Challenging Turbulent Lagrangian Dynamics

1-4 September 2005 Castel Gandolfo, Roma, Italy


The aim of the workshop is to bring into contact scientists from mathematics, theoretical and experimental physics, engineering and geophysics all working with different perspectives on Lagrangian Transport in Turbulent Flows. Bridging ideas from one field to the other, we intend to stimulate new interdisciplinary approaches to this rich and challenging subject. Indeed there is an urgent need to clarify both fundamental aspects of physical phenomena and their modelization.

The purpose of this workshop is to give an important contribution in the comprehension of Lagrangian dynamics, improve our knowledge on modelization, and apply this knowledge to practical problems.

Partecipation is under invitation only.

The workshop is intended to be focused on the following issues:
  1. Multi-particle behavior of passive tracers in ideal and non-ideal turbulent flows
  2. Single and collective behavior of inertial particles in laminar and in turbulent flows
  3. Two phase flows
  4. Scientific visualization
