Speaker: Adrian Lozano-Duran, MIT, USA Date/Time: Friday 21st May 2021 4:00pm BST/11am EST Title: Cause-and-effect of linear mechanisms sustaining in wall turbulence Abstract: Despite the nonlinear nature of turbulence, there is evidence that part of the energy-transfer mechanisms sustaining wall turbulence can be ascribed to linear processes. The different scenarios stem from linear stability theory and comprise exponential instabilities,…
Speaker: George Fortune, University of Cambridge, UK Date/Time: Friday 14th May 2021 4:00pm BST/11am EST Title: Waltzing worms: the dynamics of plant-animal collective vortex structures Abstract: Circular milling, a stunning manifestation of collective motion, is found across the natural world, from fish shoals to army ants. It has been observed recently that the plant-animal worm Symsagittifera roscoffensis exhibits circular milling behaviour,…
The ECR Forum of the Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics (LIFD) are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a Rapids presentation competition (3-minute talks) on 12th May to showcase the research and exhibition skill of the Leeds Fluids community. The competition is open to any PGR, Post-Doc, or early-stage research fellow who has conducted research…
Speaker: Zijing Ding, Harbin Institute of Technology, China Date/Time: Friday 7th May 2021 4:00pm BST/11am EST Title: Coating Liquid Films down a Vertical Fibre Abstract: Previous experimental study by Kliakhandler et al. (JFM 429:381-390, 2001) reported three different flow patterns of a liquid film flowing down a vertical cylinder. The film flow is unstable due to the famous Plateau-Rayleigh…
Speaker: Jesse Capecelatro, University of Michigan, USA Date/Time: Friday 30th April 2021 4:00pm BST/11am EST Title: Turbulence modeling of strongly-coupled gas-particle flows Abstract: Many natural and industrial processes involve the flow of solid particles or liquid droplets whose dynamical evolution are intimately coupled with a carrier gas. A peculiar behavior of such flows is their ability to give…
Pleased to announce details of our upcoming LIFD Colloquium which will showcase the work of three early career researchers.Date: 21st April 2021Time: 14.00-15.30 GMTWhere: ZoomTopics: Bayesian Aerothermal Interpolation; Using Dissipative Particle Dynamics for Investigating Surfactant Solutions Under Shearing; Simulating the interaction between tidal flows and convectionSign up: https://lnkd.in/eN24Xt5 LIFD Colloquium April 2021 flyer
Speaker: Jon Aurnou, UCLA, USA Date/Time: Friday 19th March, 2021. 4:00 pm GMT/11am EST Title: Dynamo Generating Flows in Planetary Cores Abstract: Planetary bodies typically host substantial liquid metal interior fluid layers. The fluid layers are often in turbulent motion due to planetary thermochemical evolutionary processes. This rapidly rotating turbulence can generate coherent, planetary-scale magnetic fields that can protectively shield a…
Speaker: Mohammad Farazmand, North Carolina State University, USA Date/Time: Friday 12th March, 2021. 4:00 pm GMT/11am EST Title: TBC Abstract: *topic to be confirmed*
Speaker: Marina Levy, LOCEAN-IPSL, France Date/Time: Friday 5th March, 2021. 4:00 pm GMT/11am EST Title: Bringing fluid dynamics to life in the ocean Abstract: No flow, no life. Without movement in the fluid, there would barely be any life in the ocean. Fluid movements allow the continuous supply of nutrients essential to photosynthesis in the sunlit layer of the ocean. This…
Speaker: Mattia Gazzola, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA Date/Time: Friday 26th February, 2021. 4:00 pm GMT/11am EST Title: Harnessing viscous streaming in complex active systems: mini-bots in fluids. Abstract: Viscous streaming is a phenomenon where an oscillating body generates stable, predictable and robust fluid flows that can be used to manipulate the body’s local surroundings. Viscous streaming has been well…
