Learning goals:

Students receive very specific, in-depth knowledge from modern turbulence research and transport analysis. ? Knowledge

The students learn to classify the acquired knowledge, they study approaches to further develop the knowledge themselves and to relate different data sources to each other. ? Knowledge, skills

The students are trained in the personal competence to independently delve into and research a scientific topic. ? Independence

Matlab exercises in small groups during the lecture and guided Peer2Peer discussion rounds train communication skills in complex situations. The mixture of precise language and intuitive understanding is learnt. ? Knowledge, social competence

Required knowledge:

Fluid mechanics 1 and 2 advantageous

Programming knowledge advantageous
