CUFS 2024

Cambridge Unsteady Flow Symposium

4-5 March, 2024, Murray Edwards College, Cambridge, UK

A symposium will be held on 4-5th March 2024 at the University of Cambridge. The symposium will bring together internationally leading experts in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and promote discussions on numerical methods for unsteady flows.

Topics of the Symposium 

The symposium will cover a wide range of topics related to CFD, including, but not limited to, large-eddy simulations, unsteady flows in aerospace, high order methods, and mesh generation.

Call for Papers

Speakers at the symposium will be asked to submit short papers of up to 10 pages in length, which will be peer reviewed and published in the conference proceedings. Details can be found on the papers page.

Location: Murray Edwards College, Cambridge, CB3 0DF, UK

Date: 4-5th March 2024

Cost: To be confirmed

Keynote Speakers

We are delighted that we will be joined by four keynote speakers, covering a range of topics. These will be:

Honoring Prof. Paul Tucker on the occasion of his 60th birthday

Short Bio of Prof. Paul Tucker: Paul Tucker is the Rank Professor of Engineering at the University of Cambridge. He completed a Royal Society Industry Fellowship to support working at Rolls-Royce (40% of his time for 4 years) and this work continued for over a decade. A key element of his Fellowship was developing a Large Eddy Simulation (LES) capability. He has written around 500 journal papers, conference papers, and technical reports. The vast majority of his research has been in the area of turbulence. Paul has been a visiting researcher at NASA Langley and Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Seattle and has worked with Airbus. He has recently written two books – see Tucker (2013,2016) - and a Royal Society Theme Issue (see Tucker and DeBonis (2014)). The latter largely explores the future use of LES in industry. Paul Tucker is an Associate Fellow of the AIAA. He is also an associate editor for the AIAA Journal – the world’s leading aerospace journal. He has been a guest Editor for Phil. Trans Royal Society three times. His most recent award was from the ASME, in 2013, for a best paper on turbomachinery LES work exploring complex transition mechanisms. He has extensive experience of high performance computing.
