The 16th International Workshop on the Physics of Compressible Turbulent Mixing (IWPCTM) will be held 15-20 July 2018 at Marseille, France, and is hosted by Aix-Marseille University and CNRS.

The IWPCTM workshops have been held approximately biennially since 1988, and bring together researchers from universities and research laboratories around the world to discuss the state-of-the-art in theory, modeling, experiment and simulation of compressible and variable-density turbulent mixing induced by hydrodynamic instabilities in multi-material hydrodynamic flows.

It will include both oral and poster presentations, together with informal round table discussion sessions.

Topics:

This workshop focuses on both fundamental and applied aspects of turbulent mixing, and includes :

  • Rayleigh-Taylor instability
  • Richtmyer-Meshkov instability
  • Kelvin-Helmholtz instability
  • Combined instabilities
  • Compressible and variable-density mixing layers
  • High speed mixing in Scramjets
  • Entrainment and mixing in sheared interface flows
  • Experimental, numerical and theoretical studies
  • Numerical, experimental, analytical and semi-analytical techniques
  • Direct numerical simulation (DNS), large-eddy simulation (LES) and Reynolds-averaged turbulence modeling
  • Applications including inertial confinement fusion (ICF), astrophysics, high-energy density physics, scramjets, and materials science

Venue

The conference will take place o Hôtel Intercontinental Marseille – Hôtel Dieu, downtown Marseilles (see map here). We have arranged special rates at the Hôtel Intercontinental Marseille – Hotel website

The city of Marseilles offers a variety of historical, scenic, and sporting sites that you will be able to enjoy very probably under sunny skies.
