16th ERCOFTAC Osborne Reynolds Day
The University of Manchester will once again be playing host to the prestigious ERCOFTAC Osborne Reynolds Day in 2018.
This one day event will take place in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering, a successor of the department in which Osborne Reynolds, over a 35-year period, established himself as the nation’s leading engineering fluid mechanicist. In his honour and name, the Osborne Reynolds Day programme will feature presentations by some of the brightest of the UK’s newly-graduated and soon-to-graduate PhDs in fluid mechanics. The day features:
- Oral and poster presentations by PhD competitors
- Keynote lectures by senior researchers in fluid mechanics
- Opportunity to view Osborne Reynolds apparatus and memorabilia
The competitions offer prestigious awards that celebrate the quality of students and graduates who have been pursuing doctoral‐level research across the broad domain of fluid mechanics including turbulence, multi‐phase, stratified and free‐surface flows, convective transport processes, combustion and acoustics. Entries are welcome from engineering, physics, mathematics, environmental sciences or any other fluids relevant disciplines. PhD students or recent graduates from all UK universities are eligible to enter.
For PhD graduands and new graduates, this provides a great opportunity for them to communicate their doctoral discoveries to the UK research community and interact with other participants on the state-of-the-art in other branches of fluid mechanics.
