Flow instability and transition - development of measurement tools for experiments in fluid dynamics

Spontaneous flow reversals of convection rolls in a liquid metal layer under a magnetic field As part of an academic exchange between Hokkaido University (Japan) and the University of Strasbourg, four representatives of the Hokkaido University will present their research in the field of mechanics. Among them, Yuji Tasaka (Associate Professor of Laboratory for Flow Control) will present his activities in the field of flow instability and transition. Ultrasonic velocity profiling has greatly contributed to these experimental fluid dynamics studies.

The seminar will be held on March 27 at 2pm at the following address:
ICube - Department of Mechanics, Seminar Room (109)
4 rue Boussingault 67000 Strasbourg
