The Spring School on Transition and Turbulence (EPTT) gathers students and researchers every two years in order to present, discuss and debate relevant topics on transition and turbulence in fluid mechanics. These topics are extensively investigated by an increasing number of researchers around the world.
In 1998, the first Transition and Turbulence Spring School (EPTT) was organized in order to encourage discussion and development of new studies of stability, transition and turbulence. The first EPTT was offered by IME and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) and took place at the Military Engineering Institute (IME) in Rio de Janeiro. Since then, it has been a scheduled event of the Brazilian Association of Engineering and Mechanical Sciences (ABCM) of great success.
The specific objectives of the EPTT were kept the same over the last 20 years. It aims to bring together professionals and students in the area to present national and international experts’ lectures on fundamental concerns in transition and turbulence. It also has the intention of providing opportunity for students, researchers and teachers to expose their recent work to the transitional and turbulent community. Furthermore, this reunion encourages the discussion and exchange of experiences, promotes the interaction between the academic community and the industrial sector, proposes research and development projects and contributes to the training of high-level human resources, preparing them for the development of fundamental and applied research.
The EPTT 2018 will take place in the city of Uberlândia-MG and it is organized by the Federal University of Uberlândia (UFU). The 11th EPTT will follow the same format from previous editions, with invited talks provided by international and national researchers and technical sections with the presentation of Brazilian and international works.
