Recent advances in numerical simulation capability as well as in measurement techniques have enabled the generation of very large amounts of data in the field of Fluid Mechanics. It has therefore become difficult to extract synthetic or phenomenological information from these large quantities of detailed flow data and specific post-processing techniques must be applied to obtain the benefits of these superior tools.
It is the objective of this Lecture Series to present a survey of advanced processing methods and techniques that allow extracting physical characteristics of flows from sets of data that represent spatial or temporal distributions containing occasionally random aspects.
The Lecture Series is organized into four sections.
The first one will be an introductory course that will present, as a reminder, the different classes of problems encountered in fluid dynamics and will put in evidence the needs of experimental and numerical approaches.
In the second section, the nature of the data yield by numerical and experimental techniques will be analyzed in view of the intricacy of extracting the information required for the modeling of fluid dynamics problems.
The different data processing techniques such as spectral analysis, pattern recognition, Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) and wavelet analysis will be discussed in the third section.
Finally the last section will be devoted to the presentation of examples of application of the various post-processing techniques in different domains of fluid dynamics with an emphasis on the analysis of turbulent flow fields.
The Lecture Series should prove fruitful to both newcomers to post-processing and experienced researchers who will find here a useful update.
The Directors of this lecture series are Dr. Pierre Millan, ONERA Toulouse, and Prof. Michel Riethmuller, von Karman Institute.
