Interfaces Symposium

Turbulence and Computers: Beauty and the Beast

"Interfaces", Aquitaine scientific symposium for digital sciences. This serie of talks will host several times a year, scientists from entire world, recognized for the quality of their work and the results they produce. Topics will treat about computer sciences and applied mathematics but mostly about their intersections with others sciences and fields. Medicine, Social sciences and humanities, art, etc. are such topics that are addressed.

  • Date : 10/03/2016
  • Place : Centre de Recherche Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest -- Campus de l'université de Bordeaux at 11:00am
  • Guest(s) : Gianluca Iaccarino - Mechanical Engineering Department & Institute for Computational Mathematical Engineering, Stanford University
  • Organiser(s) : Centre de Recherche Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest

For its third edition, Interfaces •  Aquitaine scientific symposium for digital sciences , welcomes :

The talk will held in English and will be followed by a drink.   

Turbulence and Computers: Beauty and the Beast

Extremely powerful computers with up to 100,000 processors have enabled unprecedented numerical simulations that are pushing the boundaries of knowledge. Join Prof. Gianluca Iaccarino as he demonstrates how he and colleagues from the Center for Turbulence Research at Stanford University are using the world’s largest computers to study fluid dynamics in interesting ways. The talk will describe several applications including creating a planet in seven days, quieting noisy jets and slowing a Formula 1 car. In this talk, Prof. Iaccarino will provide a window into intriguing physical phenomena, the challenges of extreme-scale computations and include plenty of computer graphics and art illustrating the fascinating beauty of fluid turbulence.

I am an  Associate Professor in the Mechanical Engineering and the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME) here at Stanford. I am Italian (from Sorrento, in south of Italy) and moved to Stanford in 1998. My research is in computer simulations of fluid dynamic problems with applications to energy generation, propulsion, aerodynamics. I am interested in uncertainy analysis and computational mathematics. I teach classes in fluid dynamics, numerical methods, linear algebra, uncertainty analysis... I direct the Exascale Computing Engineering Center, the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (with Margot Gerritsen), the Thermal Fluid Science Affiliates Program and the Uncertainty Quantification Laboratory I am an associate editor of the Journal of Computational Physics, the Applied Mechanics Review and Flow, Turbulence and Combustion.
