The second Symposium on the doctoral research took place at the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics during the period March 1 to 3, 2011. The doctoral students have presented the progress of their research work carried out in the three departments: Aeronautics and Aerospace, Environmental and Applied Fluid Dynamics, Turbomachinery and Propulsion. The first year students have presented a poster on their research plans and some preliminary results while candidate in their 2nd and 3rd year proposed a 20 minutes presentation followed by 10 minutes questions.

This event was attended by the faculty of the von Karman Institute as well as some colleagues from other universities and/or industrial partners. The Symposium was totally open to external attendees and the entrance was free of charge. In addition to the presentations of the PhD candidates, we had the pleasure to welcome prominent keynote lecturers for the opening of each day of the Symposium:

  • Jean Muylaert director of the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics, as a keynote lecturer on “Review of past-present-future European space projects with emphasis on Critical ATD design issues”
  • Dominique Hocquellet from EADS – ASTRIUM, as an invited keynote lecturer on “Challenges in development of thermal protection systems”
  • Lorenzo Pons from TURBOMECA, as an invited keynote lecturer on “Current trends in turboengine virtual design”

For the first time this year, the honorary best presentation Prize was organised by the VKI faculty and awarded to Benoît G. Marinus for his research entitled: Towards multidisciplinary optimization of propeller blades. We would like to congratulate him for this performance. An image illustrating his research is used for the present cover.

The present proceedings volume contains 45 papers which are divided into the following topics: Transition from Laminar to Turbulent Flow, Plasma Flow, CFD and Modeling for Re-entry Flow, Flow during Industrial Hazard, Atmospheric Flow, Multiphase Flow and Heat and Mass Transfer Flow, Aeroacoustics, Flow in Turbines, Flow in Compressors, Engine Analysis and Improvements, Multidisciplinary Optimization in Turbomachinery, Static and Dynamic Stability of Re-entry Vehicle, First year Doctoral Summaries.

We would like to remind here, that this event, is aiming to communicate and to optimize the exchange between the doctoral candidates and the invited guests. The publication of their partial results through proceedings is of crucial importance for the VKI research.

As such, the doctoral candidate students of the VKI play a key role in strengthening the expertise in experimental and numerical/physical modeling of the Institute. Their research deployed at the Institute is often leading to implementation to real life industrial applications that should be strongly congratulated, recognized and acknowledged.

The present proceeding is registered under an ISBN number and may be referred to in any further publication.

We truly hope that this volume with the improved two-column format will have the attention it deserves.
