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).

Welcome to our new webpage

International Collaboration for Turbulence Research is a collaborative effort of an experiment, simulation, and theory focusing on the collaborative approach towards the investigation of turbulent flows.

We feel proud to present you our new webportal. It is still under development and all feedback is welcome.

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.
