Summer School in Industrial CFD
This will be the second running of this popular event initially sponsored by EPSRC. The course aims to bridge the knowledge gap faced by new CFD users and to enable them to use CFD technology with more confidence. The course is open to masters and PhD students as well as industrialists. It focuses on the use of commercial codes and calls on the experience of academics, industrialists and code vendors who will form the lecturing body.
Date: June 19, 2006 - June 23, 2006
Location: The University of Nottingham, Nottingham, United Kingdom

Application Areas: General CFD
Deadlines: June 23, 2006 (abstract), May 22, 2006 (registration)
Type of Event: Course, International

The objective of the proposed summer school is to address 
the needs identified in the EPSRC call for summer schools 
on 'Mathematics for Engineers' through the continuation of 
the provision of a novel Computational Fluid Dynamics 
(CFD) course.

This course will provide understanding of the mathematical 
foundation and focus on a detailed overview of the 
physical models necessary for research in Chemical, Civil 
and Environmental and Mechanical Engineering amongst other 
fields of engineering and science. The course will prepare 
future users of CFD to make the best possible usage of the 
available technology through an emphasis on fluid 
mechanics and potential applications of the constitutive 
models as well as the understanding of the mathematical 
foundations. Each key topic will be taught by a recognised 
expert in the field, with the first few days focussing on 
the basic mathematics and the other days covering 
specialist topics such as turbulence and aerodynamics and 
multiphase flow. Two thirds of the course will be lecture 
based, and the remaining third will be 'hands-on' 
practicals using popular commercial CFD codes. The course 
will build on the experience gained at the University of 
Nottingham with its Applied CFD course, on last year’s 
successful EPSRC Summer School in Industrial CFD and the 
CFD@Nottingham Seminar and Lecture Series.

The organisers are currently awaiting decision regarding 
funding to be used to offer up to 15 full scholarships to 
EPSRC-funded students. Complete information regarding the 
technical and financial details are available on request. 
These will also be posted on the Group's website soon
