"PhD Course - Physics of Granular Suspensions with Applications to Geophysical Flows"

offerto gratuitamente dal Dep. of Civil, Chemical and Environmental Engineering, University of Genoa

nel periodo 1-5 July 2024

Registration page: https://forms.office.com/e/MBRekNrMMZ?origin=lprLink

Registration deadline: 31 May 2024

Course description

The course is conceived to provide PhD students with fundamental knowledge on the mechanics of granular suspensions as well as on the mathematical and numerical techniques that can be adopted to investigate geophysical flows. To this end, three formidably complex problems (sediment transport, flow-like landslide inception and gravity currents) are considered. A brief excursus into the physics of Brownian suspensions completes the course. The students will find a thorough combination of elements of fluid and solid mechanics, rheology, geotechnics, geomorphology, civil, chemical and coastal engineering. First, the dynamics of granular suspension is introduced from the mathematical viewpoint, focusing on issues that characterise geophysical flows such as turbulence, the effects of inter-particle contacts and strong velocity gradients. Then, different models that were successfully used to investigate the mechanics of granular suspension in environmental flows are presented.

Lecturer Marco Mazzuoli (marco.mazzuoli@unige.it)

Guest Lecturer Dalila Vescovi (Polytechnic University of Milan)

Topics

  •     Two-phase flow models
  •     Turbulence-particle interactions
  •     Rheology of granular suspensions
  •     Flow driven suspensions (e.g. sediment transport)
  •     Gravity driven suspensions (e.g. turbidity currents and debris flows)

Modalities

The course consists of frontal lectures (22 hours). Then, students are invited to prepare the brief presentation of a problem either dealing with their own research activity or taken from the literature, which involves granular suspensions. A “Workshop” completes the course where the presentations are individually given by the students.

Summary. Turbulence is one of the last mysteries, not yet fully understood, in nonlinear fluid mechanics (including multiphase flows). In this course, we provide an introduction to turbulence by coupling the analysis of the most used numerical models (e.g., k-epsilon model) and the interpretation of real-world measurements, with a special focus on processes occurring in the atmosphere and in stratified water bodies such as lakes. The course covers theoretical and numerical aspects of turbulence modelling and introduces the necessary statistical tools for the analysis of data from turbulence observations both in the field and in the laboratory. Theoretical aspects are supported by numerous hands-on tutorials.

Course offered for the PhD program in Civil, Chemical and Environmental Engineering Curriculum in Fluid Dynamics and Environmental Engineering - Mixing Processes in Fluids

The course initially provides the general ideas of the concept of eddy diffusivity in the realm of turbulent transport. Heuristics arguments will be accompanied to quantitative analysis mainly based on asymptotic methods. The so-called homogenization strategy, based on a formal multiple-scale expansion, will be carried out and the resulting effective equation for the pollutant concentration will be discussed and
analyzed. This effective equation has the structure of a diffusion equation with an effective diffusivity (the eddy diffusivity). Examples where the eddy diffusivity can be obtained analytically will be also discussed. Generalizations to situations where the eddy diffusivity is a field (i.e. it depends on spatial coordinates) will be considered. The course proceeds introducing the theoretical basis of absolute and relative dispersion.
The first one mainly concerns with predicting the path of a single fluid particle or the path the centroid of a cluster of particles in a turbulent flow. The statistical analysis of the absolute dispersion provides valuable information regarding the mixing regimes related to a particular turbulent flow. Relative dispersion, instead, is the analysis of the spreading of an initially close cluster of fluid particles, which is strongly
related to the turbulent flow scales involved. Several examples to real flows will be discussed during the lessons, e.g. riverine flows, atmospheric and oceanographic flows. The course ends with an introduction to the concepts of Finite Size and Time Lyapunov Exponents and Lagrangian Coherent Structures (LCS), which are becoming a reliable tool applied to the description of the main mixing processes in a real turbulent flow context.

The short course will discuss in depth the physics of shallow mixing layers and shallow mixing interfaces and of the related transport processes in both canonical configurations and in natural environments (river confluences) across a wide range of scales. The course will discuss how the structure and spatial development of the mixing interface are affected by density contrast between the incoming flows, channel bathymetry, confluence angle, bed roughness, etc. It will present the state of the art in terms of laboratory, field and numerical studies used to investigate the flow structure and dynamics of such flows. It will show the critical role played by large-scale turbulence in controlling mixing, sediment transport processes and spatial patterns of water quality and biodiversity. The course will emphasize a synergetic approach in which experimental and numerical techniques are jointly used to reveal new knowledge and explain phenomena observed at natural river confluences under a wide range of conditions and scales. A preliminary list of the main topics covered is given below. The course will also offer the participants the chance to directly interact and exchange research ideas with the lecturers.

The course is co-organized by the IIHR Fluvial Hydraulics Committee (Prof. George Constantinescu, Univ. Iowa, USA) and the IIHR Fluid Mechanics Committee (Prof. Vlad Nikora, Univ. Aberdeen, U.K.). The theoretical modeling and experimental studies module will be led by Dr. Sebastien Proust (INRAE, France). Prof. Carlo Gualtieri (Univ. Federico II Naples, Italy) will lead the module focusing on field studies of flow, mixing, sediment transport and ecological processes at river confluences. Prof. George Constantinescu will cover eddy-resolving numerical studies of confluent flows in idealized geometries and natural river confluences.

The course dates are August 31 and September 1, 2024. We anticipate about 6 hours of lecture per day with each module covered in about 4 lecture hours. There is no fee registration to attend the course provided the participant paid the conference registration fee. The participants will need to secure accommodations for the two extra days before the main conference activities start on September 2. Interested participants should contact via e-mail Prof. George Constantinescu (sconstan@engineering.uiowa.edu) and Prof. Iacopo Carnacina (i.carnacina@ljmu.ac.uk). The email should include a one-page CV and a short paragraph explaining the interest of the participant in taking the short course. We encourage the participants to contact us early. Applications will be received until August 23, 2024. For any additional questions related to the course please contact Prof. George Constantinescu.
