Program Structure

TMB-2017 consists of keynote and invited lectures by international experts, contributed talks and poster presentations by participants, and round table discussions.

Topics of Program 'Turbulent Mixing and Beyond' include

  • Turbulence and Mixing (TURB): invariant, scaling, spectral properties, scalar transports, convection
  • Wall-Bounded Flows (WALLS): structure and fundamentals, non-canonical turbulent boundary layers, supersonic and hypersonic flows, shock-turbulence interactions
  • Non-Equilibrium Processes (NON): statistically unsteady dynamics, formation of phases and multiphase dynamics, anisotropic and non-local dynamics, connection of continuous description at macro-scales to kinetic processes at micro-scales
  • Interfacial Dynamics (INT): the instabilities of Rayleigh-Taylor, Kelvin-Helmholtz, Richtmyer-Meshkov, Landau-Darrieus, Saffman-Taylor
  • High Energy Density Physics (HEDP): inertial confinement and heavy-ion fusion, Z-pinches, light-material and laser-plasma interaction, non-equilibrium heat transfer
  • Material Science (MS): material transformation at high strain rates, equation of state, impact dynamics, mixing at nano- and micro-scales
  • Astrophysics (AST): supernovae, interstellar medium, star formation, stellar interiors, early Universe, cosmic-microwave background, accretion disks
  • Magneto-hydrodynamics (MHD): magnetic fusion and magnetically confined plasmas, magneto-convection, magneto-rotational instability, dynamo
  • Plasmas (PLA): plasma physics fundamentals, space and astrophysical plasmas, ionosphere
  • Physics of Atmosphere (ATM): environmental fluid dynamics, forecasting and climate change, turbulent flows in stratified media and atmosphere
  • Geophysics and Earth Science (GEO): mantle-lithosphere tectonics, oceanography, turbulent convection under rotation, planetary interiors
  • Combustion (COMB): dynamics of flames and fires, deflagration-to-detonation transition, blast waves and explosions, reactive and super-critical fluids
  • Mathematical Aspects of Non-Equilibrium Dynamics (MATH): vortex dynamics, singularities, discontinuities, asymptotic dynamics, weak solutions, well- and ill-posedness, continuous transports out of thermodynamic equilibrium
  • Stochastic Processes and Probabilistic Description (STO): long-tail distributions and anomalous diffusion, data assimilation and processing methodologies, error estimate and uncertainty quantification, statistically unsteady processes
  • Advanced Numerical Simulations (NUM): continuous DNS/LES/RANS, Molecular dynamics, Monte-Carlo, Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics, predictive modeling, validation and verification of numerical models
  • Experiments and Experimental Diagnostics (EXP): experiments in plasmas, fluids and materials in high and low energy density regimes; laboratory experiments in fluids, plasmas and materials modeling non-equilibrium dynamics as well as space and astrophysical phenomena; novel diagnostic approaches, including probes and spectroscopic techniques in plasmas, flow visualizations and control in fluids, opto-fluidics and novel optical methods and technologies in materials
