When: 25th - 27th September 2017

Where: Kolektor Turboinštitut, Rovšnikova 7, Ljubljana


Kolektor Turboinštitut and Dept. of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Trieste are pleased to share their knowledge and expertise, gained in the Marie-Curie European project ACCUSIM, about the application of:

  • Advanced (scale-resolving) turbulence models,
  • OpenFOAM,
  • Cavitation modelling,
  • Design optimization.

The main topics will be discussed in practical cases for hydraulic turbines and marine propellers.

Students and young engineers are most welcome.

The participation to the summer school is free (no fee required).
The number of participants is limited.
