This workshop focuses on fundamental aspects of turbulent mixing in flows subject to destabilising acceleration in both compressible and incompressible fluids. Specific topics include (but are not limited to):

o Rayleigh-Taylor instability

o Richtmyer-Meshkov instability

o Mixing layers

o Coherent structures

o Experimental, numerical and theoretical studies

o Novel numerical and experimental techniques

o Direct numerical simulation, large-eddy simulation and turbulence models

o Relating 2D and 3D flows and models

o Applications


Centre for Mathematical Sciences

Oral and poster presentations will be given in the Centre for Mathematical Sciences (CMS; http://www.cms.cam.ac.uk/), University of Cambridge, UK. This GBP65M development, completed at the end of 2002, is the new home for the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP; http://www.damtp.cam.ac.uk/) and its sister department the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics. CMS is located alongside the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, and only a short walk to the west of the centre of the historical University city of Cambridge (http://www.cam.ac.uk/; www.cambridge.gov.uk/leisure/TICWEB/tourism.htm).


Clare College

Accommodation and meals for around 120 participants will be provided in Clare College (http://www.clare.cam.ac.uk/). Founded in 1326, Clare College is the second oldest of the 31 colleges in Cambridge, and is located on the picturesque 'backs' alongside the River Cam. (Cambridge also offers a range of hotels and other accommodation, should you wish to organise your own.)
