOFTAC (SIGs 35 & 44) through the H2020 project "e-CAERO 2".

2014 - Incompact3d User Group Meeting

Incompact3d User Group Meeting

Imperial College London, Department of Aeronautics, Lecture Room 266

24th April 2014

 Incompact3d is an open source code originating from the University of Poitiers, France and developed there as well as, more recently, in the Turbulence, Mixing and Flow Control Group at Imperial College London. It is dedicated to Direct and Large Eddy Simulations using High Performance Computing (HPC) to simulate turbulent flows at the interface between academic research and upstream industrial R&D.

The first release of Incompact3d was launched in October 2012 and the code has now more than 100 regular users spread across 30 universities worldwide. To date, more than 50 papers have been published based on this code. Companies such as EDF Energy, both in France and in the UK, as well as PETROBRAS in Brazil are currently investing in research based on Incompact3d. It was recently the recipient of the HPC Innovation Excellence Award at the 2013 International Supercomputing Conference - the largest conference dedicated to supercomputing - thanks to its performance and versatility.

This User Group Meeting will be a good opportunity to learn about the code and its capabilities, and to discuss the code with its users. 

LOCATION: Room ROH 266, Aeronautics Department, Imperial College London, South Kensington Campus, SW72AZ, London, UK
It is free to attend the meeting.

Programme theme:

The role of turbulence in cloud formation and precipitation is a controversial issue which divides the cloud physics community. Its precise effect is hard to quantify and makes an assessment of its importance difficult. But with both measurement and modelling of clouds becoming possible at ever finer scales, the question clearly needs to be addressed. The wealth of research on this issue in recent years is testament to this. The question has also attracted the attention of many in the turbulence community particularly in the role of the preferential concentration of droplets. Yet there are many other processes at work in clouds which, especially on large scales, could render turbulence at best a second order effect.
While the question of whether turbulence is important in cloud physics is central to the workshop, we are seeking as wide a range of interests and opinions as possible. Some of the questions we would
like to see addressed include: what are the interactions between small-scale turbulence and the mean flow (updraught/downdraught) and how does it affect condensation and evaporation?

What is the role of preferential concentration, and of large accelerations, during the 'explosive' stage of droplet formation? What is the effect of radiation on turbulence and vice-versa? Is the 3D structure of the radiation field important in cloud development? How does small-scale turbulence affect entrainment?

How does the precipitation field affect the velocity field? Does turbulence play a role in the collisional break-up of droplets? How do aerosols fit in? The aim of this workshop is to bring together physicists, engineers and mathematicians working in both cloud physics and turbulence to assess the current state of knowledge, plan future research and foster collaboration. 

While observations are key to developing our understanding of clouds, there are many questions that can only be addressed at the moment with mathematical models or laboratory experiments. At a theoretical level there are considerable challenges in understanding the underlying equations, not least, in developing a rigorous framework for moist convection.

Within the engineering community there is considerable experience of both mathematical models and laboratory experiments of droplets in turbulent flows. Although clouds provide another example of a turbulent flow with droplets, the context is, of course, different. It is through the interaction of these diverse but overlapping disciplines that we hope to produce some answers to the questions posed above.
