Experimental Techniques in Fluid Mechanics

Organized by:
Michel Versluis
Chao Sun

JMBC PhD Course

This course for JMBC PhD students gives a general overview of concepts of experimental methods for flow, pressure, concentration and temperature measurements. The course will discuss various classic techniques (thermocouples, Pitot-tubes, hot-wire anemometry) and optical techniques such as shadow and Schlieren. The course will also focus on modern non-intrusive laser techniques (Laser Doppler and Phase Doppler Anemometry, Particle Imaging and Particle Tracking Velocimetry and Laser-induced Fluorescence). We will discuss methods for flow visualization and high-speed imaging and we have special presentations on experimental methods used in two-phase flows and in rheology. The course includes labtours and 'hands-on' demonstrations.

The Physics of Granular Matter

Organized by:
Detlef Lohse
Jacco Snoeijer
Stefan Luding

JMBC PhD Course

Granular matter can be considered as the fourth state of matter: depending on the situation, granular matter can behave as a solid, a liquid, or a gas: when dry sand is poured, it acts as a fluid. The pile on which it is poured is solid-like, stabilized by forces in between the sand beeds. When dry sand is strongly shaken or fluidized through a gas stream, it behaves gas-like. It is the dissipative nature of the interparticle interactions of granular matter which makes it behave so differently from ordinary matter. What makes the field so appealing is that many questions not only exemplify emerging concepts from modern physics, but also pose new basic questions: granular materials are heterogeneous and hysteretic, and can show jamming or transitions to glassy states. They are characterized by large fluctuations and form structures (such as shear bands) on scales comparable to the grain scale. Granular dynamics displays inherently dynamical phase transitions, complexity, and pattern formation; it is dissipative and far from equilibrium, highly nonlinear and nonlocal in time. But granular matter is also important from a more applied point of view: more than half of all goods processed worldwide is granular matter, such as coal, sand, gravel, grain, potatoes, or pills. The economic potential of granular matter is enormous: it has been estimated that no less than 40 percent of the capacity of the industries that process granular matter is wasted due to problems connected to the handling of these materials. Typical questions are connected with grain silos and their stability, waste processing, dike construction, sand transport in rivers and tidal zones, fluidized beds, heterogene catalyse, particle characterization, or pill processing in the pharmaceutical industry.The aim of the school is to give an introduction to the physics granular matter.
