PHYSMOD 2017 is hosted in Nantes by the Dynamic of Urban and Coastal Atmosphere group of the LHEEA lab, UMR CNRS 6598, at ECN. The workshop will take place in August 2017 from Wednesday 23rd noon to Friday 25th noon.
The biennial PHYSMOD workshop provides since 2001 a unique forum for experts, young scientists and students where the most recent advances in fluid modelling, the state-of-the-art in experimental work and new emerging research areas are discussed and assessed in an open-minded and friendly atmosphere. One of the main purposes is to provide a wide platform for information exchange and knowledge transfer between participants active in the physical (e.g in wind tunnels and water flumes) modelling of atmospheric flow and dispersion.
Key topics of the workshop:
flow and dispersion in the atmospheric boundary layer in urban areas
effect of roughness on transport and diffusion
boundary layer modelling for wind technology and wind energy research
test data and validation of numerical and analytical modelling tools
quality assurance and improvement of boundary layer modelling techniques
OoPs session (Obnoxious Operational ProblemS) special session devoted to experimental or operational problems and their solutions
