“Material barriers to the transport of momentum and vorticity in turbulence”

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).

If you are not an ANIV-G participant, please register by sending us a message to specifying your given and family names from an address linked to your Microsoft Teams account.

Posted on by Federico Canepa

The last book authored by Giovanni Solari “Nel Vento e nell’Ingegneria” will be presented in Genova, Villa Cambiaso, on Wednesday, September 15th 2021 at 5.45 p.m. The event will take place in person only. Reservation at and green pass are mandatory.

The e-book is available in open access here. It is possible to purchase the printed version at the Genova University Press or order it here: the proceeds will be donated to charity in favor of the Associazione Gigi Ghirotti.

“Durante i miei studi in ingegneria civile mi sono casualmente imbattuto nel vento e nei suoi effetti sulle costruzioni. Ne è scaturita una folgorazione che è diventata il tema portante della mia esistenza, dando luogo a una triade di aspetti rari: un ragazzo diventato prima ingegnere e poi professore rimanendo legato alle sue origini umili; lo studioso che ha fatto della ricerca una ragione di vita; il professionista che ha avuto il privilegio di lavorare a opere simbolo. Il libro accompagna il lettore in un viaggio nel vento e nell’ingegneria intriso di esperienze umane e professionali che hanno dato luogo a una vita incalzante, varia per interessi e conoscenze, ricca di momenti belli e pregni di tensione, generosa per i risultati ottenuti e per gli insegnamenti ricevuti.” (Prof. Giovanni Solari)
