20th UIT Summer School
Multiscale modelling in thermal fluid dynamics: theory and applications

Certosa di Pontignano, Castelnuovo Berardenga 53019, Siena, 2-6 September 2024Director: Prof. Pietro Asinari, Politecnico di Torino

In the dynamic landscape of engineering and scientific research, multiscale modelling has emerged as an indispensable tool for mastering thermal and fluid dynamics phenomena across varying length and time scales. The 20th UIT Summer School aims at providing engineers, PhD students and post-doc researchers with the most effective tools to address multiscale modelling in thermal fluid dynamics. The initiative aims to demystify multiscale techniques for those unfamiliar, recognizing untapped potential in various fields. Encompassing micro to macro scales, the program covers topics such as microstructure thermodynamics, transport phenomena in advanced materials, and applications of nanofluids. Lectures provide insights into practical applications and theoretical foundations, fostering a deeper understanding of heat and mass transfer across scales. Essential mathematical concepts like model reduction, coarse-graining, and machine learning techniques are also covered. By combining theory and hands-on experience, the Summer School seeks to equip participants with the skills necessary to navigate the intricate landscape of multiscale modelling, offering a unique opportunity for growth and discovery in engineering.
