Short Course on Transition and Turbulence

Short Course on Transition and Turbulence, to be held at PUC-Rio from September 15 to 19, 2014, with Prof. Yury S. Kachanov, from ITAM (Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Siberian Division), who will be in town for IUTAM-ABCM (http://www.ndf.poli.usp.br/SLTT2014/), held in the week before.

The short course will be held from September 15 to 19, one week before the IX Escola de Transição e Turbulência (http://www.unisinos.br/eventos/eptt/inicio).

It is a 15-hours course, and students can enroll in the 1 credit-discipline Estudo Dirigido.

Laminar-Turbulent Transition Symposium (Simpósio Transição Laminar-Turbulento, IUTAM – ABCM)

Laminar-Turbulent Transition Symposium (Simpósio Transição Laminar-Turbulento, IUTAM – ABCM), to be held from september 8 to 12, 2014, in Rio de Janeiro (http://www.ndf.poli.usp.br/SLTT2014/).

The dynamics of transition from laminar to turbulent flows is, until today, one of the great challenges in the field of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. A series of IUTAM symposia held over the last 35 years at renowned research centers – Stuttgart, Novosibirsk, Toulouse, Sendai, Sedona (Arizona), Bangalore and Stockholm – has proven to be of great value in promoting advances within this field of knowledge.

Currently, this research area is changing significantly towards various directions. The 8th meeting of the series will be held in Rio de Janeiro, to discuss the progress attained since the last meeting in Stockholm (2009), and to outline the important issues to be tackled in the near future.
