Previous conference proceedings
The series of biennial TSFP Symposia is the principal venue for reporting and disseminating recent and ongoing research on turbulence and shear flow phenomena. Previous successful TSFP symposia were held in Santa Barbara, California (1999), Stockholm, Sweden (2001), Sendai, Japan (2003), Williamsburg, Virginia (2005), Munich, Germany (2007), Seoul, Korea (2009), Ottawa, Canada (2011) and Poitiers, France (2013). The symposium will feature invited speakers, peer-reviewed conference proceedings and poster presentations.

TSFP-9 provides the opportunity to report new discoveries and developments in the fundamental and applied research on turbulence and shear flow phenomena. Apart from traditional focal points, such as DNS, LES, turbulence closures and experiments, the organisers of TSFP-9 wish to give particular emphasis to the following topics:
Instability and transition to turbulence Advanced techniques for turbulence measurements
Modelling and simulation of complex flows Turbulence and heat/mass transfer control
Turbulence in reacting and multiphase systems Plasma and MHD turbulence
Noise generation and fluid-structure interaction Biological, biomedical and clinical flows
Environmental, geophysical and compressible turbulence

The following persons have been invited to deliver keynote lectures at TSFP-9:

  • Nicholas Hutchins, University of Melbourne, Australia
  • John Kim, UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles), USA
  • Michael Plesniak, George Washington University, USA
  • Neil Sandham, University of Southampton, UK
  • Alfredo Soldati, University of Udine, Italy
