19th UIT Summer School

Heat and mass transfer in turbulent flows: modeling and measurement techniques

Certosa di Pontignano, Vagliagli, 53010, Siena, Italy Monday 29 August, 2022 – Friday 2 September, 2022

Director: Prof. Alfonso Niro – Politecnico di Milano

Addressing problems of heat and mass transfer in turbulent flows is the most frequent situation for everyone concerned with process engineering problems. However, the complexity ofphenomena involved in these problems implies a multiplicity of analysis and simulation techniques, whichrequire an in-depth knowledge and specific training, but that arenotgenerally provided on graduate master courses. The 19th UIT Summer School aims at providing engineers, PhD students and post-doc researchers with the most effective theoretical, computational and experimental tools to address these problems.The Course is organized in five coordinate series of lectures intended to address questions like: what are the physical phenomena concerned with turbulence? How do turbulent flows behave? How can they be quantitatively described? Which are the computational models? Which the experimental techniques? Numerous examples from both standard and leading-edge engineering problems of fluid dynamics and heat transfer will help in enlightening and grasping both foundations and applications of this challenging subject.
