W.A.T.E.R. Summer School – Lisbon, July 18th -22nd

What is W.A.T.E.R.?

W.A.T.E.R.: Workshop on Advanced measurement Techniques and Experimental Research is a Summer School started in 2016 by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (www.vub.ac.be) and the IAHR Experimental Methods and Instrumentation Committee (EMI) (www.iahr.org). The 6th edition will be held in the Instituto Superior Técnico – Universidade de Lisboa from 18th to 22nd July 2022.

W.A.T.E.R. Summer School is focused on experimental methods applied in different hydraulics fields. It combines theoretical sessions and hands-on measurement exercises in the laboratory.

The participants will have the opportunity to perform real-time measurements of different physical variables using state of the art techniques including PIV, PTV and UVP.

The W.A.T.E.R. Summer School is a meeting point for young researchers to foster the exchange of information and cooperation, and at the same time to provide the participants with an international research environment.

Topics covered

1.Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV)

2.Large Scale PIV

3.Particle Tracking Velocimetry (PTV)

4.Laser Doppler Anemometry (LDA)

5.Acoustic Doppler Velocimetry

6. Innovative experimental techniques in fluid dynamics.

A Masterclass session will be organized where each participant will have the opportunity to present and discuss their research with peers and lecturers
