EUROMECH Colloquium 540 - Advanced Modelling of Wave Propagation in Solids

Conference - Prague, October 1-3, 2012

The EUROMECH Colloquium 540 aims to bring together engineers and scientists with interest in modelling of wave propagation in solids. The Colloquium will concentrate on topics related to effects of linear and non-linear waves in solids, to solitary waves, to strongly dispersive wave propagation in inhomogeneous solids and to waves in materials with microstructures, etc.  »»»

Liquid water: a state between two critical points

Lecture - prof. Mikhail A. Anisimov, Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering and Institute for Physical Science & Technology, University of Maryland, Institute of Thermomechanics AS CR, v. v. i., Dolejškova 5, Prague, director's meeting room (1st floor), May 30, 2012 (Wednesday),10:00-11:00

Přednáška se bude týkat termodynamických a strukturních vlastností kapalné vody, zejména v metastabilním podchlazeném stavu, a vysvětlení anomálií vody na základě hypotézy druhého kritického bodu.

A critical Reynolds number for global instability of rotating disc flow

Lecture - Prof. Jonathan Healey, Keele University, Anglie, Institute of Thermomechanics AS CR, v. v. i., Dolejškova 5, Prague, director's meeting room (1st floor), May 15, 2012 (Tuesday),10:00-11:00

The flow set up by rotating a disc at constant angular velocity about its axis, in otherwise still fluid, is a classical problem in fluid mechanics. The resulting three-dimensional boundary layer is a useful model for the flow over swept wings and turbine blades.  »»»

Non-Homogeneous Fluids and Flows - Summer School and Workshop

Conference - Prague, August 27-31, 2012
The aim of the summer school is to present a comprehensive series of lectures on various aspects of non-homogeneous fluids and flows. The emphasize will be on mathematical, computational and experimental topics originating in environmental applications. The summer course is prepared for graduate students, young scientists, and other interested specialists. Besides of the course lectures, the program will include a one day workshop (on Wednesday, August 29) dedicated to short, more advanced lectures given by attending scientists.
