Speaker: Karen Flack, United States Naval Academy, USA Date/Time: Friday 3rd December 2021 4pm GMT/11am EST Title: Prediction of Drag for Rough Wall Boundary Layer Flows Abstract: Significant progress has been made towards the understanding of rough-wall boundary layers and the subsequent drag penalty. Continued progress is promising since a larger range of parameter space can now be investigated…
Speaker: Anne-Virginie Salsac, CNRS Director of Research, Biomechanics and Bioengineering Laboratory, Université de Technologie de Compiègne, France Date/Time: Friday 5th November 2021 4pm GMT/12am EDT Title: Fluid structure interactions of a microcapsule in flow: when numerical modeling meet experiments Abstract: Encapsulation consists in enclosing an internal medium in a solid semi-permeable membrane to protect it and…
LIFD member session: EPSRC responsive mode funding , opportunities and experiences About this event We are pleased to invite you to virtually join us on the 8th October 2021, 10.00am-11.00am, for a brief update on the latest progress and upcoming activities for LIFD, followed by an introduction to EPSRC responsive mode grants available, and a…
LEEDS INSTITUTE FOR FLUID DYNAMICS: Virtual Colloquium About this event Speaker: Professor James Sprittles, Mathematics Institute, University of Warwick Title: Droplet dynamics in the presence of gas nanofilms: merging, wetting, bouncing & levitation Bio: James Sprittles is a Professor in the Mathematics Institute at the University of Warwick who is interested in the computational modelling of small scale…
New report indicates UK Fluid Dynamics contributes £14 billion to UK economy About this event The UK Fluids Network and Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics (LIFD) are hosting a launch event for a new report which for the first time details the current value of fluid dynamics to the UK. Fluid Dynamics is the study…
LEEDS INSTITUTE FOR FLUID DYNAMICS: Virtual Colloquium About this event Speaker: Alison Stirling, Met Office Title: Modelling atmospheric convection for meteorological prediction Bio: Alison joined the convection group at the Met Office having obtained a degree in theoretical physics from the University of Cambridge and a PhD in astronomy from the Institute for Astronomy at…
Speaker: Guohua Wang, Lanzhou University, China Date/Time: Friday 18th June 2021 4:00pm BST/11am EDT Title: Very-large scale motions in the atmospheric surface layer Abstract: Very-large scale motions (VLSMs) are typical structures in wall-bounded turbulence at high Reynolds number, which make important contributions to mass and energy transport. This talk will present the atmospheric surface layer observations carried out at…
Speaker: Jane Bae, Harvard University, USA Date/Time: Friday 11th June 2021 4:00pm BST/11am EDT Title: Nonlinear interaction of the self-sustaining process in the near-wall region of wall-bounded turbulence Abstract: We investigate the nonlinear interaction in the self-sustaining process of wall-bounded turbulence. Resolvent analysis is used to identify the principal forcing (nonlinear) mode which produces the maximum amplification in direct…
  Speaker: Laura Cope, Cambridge University, UK Date/Time: Friday 4th June 2021 4:00pm BST/11am EDT Title: The dynamics of stratified horizontal shear flows at low Péclet number Abstract: Stratified flows are ubiquitous; examples include atmospheres and oceans in geophysics and stellar interiors in astrophysics. The interaction of a stable stratification with a background velocity distribution can develop into stratified…
Speaker: Chris Howland, University of Twente, Netherlands Date/Time: Friday 28th May 2021 4:00pm BST/11am EST Title: Quantifying mixing in simulations of stratified flows Abstract: Turbulent mixing exerts a significant influence on many physical processes in the ocean. In a stably stratified Boussinesq fluid, this irreversible mixing describes the conversion of available potential energy (APE) to background potential energy (BPE)….
