Recent advances in numerical simulation capabilities as well as in measurement techniques have enabled the generation of very large amounts of data in the field of fluid mechanics. It has therefore become difficult to extract synthetic or phenomenological information from these large quantities of detailed flow data and specific post-processing techniques must be applied to obtain the benefits of these superior tools. It is the objective of this Lecture Series to present and discuss advanced processing methods and techniques that allow extracting physical characteristics of flows from sets of data that represent spatial and temporal distributions containing occasionally random aspects.

The Lecture Series covers fundamental aspects of turbulence analysis including sampling aspects, spectral analysis, the processing of correlated datasets and the extraction of coherent structures, with a specific emphasis on the analysis of massive datasets such as generated by time-resolved LES- or DNS-like simulations and advanced volume experimental techniques, e.g. tomographic PIV. The course also depicts the most modern implementations of techniques having already proved their usefulness and efficiency, such as Proper Orthogonal Decomposition, wavelet analysis, Linear Stochastic Estimation, and Dynamic Mode Decomposition. As a contribution from the European project AFDAR dedicated to advanced PIV developments and analysis, lectures are specifically dedicated to the post-processing of time-resolved tomographic PIV and to the reconstruction of pressure fields from PIV datasets, opening new perspectives in fields such as aeroacoustics. In the same field, the mechanisms associating coherent structure dynamics with noise production is explored by means of dedicated developments of the Proper Orthogonal Decomposition technique. In the important field of turbomachinery (and generally for applications showing some degree of periodicity), a lecture is dedicated to the detailed analysis of uncertainties associated with phase-locked averaging, with the aim of permitting quantitative cross-validation of experimental and numerical data. Finally, a lecture is dedicated to practical issues that arise when dealing with very large simulations (with mesh sizes reaching several billions of dofs).

Some developments and results presented in this Lecture Series have been obtained within the framework of the EC-funded FP7 project AFDAR (Grant Agreement no 265695), which support is hereby gratefully acknowledged.

Part of the research leading to these proceedings has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) in the framework of the project AFDAR (grant agreement n° 265695)
