From bent layers to broken waves

In honour of Professor Ian Castro's 65th birthday the Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics group, co-sponsored by CD-adapco, hosted a special workshop entitled "From bent layers to broken waves: studies in engineering and environmental fluid dynamics" on the 28-29 March 2012.

The workshop took place at the Chilworth Manor Hotel, just outside Southampton, and there were talks and presentations from colleagues who had worked with Ian over the year.  Other colleagues, friends and past students made up the rest of the 50 delegates attending the workshop. 



Presentations slides can be downloaded, where available, by clicking on the title of the talk.
