Phd course: Turbulence

A 2-week doctoral course on turbulence is organized by the Doctoral School in Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering (https://www.unitn.it/dricam/) of the University of Trento, Italy, from 7 to 18 February 2022. The course can be attended on-site or online. More information in the attached pdf.

Abstract. Turbulence is one of the last mysteries, not yet fully understood, in nonlinear fluid mechanics (including multiphase flows). In this course, we provide an introduction to turbulence by coupling the analysis of the most used numerical models (e.g., k-epsilon model) and the interpretation of real-world measurements, with a special focus on processes occurring in the atmosphere and in stratified water bodies such as lakes. The course covers theoretical and numerical aspects of turbulence modelling and introduces the necessary statistical tools for the analysis of data from turbulence observations both in the field and in the laboratory.
