iTi 2016 | Conference on Turbulence

iTi 2016 | September 7th-9th, 2016

Workshop on high Reynolds number wall bounded turbulent flows – a pipe flow perspective | September 5th-6th, 2016

General Information

The iTi (interdisciplinary Turbulence initiative) is a series of conferences organized in order to focus on different aspects of both fundamental and applied turbulence research. Therefore, both engineers and physicists working in the field of turbulence are invited to join the conference. Topics comprise themes such as:

Fundamentals, Modeling, Simulation (DNS and LES), Mathematical Methods, Coherent Structures/Vortices, Scaling Laws and Intermittency, Large Re Flows Experiments, Convection, Polymer and Scalar, Scalar Mixing and Particle, Turbulent Boundary Layers, Atmospheric Flows and MHD to name only a few.

This year, the iTi conference will be combined with a two-day workshop on “High Reynolds number turbulent flows – a large-scale infrastructure perspective”. The workshop is organised within the European consortium EuHIT (European High-Performance Infrastructures in Turbulence). The aim is to present the two large-scale Italian infrastructures, i.e. the “Long Pipe” in CICLoPE (University of Bologna) and the “TurLab” rotating platform (University of Torino) to both industrial and scientific community and to discuss in an open atmosphere recent developments in wall bounded and geophysical turbulence mostly related to high Reynolds number flows.
