We invite researchers from academia and industry to share their research interests on the prediction and control of detached flows. Separated flows have a direct impact on aerodynamic forces and have been, typically, difficult to predict though numerical tools due to the flow complexity involved (e.g. prediction of separation point, resolution of recirculation regions, turbulent modelling). imagen1

Recent developments in numerical methods for flow computations, flow stability and noise predictions, are prone to provide new physical insight into separated flows. In particular, high order numerical methods (e.g. h/p spectral or Discontinuous Galerkin)imagen3 that minimise numerical errors can provide more accurate predictions. In addition, flow stability studies and adjoint methods may give better insight into the flow mechanisms triggering flow separation and help on the design of control devices.

Finally, numerical advances in noise prediction techniques are key elements to understand the mechanisms underlying aeroacoustic noise under separated regimes. The combination of the above techniques is expected to reduce engineering design loops and cost associated to new developments. 

This International workshop is organised under the framework of the ANADE (2012-2015) project: Advances in Numerical and Analytical tools for DEtached flow prediction. ANADE is an Initial Training Network (ITN) project funded under the European Commission' Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) within the People work programme (Marie Curie actions).

The various topics covered by this conference include:

● High order methods for complex flow physics simulation (h/p Spectral, Discontinuous Galerkin, Flux reconstruction, etc.)
● Global instability and (e.g. Biglobal, Triglobal, Snapshot based techniques: Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD), Dynamic Mode Decomposition (DMD), etc.)
● Laminar turbulent transition and modelling
● Turbulence modelling for detached flows (e.g. URANS, LES, DES)
● Receptivity and sensitivity analyses (e.g. Adjoint based techniques)
● Uncertainty quantification
● Adaptive algorithms and mesh adaption techniques
● Coupling of noise generation and propagation (Computational Aeroacoustics (CAA))


  • Registration fee is 250€, including  lunches and coffee breaks
