CFMS to host ERCOFTAC Industry Day

The Centre for Modelling & Simulation (CFMS) will be hosting the ERCOFTAC (European Research Community On Flow Turbulence and Combustion) Annual Industry Day at Bristol and Bath Science Park.

Taking place on 30th July 2015, the event will bring together the UK flow, turbulence and combustion community to consider challenges of interest to industry and academia, with the objective of identifying opportunities for collaborative innovation. The theme and topic for the event is ‘Industrial state of the art and opportunities in fluid structure interaction’, which is a critical element in the design of engineering systems, principally in structures comprising of materials that are susceptible to fatigue.

The event will provide delegates with the opportunity to hear presentations from industry users and academics including Zenotech, Arup, University of Surrey, CD-Adapco, Alstom, ANSYS, NPL and Swansea University. “This is a great opportunity for the community to gather together, share new thinking and help drive innovation and performance levels within industry” , says David Standingford, Director and Co-Founder of Zenotech.

Sam Paice, Chief Operating Officer, CFMS, commented, “ We’re delighted to be hosting the ERCOFTAC Industry Day. This is a great opportunity for industry and academia to discuss common issues and develop potential new methods together.”

The ERCOFTAC Industry Day is a free one day event, held on 30th July between 9.30am and 4.30pm. Delegates are advised to register early and can view the agenda here.

The ERCOFTAC Association promotes the joint efforts between research institutes and industry, with the objective of exchanging technical and scientific information concerning all aspects of flow, turbulence and combustion. For further information about ERCOFTAC awards and events visit:


The European Research Community On Flow, Turbulence And Combustion (ERCOFTAC) was created in 1988 with the aim of promoting joint efforts of research institutes and industries who are active in all aspects of Flow, Turbulence and Combustion. With the objective of exchanging technical and scientific information concerning basic and applied research, and the development, validation and maintenance of numerical codes and databases, ERCOFTAC membership is open to all research groups from academic and government to industrial organisations worldwide.
