PIV Course 2018, Application of Particle Image VelocimetryTheory and Practice, March 19 -23, 2018

Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is a non-intrusive, experimental technique, which allows to capture the flow velocity of large flow fields instantaneously.

The PIV course comprises lectures on the fundamental aspects of PIV by, Prof. Westerweel, Delft, Prof. Kähler, München, Prof. Lecordier, Rennes, Lille and Dr. Gerd Gülker, Oldenburg, as well as practices in the laboratory and in the wind tunnel, where the participants will have the opportunity to carry out the recording and the evaluation of PIV images by themselves in small groups.


70th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics

The 70th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics will be held in Denver on November 19-21, 2017. As part of that meeting there will be a mini-symposium and focus session on "Fluid Dynamics of Atmospheric Clouds". The mini symposium will feature invited speakers representing some of the variety and latest results in the field, including Jeremie Bec (Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur), Filippo Coletti (University of Minnesota), Juan Pedro Mellado (Max Planck Institute for Meteorology), Ryo Onishi (JAMSTEC), David Randall (Colorado State University), and Sam Stechmann (University of Wisconsin).


What is ICTR?

ICTR is a collaborative effort of experiment, simulation, and theory focusing on the spatio-temporal dynamics of particles in turbulent flows. This Lagrangian approach is key to the understanding of many environmental, technical, and biological systems. ICTR was born out of the realization that progress in turbulence requires going beyond the financial, technical, and manpower capabilities of a single researcher or a single research group.

ICTR uses and develops shared experimental facilities, data analysis technology, and new theoretical concepts and approaches. ICTR fosters opportunities for exchange of students, postdocs and senior researchers. ICTR provides an open-access knowledge base of its experimental, numerical and theoretical findings.
