Quick Overview

The fifth symposium on the doctoral research of the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics took place during the period March 10 to 12, 2014. 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 the most advanced students have proposed a presentation followed by a session of questions.

The fifth symposium on the doctoral research of the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics took place during the period March 10 to 12, 2014. 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 the most advanced students have proposed a presentation followed by a session of questions.

This event was attended by the faculty of the von Karman Institute as well as by colleagues from universities and industrial partners. The Symposium was open to external attendees free of charge. In addition to the presentations of the PhD candidates, we had the pleasure to welcome three prominent keynote lecturers who have opened each day the Symposium:

  • Richard Schwane, ESA ESTEC, The Netherlands, “Multi-disciplinary flow investigations at the European Space Agency,”
  • Gérard Bois, Laboratoire de Mécanique de Lilles 3, France, “Some research aspects on hydraulic rotating pumps,”
  • Mario Ricchiuto, INRIA Bordeaux, France, “Upwind Residual discretizations for depth averaged wave propagation.”

This year, the best presentation award has been attributed to Jorge Pinho for his research on “Experimental Study and Modeling of Two-phase Flow cavitation through Complex Valves.” We would like to congratulate him on this achievement. The illustrated cover art of these proceedings is based on his research results.

This proceedings volume contains 38 papers which are divided into the following topics: “Multiphase Flows,” “Uncertainty Quantification,” “Aero-Thermal Investigations in Turbomachinery,” “Optimization in Turbomachinery,” “Noise and Aeroacoustics,” “Numerical Approach for Hypersonic and Plasma Flows,” “Development of Advanced CFD,” “Ablation,” “Ground and Flight Experiments,” “Numerical Modeling for Aerothermodynamics.”

We would like to emphasize that this publication serves as a tool for communication and aims to enhance exchange between the doctoral candidates, the faculty and external attendees. The annual publication of their results in proceedings is of crucial importance to the VKI research providing a thorough review of the different activities within the three departments.

As such, the doctoral candidate students play a key role in strengthening the expertise in experimental research, computational methods, and physical modelling. In addition to basic research, works carried out at the von Karman Institute often leads to implementation of real life industrial applications critical to the fluid dynamics community.

We would like to thank Dr. Patrick Rambaud for having initiated this symposium and made it such a successful event.
