CSI Calendar Image August 2014
This month's calendar image was produced by Victor Avsarkisov (FDY) and shows a single coherent vortical structure (hairpin) generated by turbulence in the near-wall region. The red thin arrows represent the instantaneous velocity field, green thick arrows the instantaneous vorticity field. go
Head of Research Group Drag and Circulation Control is granted a Heisenberg Fellowship by the DFG
Dr.-Ing. Sven Grundmann, head of research group Drag and Circulation Control at the CSI, has been granted a Heisenberg Fellowship by the German Research Foundation (DFG). He is thus provided with the opportunity to prepare for a leading position in science and research and to use the time to work on advanced research topics. go
New exhibition in CSI building
A new exhibition in the entrance hall of the CSI building (L2|06) gives insight into the experimental investigation of the local heat flux during boiling phenomena under reduced gravity and microgravity. The experiments were conducted at the Institute for Technical Thermodynamics.
The following CSI publications are published CSI Papers of the Month June 2014. Congratulations to the authors. go
2nd International Conference on Numerical Methods in Multiphase Flows: June 30 to July 2, 2014.
Considering the vast importance of multiphase flows in various applications ranging from medcine to aeronautics and the growing importance of Computational Fluid Dynamics in multiphase flows, we are hosting the 2nd International Conference on Numerical Methods in Multiphase Flows (ICNMMF-II), to be held in Darmstadt, Germany, from June 30 to July 2, 2014. go
Students develop water test channel for flow visualization
During an Advanced Design Project (ADP), students from the institute of Fluid Mechanics and Aerodynamics (SLA) have designed and constructed a water test channel for flow visualization. The channel can be used to demonstrate basic flow experiments and visualize them in the lecture hall. The group was inspired by the water test channel of Ludwig Prandtl (1875-1953). go
Guest Lecture by Prof. Masanori Monde (Kyushu University, Japan)
