Conference on Classical and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics:

Modeling, Reduction and Simulation

Department of Mathematics, Virginia Tech, June 26-28, 2017

Main Theme

This conference will bring together applied mathematicians at various stages of their careers as well as leading engineers and geophysicists. The goal is to exchange experiences and ideas necessary for the development of novel strategies to tackle challenging turbulent flows arising in engineering and geophysical fluid dynamics. These strategies will include effective analytic and data-driven dimension reduction that is essential for the mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of these turbulent flows.

A partial list of topics that we intend to cover at the conference includes: modeling of turbulent flows in climate and engineering applications, state-of-the-art reduced order modeling techniques and stochastic parameterization techniques, the associated numerical implementations and usage in different contexts such as flow control, instabilities, bifurcation analysis and transition to turbulence, predictability and prediction, and uncertainty quantification.


The conference will be held from 26-28 June 2017 at the Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center, which is located on Virginia Tech's campus in Blacksburg, VA.
