Second International Symposium on Bifurcations and Instabilities in Fluid Dynamics

Project Details


Hydrodynamic stability is of fundamental importance in fluid dynamics and is a well-established
subject of scientific investigation that continues to attract great interest of the fluid mechanics
community. Hydrodynamic instabilities of prototypical character are, for example, the Rayleigh-
Bénard, the Taylor-Couette, the Bénard-Marangoni, the Rayleigh-Taylor, and the Kelvin-Helmholtz
instabilities. A fundamental understanding of various patterns of bifurcations such as identifying the
most dominant mechanisms responsible for the instability threshold is also required if one is to
design reliable and efficient industrial processes and applications, such as melting, mixing, crystal
growth, coating, welding, flow re-attachment over wings, and others.
The symposium aimed at bringing together scholars with mutual interest in computational,
experimental, and theoretical methods for the analysis of bifurcation and instability phenomena in
fluid dynamics.

The conference took place 15-18 August 2006 with 40 participants. Proceedings will appear as a volume in Journal of Physics: Conference Series
