ICNMM — ASME 2020 18th International Conference for International Conference on Nanochannels, Microchannels and Minichannels
12 Jun 2020 - 15 Jun 2020 • Orlando, FL, United States
Organizer:
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)
Abstract:
This year the conference is collocated with the ASME’s Fluids Engineering Division Summer Meeting (FEDSM) and the Summer Heat Transfer Conference (SHT). The conference is intended to provide a platform for researchers to exchange information and identify research needs in this emerging area encompassing many engineering, basic sciences, and bio-medical disciplines. Both fundamental aspects including transport studies at the nano, micro, and mini scales as well as practical applications including thermal management, energy conversion, lab on a chip, fuel cells, micro-heat exchangers, and biomedical devices will be covered. We’ve implemented “Lightning Talks” for Poster Presenters, and we will have many jointly shared tracks and sessions with the Heat Transfer Division and Fluids Engineering Division.

Is There a Common Thread to Layering in Atmospheres, Oceans and Plasmas?
05 Jan 2021 - 08 Jan 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
A fascinating and surprising phenomenon that can occur in fluid and plasma turbulence is the spontaneous formation of arrays of layers in which material properties such as density adopt a so-called “staircase” structure. The most striking examples are potential vorticity staircases in planetary atmospheres, and thermohaline staircases in the oceans. Theoretical considerations suggest that layering also plays an important role in stellar interiors (particularly through various double-diffusive processes) and in fusion confinement devices (the so-called E x B staircase). Understanding the phenomenon of layering is, therefore, not only of intrinsic scientific interest (e.g., is there a common thread to layering in these very different contexts?), but is also crucial for an accurate description of turbulent transport in, for example, models of large-scale ocean flow, the evolution of stellar interiors and confinement in tokamaks.

Introductory Workshop: Mathematical problems in fluid dynamics
25 Jan 2021 - 29 Jan 2021 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
The workshop will address topics in the PDE analysis of the basic equations of the incompressible fluid dynamics (the Euler equations for inviscid flows, the Navier Stokes equations for viscous flows), interface problems (water waves), and other related equations. Open problems and connections to related branches of mathematics will be discussed, including the phenomena of turbulence and the zero viscosity limit. Both theoretical and numerical aspects of these topics will be considered. There will be some colloquium style lectures as well as shorter research talks. The workshop is open to all.

Recent Developments in Fluid Dynamics
12 Apr 2021 - 23 Apr 2021 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
The aim of the workshop is to bring together a broad array of researchers working on incompressible fluid dynamics. Some of the key topics to be covered are Euler flows, Navier Stokes equations as well as water wave flows and associated model equations. Some emphasis will also be placed on numerical analysis of the above evolutions.
