Computational modelling of flows is vital for understanding & controlling processes relevant to aeronautical, environmental and numerous engineering problems. Most flows are turbulent, this dynamic complexity generally being treated using inexpensive deterministic mathematical models requiring calibration and validation against measurements. The increasing power of computers is allowing much less model dependent approaches. These will be explored in an application centred context between diverse fields.
Invited speakers and Chairs include Nick Georgiadis, Bill George, Dr Andrew Brown, Dr Mike Cullen, Lars Davidson, Professor Dimitris Drikakis, Christer Fureby, Bernard Geurts, Fernando Grinstein, Anthony Hutton, Sinisa Krajnovic, Professor Michael Leschziner, Professor Len Margolin, Mr Kevin Menzies, Professor Pierre Saugat, David Youngs, Simon Eastwood.
A draft programme and biographical information on the speakers is available on the Royal Society website.
Royal Society Discussion Meetings are international-level two-day scientific conferences that address areas of rapidly developing, inter-disciplinary research, and are intended for researchers in the field.
Attending the meeting is free, an optional lunch is provided at a charge. Bookings must be made in advance via the Royal Society website.
