Inertial-Range Dynamics and Mixing


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

29th September 2008 to 3rd October 2008

Organisers: Professor Peter Davidson (Cambridge), Professor Yukio Kaneda (Nagoya) and Professor Katepalli Sreenivasan (ICTP)

Workshop Theme

Despite the long history of turbulence research, there still remain many fundamental unanswered questions. Many of these relate to Inertial-Range Dynamics and Mixing in turbulence. The proposed 5-day workshop will focus on the near-universal physics of such phenomena as observed in certain canonical turbulent flows at high Reynolds number. It will bring together researchers in the communities of theory, modelling, numerical simulations, laboratory experiments and field-observations, to discuss and exchange new ideas on various themes, including:

  • Intermittency, Scaling and Universality
  • Turbulent Diffusion (single- and two-particle) and Mixing
  • Lagrangian Dynamics and Statistics
  • Coarse Graining - Modelling
  • Reynolds Number and Scale Dependence
  • Anisotropy, Inhomogeneity and Nonstationarity
  • Superfluid Turbulence, MHD, 2-D Turbulence
  • Vortex Dynamics and Structure
