Laminar‐turbulent Transition Workshop

17th October 2024 - 18th October 2024
City, University of London
Prof. Mike Gaster and Dr. Chetan Jagadeesh


Workshop on laminar‐turbulent transition, with a focus on the detection and control of transition.

Workshop Overview:
This advanced workshop will cover research and developments in laminar‐turbulent transition detection and control. The event will begin with a review of the fundamental concepts of laminar and turbulent flow, as well as the transition process itself. Participants will then learn about a variety of advanced methods for detecting and controlling transition, including:

  • Hot‐wire anemometry
  • Pressure measurements
  • Global stability analysis
  • Flow control

The workshop will include a series of hands‐on exercises in which participants will use state‐of‐the‐art experimental tools to detect and control transition in a diverse range of flow configurations. The workshop will conclude with an open discussion of the current challenges and future directions in laminar‐turbulent transition detection and control. This could include topics such as the development of new detection and control methods, the integration of laminar‐turbulent transition detection and control into real‐world applications, and the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning to improve laminar‐turbulent transition detection and control.

This workshop is designed for researchers and engineers who have a prior understanding of the basics of fluid dynamics and laminar‐turbulent transition.
