EVENTS:   

FROM: Rob Poole and Ian Frigaard, Journal of Non-Newtonian Fluid
Mechanics Editors, 24/8/21
SUBJECT: JNNFM Complex Fluid Seminar Series (8th September onwards)
The JNNFM complex fluid seminar series will continue from the 8th
September with a series of talks to celebrate the centenary of the birth
of J G Oldroyd.  The first of these talks will be given by Prof John
Hinch (University of Cambridge) entitled "Oldroyd B, and not A?". You
need to sign up to the email list and then zoom link details are sent
~48 hours before (details on how to sign up are on webpage below plus
full schedule for September)
EVENT DATE: 8/9/21, 17:00 BST
DETAILS: https://bit.ly/3BaNO5E  

FROM: Claire Savy, University of Leeds, 18/8/21
SUBJECT: LIFD Colloquium (online), Droplet dynamics in the presence of
gas nanofilms: merging, wetting, bouncing & levitation, Professor James
Sprittles 
EVENT DATE: 6/10/21, 14:00 BST
DETAILS: https://bit.ly/3geJhaj  

FROM: Lars Davidson, Flow Sim, 12/8/21
Subject: Large Eddy Simulation (LES), hybrid LES-RANS, Detached Eddy
Simulation (DES) and unsteady RANS. LES is suitable for bluff-body flows
or flows at low Reynolds numbers. To extend LES to cover industrial
flows at high Reynolds numbers, new approaches (hybrid LES-RANS, DES,
URANS, SAS, PANS, PITM) must be used. They are all based on a mix of LES
and RANS. The course will give an introduction to LES and these new
methods. LES, or any of the new approaches, is the first step when
performing accurate CAA (Computational Aero-Acoustics) The lectures will
be given on-line (Live) using Zoom. During the workshops, the
participants will get supervision in a joint Zoom room which will enable
participants to learn from each others questions. Part of the
supervision may also be given in individual break-out Zoom rooms.
Lectures will be given in the mornings; in the afternoons there will be
workshops using Python (recommended), Matlab or Octave. The participants
must have a PC/Mac/Desktop with one of these software installed. In the
workshops, the participants will use Python/Matlab/Octave for analyzing
analyzing SGS models, SAS, PANS, DES and DDES. Scripts will be use for
generating isotropic and anistropic (non-isotropic) synthetic turbulent
fluctuations for inlet boundary conditions and embedded LES.

FROM: Andrew Hogg, University of Bristol, 23/7/21
SUBJECT: Lectureship in Applied Mathematics
TOPIC: We are seeking to appoint an outstanding applied mathematician,
in the broadest sense, that will support or complement the research
activities of the Institute for Applied Mathematics in the School of
Mathematics at the University of Bristol. Currently, the Institute has
research activity in complex materials, dynamical systems, fluid
dynamics, soft matter, and theoretical biophysics. A characteristic of
the Institute is its outward looking approach to research, indicated by
the fact that all of these areas benefit from collaboration outside the
Institute, both within the School of Mathematics, and University wide.
