ERCOFTAC Special Interest Group 5 Second Workshop on "Urban Scale CFD"
This event aims to review and further discuss the challenges met across the scales in modelling urban environments with CFD. Scales will start at the individual building scale, move on to consider groups of buildings, street canyons and will extend to cities, forests and ABL models. A lead speaker will launch the each workshop session, each of which will then be open to delagates presentation and the floor. Finally the views of a reknowned experimentalist will "close" the event.
Date: September 9, 2004 - September 10, 2004
Location: School of Civil Engineering, Nottingham, United Kingdom

ERCOFTAC Special Interest Group 5 is organizing its next event in Nottingham on September 9th and 10th 2004 on the topic of Urban Scale CFD.

The event will be held over two days, starting at mid-day on Sept. 9th to allow European visitors to reach Nottingham by the road or via Nottingham East Midland Airport or Nottingham Train Station. It will also give us the opportunity to spend an evening together and discuss about our research and professional issues in the area of Environmental CFD.

The programme to date is as follows: Day 1, Sept. 9th: Arrive from 12:30 (Buffet), Start at 13:30

- Session 1: 13:30-15:10 – Smallest scale ‑ single building (Prof. Ian Castro)

- Session 2: 15:30-17:30 – Intermediate scale ‑ streets/groups of buildings/tunnels/airports (Dr R. Perkins)

Evening Buffet

Day 2, Sept. 10th: Arrive at 9:00, Start at 9:30

- Session 3: 9:30-11:00 – Large scale ‑ cities/forests/ABL

- Session 2: 11:15-12:30 – Experimental Perspectives (Prof. C.J. Baker)

Closure and Buffet: from 12:30

Each main session will start with a lead address (under the lead of ) which aim is to set the scene and present some of the challenges in the designated area. Four small 10-15 min. thought-provoking talks will then follow and will have for purpose to present challenging issues to the audience and launch discussions.

Nottingham University Park Campus is very pleasant and should offer beautiful and quiet surroundings to the sessions, and the opportunity to have a good time in these last summer days.

You can register your interest to the committee members right now, using the address and webpage shown in this page. Registration fees will be provided on-line shortly.
