“Material barriers to the transport of momentum and vorticity in turbulence”
Live Talk by Prof. G. Haller (ETH Zürich), on June 25th, 15-16 p.m. CET
Posted on by Federico Canepa
Nonlinear dynamics plays a crucial role in Wind Engineering and the advent of CFD now easily allows to visualize flows in a detailed and possibly intuitive manner, even in the most complex cases. Unfortunately, the intuition we can obtain from CFD data visualization is often only qualitative and the definition itself of coherent structures, often used to describe vortices, falls short under careful scrutiny. In this seminar, Prof. Haller will provide us a gentle introduction to the formulation of observer-independent definitions of coherent structures, so guiding us in a re-examination of our intuitive understanding of vortical motion and dynamics.
The talk will take place by Teams platform on Friday, June 25th, 2021, 15:00-16:00 (CEST).
