ERCOFTAC to hold Osborne Reynolds Student Award Day

The 13th ERCOFTAC (European Research Community On Flow Turbulence and Combustion) Osborne Reynolds Student Award Day is taking place at Manchester University on 7th July 2015. This prestigious award celebrates the quality of young UK researchers who are pursuing doctoral-level research across the broad domain of fluid mechanics, including combustion, acoustics, convective heat or mass transfer, turbulence, multi-phase, stratified and free surface flows.

The competition is judged by a panel of senior fluids researchers. The winner, runner-up and third-placed finalists, will receive prizes of £500, £250 and £100 and the opportunity to present at the European ERCOFTAC da Vinci Award, taking place at the Autumn Festival in Vinci, Italy.

ERCOFTAC are also holding a UK Industry Day on 30th July, and a UK Special Interest Group (SIG) event on 8th November, which will see the UK flow, turbulence and combustion community gather together to consider challenges of interest to industry and academia, where opportunities may exist for collaborative innovation. Both events will be held at The Centre for Modelling and Simulation (CFMS) at Bristol and Bath Science Park.

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.
