Turbulence Analysis Course
 
Hi All,

I'm looking for a short course on turbulence structure and/or analysis to help with an unexpected deviation in my PhD. Would anyone happen to know of any that will be held in the coming months in the UK?

Cheers,

Jon

in uk try asking cranfield university, they sometimes do things like those.

in germany the VKI usually offers high quality courses.

Just a quick correction: VKI is in Belgium, not Germany.

you should be able to find one in the USA too and take it online. But, I have never heard of a 'short' course in turbulence modeling - just semester courses. The problem with the semester course is that the majority of the USA schools have already started the semester. BUT, the semester is young and you might be able to get in one. I know Clemson had a class like that, but I don't know if it is offered every semester.

Schlichting's book has some good info on perturbation, and have you tried reading some journals?

?

Just out of curiosity: Aren't those distance learning classes really expensive? I took one online class once at a pretty good public university in the US, if I remember correctly, 3 credit hours were about $5000....

Cheers!

$5000 is a little expensive, but not too much. I have no idea how much a short course costs..in the USA, if you are not a full time student you pay by the hour, and it can get pricey.

Thanks for the info. Yeah, too bad, I'd like to take some classes from time to time, but can't afford it..maybe when I'm retired.
