BBVIV7 - 7th Conference on Bluff Body Wakes and Vortex - Induced Vibrations

The series of conferences on Bluff Body Wakes and Vortex-Induced Vibrations provides a stimulating and constructive forum for researchers specializing on the problems of fixed and vibrating bluff body flows.

The present 7th Conference on Bluff Body Wakes and Vortex- Induced Vibrations (BBVIV-7) will follow the spirit set in the previous events of this series since 1998. Follow the conference web site for further information on these meetings.

Scope of the Conference

BBVIV-7 will focus on aspects of the dynamics of vortex structures found in the wakes of fixed and oscillating bluff bodies, including vortices resulting from shear layer instability, or near- and far-wake instabilities. Experimental, computational and analytical studies will be presented on topics such as the following (not exhaustive) :

  • Dynamics of long flexible cylinders
  • Energy harvesting from oscillating bluff bodies
  • Wake development behind wind turbines
  • Wakes in stratified flows
  • Vortex dynamics of swimming and propulsion
  • Bodies impinging on surfaces
  • Wake interference between multiple bodies
  • Active and passive control of wakes
  • Aspects of vortex-induced vibration of bluff bodies
  • Vortex-induced vibrations at very high Reynolds numbers
  • Vortex-induced noise due to bluff bodies
  • Rising and falling bodies in a fluid
  • Controlled vibration of bluff bodies
  • Vehicle aerodynamics
  • Aerodynamics of airfoils at large angles of attack
  • The 3-D structure of wakes from nominally two-dimensional bluff bodies
  • Mode changes in the wakes of circular cylinders
  • Bodies in unsteady/oscillatory flows
  • Wakes in shallow water flows
  • Relation between wake structure and the force experienced by a bluff body
