15/10/2019 – I. Zuriguel – Clogging in bottlenecks

When a group of discrete bodies pass through a narrowing, the flow might become intermittent due to the development of clogs that obstruct the constriction. Despite the importance of clogging…

04/10/2019 – J. Bush – Hydrodynamic quantum analogs: droplets walking on the impossible pilot wave

Yves Couder and Emmanuel Fort discovered that droplets walking on a vibrating fluid bath exhibit several features previously thought to be exclusive to the microscopic, quantum realm…

02/10/2019 – F. Liu – Overview of Recent and Ongoing Research of Black Carbon at NRC

Black carbon (BC) emitted from combustion systems have drawn increasing attention from researchers to regulating bodies due to its strong impact on human health and climate. However,…

20/09/2019 – P. Bourrianne – Colloids and liquids from suspensions to superhydrophobicity

Colloidal suspensions are ubiquitous in our daily life. Micrometric particles dispersed in a solvent are indeed present in common liquids such as…

06/09/2019 – R. Jeanneret – Hydrodynamics of motile and sinking microorganisms

In this talk I will present the results of two independent projects regarding the physics of phytoplankton. The first project deals with a very large…

02/09/2019 – G. Fuller – Evaporation-induced stabilization of non-aqueous foams

Séminaire exceptionnel – 2 sept. 2019 – 11h salle 252 AEvaporation-induced stabilization of non-aqueous foams Gerry Fuller – Stanford Univ, ÉU

04/07/2019 – M. Merkel – A minimal-length approach unifies rigidity in under-constrained materials

What do a guitar string and a balloon have in common? They are both floppy unless rigidified by geometric incompatibility. The same kind of rigidity transition…

24/06/2019 – S. Apte – Direct Numerical Simulation of Pore-Scale Turbulence: Multiscale Statistics and Upscaling

Turbulent flows in porous media occur in a wide variety of applications, from catalysis in packed beds to heat exchange in nuclear reactor vessels…

14/06/2019 – G. Richard – Une nouvelle approche pour la modélisation des vagues côtières

La présentation portera sur un nouveau modèle de vagues côtières dérivé en moyennant sur la profondeur les équations de la simulation des grandes structures de la turbulence…

17/05/19 – M. Modest – Models for Radiative Heat Transfer and Radiation–Turbulence Interactions in Combustion Systems

Predicting radiative transfer rates in high-temperature reacting flows is an extremely difficult task, because the radiative transfer equation (RTE) is a six-dimensional integro-differential equation…
