iTi 2018 | Conference on Turbulence

iTi 2018 | September 5th-7th, 2018

Turbulent aspects in wind-energy | September 3rd (half day)-4th, 2018

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, Modelling, Simulations (DNS and LES), Mathematical Methods, Coherent structures/Vortices, Scaling Laws and Intermittency, Large Re flows experiments, Convection, Polymers and Scalars, Scalar Mixing and Particles, 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 Turbulent aspects in wind-energy. The aim of the workshop is to discuss the scale dependent turbulent aspects which play an important role for renewable energies. In particular, for wind energy the instant conversion dynamics at the rotor blades is dominated by small-scale turbulence. To attend this workshop an additional registration is required.
