Course on Fluvial Hydrodynamics & Thermo-Fluids at IIT Kharagpur [Feb 4-8, 2020]: Register by Jan 15: Expired


The course would help the academicians as well as practicing managers and professionals to learn fundamentals of turbulent fluid flow, sediment transport, and thermos fluids. Exposing the participants to the practical aspects of hydraulic modeling. Building motivation amongst the participants in analyzing hydraulic engineering problems using numerical modeling techniques.

Providing exposure to practical problems of hydraulic engineering. Enhancing the capability of the participants to develop innovative approaches in hydraulic engineering. At the end of the course, participants will be quite knowledgeable about the vortex dynamics and bluff body flows.

Turbulent flow and sediment transport in rivers are interdependent and of utmost important to design and predict the fluvial processes, e.g. reservoir sedimentation, aggradations and degradations of the riverbed, scour / erosion, etc.
