Workshop On Control of Fluids: Theory & Computation
22-27 January 2018
Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur
Flow control is one of the recent and rapidly evolving field of fluid dynamics. It implies a small change of a configuration serving an ideally large engineering benefit, like drag reduction, lift increase, mixing enhancement or noise reduction. This change may be accomplished by passive or active devices. Flow Control is increasingly incorporated in the design of engineering devices ranging from aircraft and space
vehicles to microfluidic devices. Research work in this domain aims to integrate knowledge in flow physics with theoretical advances and novel experimental capabilities and engineering devices capable of materializing advanced design concepts. In turn controlled flow phenomena exhibits a new array of physics and open frontiers for further interdisciplinary research in fluid mechanics and all the engineering domains that it affects. This course aims at introducing the mathematical theory and computational elements related to the developments on control of fluids.
Prof. Jean Pierre Raymond is currently working as Professor at Equipe MIP, Institut de Mathematiques,Universite Paul Sabatier, 31062 Toulouse, Cedex, France. His areas of specialization are Analysis and control of systems governed by partial differential equations, Optimal control, Control of fluid flows, Fluid-structure systems, Numerical approximation of optimal controls and of stabilizing controls. He has published several research papers in peer reviewed international journals. He has delivered several invited and plenary talks in international conferences across the world.
Prof B V Rathish Kumar is currently a Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at IIT Kanpur. He has made seminal contributions through the development of Numerical Methods for solving PDEs. He developed high performance computing strategies using parallel algorithms. He has designed and developed a wide spectrum of numerical solvers that employ Finite element, Finite volume and Wavelet based techniques for solving fluid dynamics, biomechanics problems of interest to both science and technology.
