2018 Summer School: Topics in Turbulence

The Burgers Program at the University of Maryland, in collaboration with the Center for Environmental and Applied Fluid Dynamics at Johns Hopkins University, is organizing a Turbulence Summer School during June 4-8, 2018. This Summer School is aimed at graduate students and will feature lectures from several distinguished speakers as well as hands-on tutorials focused on analyzing DNS data.

Funds are available to cover travel and accommodations for selected participants. Please encourage anyone you think would benefit from this Summer School to apply. Detailed information and instructions.

Our Mission...

Inspired by the intellectual heritage of J. M. Burgers, the mission of the Burgers Program is to enhance the quality and international visibility of fluid dynamics research and educational programs at the University of Maryland with the help of an endowed Burgers Fund. Fluid dynamics in this context is viewed to include a broad range of dynamics, from nanoscales to geophysical scales, in simple and complex fluids.

Examples of Burgers Program Activities...

  1. Providing an environment and precedence for knowledge exchange and networking within the fluid dynamics community on the University of Maryland campus.
  2. Maintaining a close collaboration with the J. M. Burgers Centre in The Netherlands.
  3. Creating and building a Burgers Fund.

The Burgers Program is supported by faculty from the College of Computer, Mathematical and Natural Sciences and the A. J. Clark School of Engineering.
