Mid-Term Review and VKI Lecture Series

The representative of the European Commission,  an External Scientific Expert and EC Innovation Expert reviewed the progress of the project during the Mid Term Review meeting held on the 26th of October 2017 at the premises of the von Karman Institute (VKI) in Brussels.

Eurogen 2017: students presented their research at “Sensitivity and adjoint methods for optimization in flow stability problems” minisymposium.

Eleven ESR fellows participated in International conference on evolutionary and deterministic methods for design optimization and control with applications to industrial and societal problems, Eurogen 2017, Madrid, 13-15 September 2017.

  4. Julian Marcon (ESR 4): A variational approach to high- order r-adaptation
  5. Alejandro Martinez (ESR 2): Bifurcation phenomenon on supersonic blowing trailing edges
  6. Henrique Raposo (ESR 12): Compressible acoustic receptivity with random distributed roughness
  7. Fabio Naddei (ESR 7): Development of a p-adaptive discontinuous Galerkin method based on various refinement indicators
  8. Luigi Criscuolo (ESR 14): Prediction of the onset of aeroacoustic instabilities in Helmholtz resonators using a scatter matrix approach
  9. Guilayme Chauvat (ESR 15): Global stability of a jet in a cross-flow: effects of jet inflow
  10. Francesco Tocci (ESR 9): Status of surface marching 3D PSE code development
  11. Thibaut Appel (ESR 13): Global instability of 3D boundary layers with surface features
  12. Andres Rueda (ESR 1): Error estimation and mesh adaptation algorithms in p-multigrid Discontinuous Galerkin methods

Fellows attended a 2-day complementary skills session

The complementary skills session was organized by the University of Cambridge and Dr Geraint Wyn Story (@CamTrainAssoc) and took place at the Technical University of Madrid (UPM) from 11 to 12 September 2017.

The two-day session covered four essential topics: academic writing, time management, communication skills and exploring cultural differences, and presentation skills. Attendees were involved into the writing style revision, discussed the major types of “time-stealers”, practiced limited verbal communication techniques and learned new approaches to building their presentations.

Stability and Sensitivity Methods for Industrial Design Course

All ESRs attended the “Stability and Sensitivity Methods for Industrial Design Course” in ONERA, Paris, France, which lasted for three days from 19th to 21st, June 2017.

The course was organised by SSEMID Principal Investigators: Vincent Couaillier, Marta de la Llave Plata from ONERA and Charles Hirsch from NUMECA. The course included an introduction to different modelings of NS equations, with emphasis on grid generation, time integration techniques and RANS/LES approaches. The course mainly covered introduction to the main ingredient of CFD, fundamental of industrial flow problems and unsteady methods in industrial related flows.
