Turbulent Mixing and Beyond

International Conference

18- 26 August 2007

The Abdus Salam International Centre for

Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy


Objectives of the Conference

  • to expose the generic problem of
  • Turbulence and Turbulent Mixing in Unsteady Flows
  • to a wide scientific community
  • to promote the development of new ideas in tackling
  • the fundamental aspects of the problem
  • to assist in application of novel approaches in a
  • broad range of phenomena,
  • where the turbulent processes occur,
  • to have a potential impact on technology.

Building the Bridges

  • The Conference provides the opportunity
  • to bring together scientists from many different areas
  • high energy density physics, plasmas
  • fluid dynamics, turbulence, combustion, material science
  • geophysics, astrophysics
  • optics and telecommunications
  • applied mathematics, probability and statistics
  • to have our attention focused on the
  • long-standing formidable task and on a
  • “connection to reality.”

Unsteady Turbulent Processes

  • plays a key role in a wide variety of phenomena
  • ranging from astrophysical to micro-scales
  • under high or low energy density conditions
  • inertial confinement, heavy-ion and magnetic fusion
  • light-matter interaction and non-equilibrium heat transfer
  • properties of materials under high strain rates
  • shocks, explosions, blast waves
  • supernovae and accretion disks, early Universe
  • stellar non-Boussinesq and magneto-convection
  • planetary interiors and mantle-lithosphere tectonics
  • premixed and non-premixed combustion
  • oceanography, atmospheric flows
  • unsteady boundary layers, hypersonic and supersonic flows
  • cutting-edge technology
  • laser micro-machining
  • free-space optical telecommunications
  • industrial applications in aeronautics and aerodynamics

Generic problem

  • Predictive modeling and reliable quantification of the turbulent processes
  • in unsteady multiphase flows are highly formidable tasks.
  • Their theoretical description is one of the most challenging problems in hydrodynamics, whose complexity
  • expands the horizons of the modern theory of differential equations
  • encourages the development of perturbative, integral and stochastic approaches for their solution
  • enforces the large-scale computations
  • calls for overall improvement of the numerical methods.
  • On the experimental side, the unsteady turbulent processes
  • are extremely hard to systematically study
  • in a well-controlled laboratory environment.
  • Their extreme sensitivity and transient character of the dynamics
  • impose high requirements on the accuracy and spatio-temporal resolution
  • of the measurements as well as data rate acquisition,
  • recur as a primary concern the influence of an observer on
  • the observation results and data interpretation.

Turbulent Mixing and Beyond

  • Conference features
  • wide scope
  • focus on hard problems
  • high quality of presentations
  • Conference is structured
  • to encourage participants’ communications
  • with experts from different fields
  • to promote the exchange of ideas
    • and suggestion of open problems
  • to promote the discussions of rigorous mathematical issues,
  • theoretical approaches and
  • state-of-the-art numerical simulations
  • along with advanced experimental techniques and
  • technological applications.

Conference Structure

  • Our Program covers a broad variety of Themes and consists of
  • invited lectures (40 minutes)
  • contributed talks (30 minutes)
  • tutorials (1 hour)
  • posters
  • round tables
  • Tutorials: novel experimental methods and computational approaches
  • Round Tables: informal discussions, open problems
  • formulation of quantitative requirements for
  • estimates of information capacity of data set, and for
  • “setting of criteria for standards”
  • which can be referenced in the future research.

Start: Sat, 18 August 2007

Finish: Sunday, 26 August 2007

Welcome to the TMBW-07

Our hope that the TMBW-07

will serve to advance the state-of-the-art in understanding

of fundamental physical properties of

turbulent mixing and turbulence in unsteady flows and

will potentially have an impact on predictive modeling capabilities,

physical description and, ultimately,

control of the complex turbulent processes.

Success of the TMBW consists from the successful work of all of us.

You are encouraged to highlight the strongest parts of your contributions.


Dear Snezhana!

I wish successes to you, to member of Organizing Committee and

to all participants of "Turbulent Mixing and Beyond Workshop"

in work of this new conference! II hope, that this conference will be a

new impulse for development of hydrodynamic instabilities researches.

Sincerely yours, Evgeny Meshkov
