Introduction to Stability and Transition Analysis Methods - SSEMID
Date: Monday 23 October 2017 to Wednesday 25 October 2017
Location : von Karman institute for Fluid Dynamics, Waterloosesteenweg 72, 1640 Sint-Genesius-Rode, Belgium, Main Conference Room
Flow instability analysis plays an active role in the identification and explanation of some of the most challenging topics of fluid mechanics. Its application in cases of industrial interest ranges from re-entry vehicles, to detached flows, up to aeroacoustic interactions and drag reduction for air vehicles.
The course will introduce several aspects of the stability theory dealing with different phenomena and scenarios. Lectures will range from traditional linear stability method to parabolized stability equations and global stability. Moreover they will address compressible and incompressible flows stability in laminar and turbulent regimes, describing theoretical foundations, numerical methods and applications.
