  • Séminaire PMMH - Frederic Dias - University College Dublin
    Vendredi 7 juin de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Le projet HIGHWAVE sur le déferlement des vagues et sa station de mesure et d'observation en Irlande
    Situé aux frontières de l'ingénierie côtière et océanique, de la science du systeme Terre, des statistiques et de la mécanique des fluides, le projet HIGHWAVE propose une approche interdisciplinaire pour mieux comprendre le déferlement des vagues. Le but ultime du projet est de fournir un nouveau modèle de vagues capable (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - François Petrelis (ENS)
    Vendredi 31 mai de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Earthquake statistical properties : an explanation for the distribution of magnitude and for the existence of aftershocks
    Earthquakes in nature follow several statistical properties. In particular, the distribution of energy released by an earthquake (Gutenberg-Richter's law) and the frequency of aftershocks after a large event (Omori's law) are both power-laws. By studying several earthquake models, we have shown that the (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Etienne Jambon-Puillet, LadhyX
    Vendredi 24 mai de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Pendant drops on the underside of wet surfaces : growth, motion and solidification
    Pendant drops spontaneously appear on the underside of wet surfaces through the Rayleigh-Taylor instability. Due to their detrimental effect on coatings and their tendency to drip, several strategies have been developed to avoid their formation and rationalized with linear stability analysis. I will first briefly (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Louis-Alexandre Couston (ENS Lyon)
    Vendredi 17 mai de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    What we know and don't know about the ocean circulation and ice melting around Antarctica
    The Antarctic ice sheet is losing mass increasingly rapidly and could contribute several tens of centimetres of sea-level rise by 2100. In this presentation I will review our understanding of the southern ocean circulation, which (we know) is controlling ice melting around Antarctica and driving the retreat of the (...)

    Vendredi 3 mai de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Getting smarter overnight : how automated experiments help unwind unsteady vortex-dominated flows
    Abstract : Typical unsteady vortex-dominated flows like those involved in bio-inspired propulsion, unsteady airfoil separation, and vortex-induced vibrations can be prohibitively expensive to simulate and impossible to measure comprehensively. They are inherently non-linear, often involve moving boundaries, (...)

    Interactions between submerged aquatic vegetation and flow : applications of ecohydraulics and biomechanics to ecological questions
    Interactions between submerged aquatic vegetation and flow in rivers and streams are complex. Flowing water induces hydrodynamic stress on aquatic plants colonizing these habitats, which can, in some cases, cause mechanical failures such as breakage and uprooting. Additionally, aquatic plant beds have a (...)

Information for the speakers

The audience is composed of people with rather heterogeneous backgrounds including specialists in solids, fluids, granular flows, statistical physics... so the idea is to keep your talk understandable by people not necessarily working in your field... The seminar time slot runs from 11am to noon so the best is to make the talk last around 45 minutes to leave some time for discussion.
