(from Alban Potherat, Coventry, UK)

 

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce an Electro- and Magnetohydrodynamics Thematic Session for ICTAM 2020 (FM18).

Milano will be hosting the 25th International Congress of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (25th ICTAM) from 23 to 28 August 2020. This edition will follow the 24th ICTAM held in Montreal in August 2016. ICTAM congresses are organized under the auspices of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM) and gather every four years the mechanics community from around the world.

Confirmed invited speakers:

  • Dr Frank STEFANI, Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (Germany)
  • Prof. Pedro Ángel VAZQUEZ GONZALEZ, Universidad de Sevilla (Spain)
  • Prof. Greg SHEARD, Monash University (Australia)

The essential information about  ICTAM can be found in the attached flyer, and further details at https://www.ictam2020.org/

Abstract submission begins on 1st – October – 2019, until  January 10th 2019

The congress is organized in thematic sessions, of which them being Electro- and Magnetohydrodynamics (FM18). This session is also a unique opportunity to bring together the EHD and MHD communities, in order to highlight all the scientific ingredients common to these scientific disciplines.

We are welcoming submissions on such topics as

  • liquid metal MHD, both fundamental and applied to industrial problems
  • astro- and geophysical MHD, including planetary interiors, convection and dynamo problems
  • numerical and experimental methods in MHDs,
  • electrohydrodynamic flows in liquids,

II.   ICTAM 2020: Session on Turbulence (FM15) (deadline 10-01-2020)

 (from Martin Oberlack, Germany:  ictam2020@fdy.tu-darmstadt.de)

 

Dear Colleagues,

The 25th International Congress of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (ICTAM2020) will be held in Milan, Italy, August 23-28, 2020. We have been asked to co-chair and organize the Thematic Session FM15 Turbulence.

For this we are pleased to invite you to submit an abstract to the aforementioned Session. An extended abstract has to be uploaded here: https://www.ictam2020.org/abstract-submission.

We are already seeing a very interesting group of internationally renowned speakers, so we expect a very exciting session.

The closing date for extended abstract submission is January 10, 2020. We highly recommend uploading the extended abstracts way before the closing date to avoid a final rush and overload of the website.

We are very much looking forward to meeting you in Milano.

Wishing you happy holidays and a successful new year

Martin Oberlack (TU Darmstadt / Germany) and Peter Frick (Perm State University / Russia)

Research Associate/Postdoc at HZDR (Dresden)

A member of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers, the HZDR employs about 1,200 people. The Center’s focus is on interdisciplinary research in the areas energy, health and matter.

The Institute of Fluid Dynamics is conducting basic and applied research in the fields of thermo-fluid dynamics and magnetohydrodynamics in order to improve the sustainability, the energy efficiency and the safety of industrial processes.

As part of the Institute, the Department of Magnetohydrodynamics, invites applications as Research Associate/Postdoc (m/f/d).

The position will be available from 1st January 2020. The employment contract is limited to three years.

Tasks:

The appearance of thermal superstructures in turbulent convection within very low Prandtl number fluids will be investigated experimentally in a large aspect ratio domain. The experiments will be conducted using the liquid metal Gallium-Indium-Tin (GaInSn) that has a Prandtl number of 𝑃𝑟 ≈ 0.03. Combined temperature and velocity measurements will provide detailed information about turbulent, convective superstructures and their dynamics. A novel Ultrasound-Doppler-Array technique will be used to measure for the first time two dimensional velocity vector fields of the superstructures in a turbulent liquid metal convection.

The project includes the following tasks:

  • preparation and operation of a Rayleigh-Bénard convection cell for liquid metal
  • measurements of global transport laws for heat and momentum
  • simultaneous measurements of flow velocity using ultrasound Doppler velocimetry and temperature distribution using thermocouples
  • investigation of the three-dimensional flow structure and dynamics of turbulent superstructures
  • comparison of the results to direct numerical simulations (carried out by project partners)

Requirements:

  • completed doctorate in physics, mechanical engineering or comparable qualification
  • a strong technical and physical understanding is mandatory
  • background knowledge on thermal convection would be advantageous

We offer:

  • high scientific professional networking as well as scientific excellence
  • internationality and diversity
  • interesting and diverse tasks, flexible working hours, salary based on the collective agreement TVöD-Bund
  • equality of opportunity and family-friendly structures, corporate health management
  • attractive work and research terms in a highly motivated team

Kindly submit your completed application (including cover letter, CV, diplomas/transcripts, etc.) only via our Online-application-system.
