• Description:

    The purpose of the course is to bring together PhD-students who apply environmental fluid mechanics (CFD) as part of their PhD study into a workshop in order to create a further development of their skills and to establish a professional network in this field.

    The course will include general classroom presentations, physical experiments in the laboratory and computer exercises on the following points:

    • Flow and mixing in turbulent boundary layers
    • Degradation of stable stratifications
    • VOF – modelling  (Volume of Fluid) of free surface flows
      • Modeling of Rain Based Urban Flooding. (no laboratory exercises)

  • Prerequisites:

    Participants are expected to be familiar with basic hydraulics, hydrodynamics and CFD modelling of turbulent flows. The participants are free (and recommended) to bring with them their own CFD-software.

  • Important information concerning PhD courses 

    We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
