The 19th International Couette-Taylor Workshop from 22 to 24 June 2015 at the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christoph Egbers has managed to bring the 19th International Couette-Taylor workshop to the university in Cottbus – a conference getting together over 100 scientists from Europe, America, Asia, Africa and Australia.
This will be the third time in 36 years that the meeting will take place in Germany. In 1999 it was hosted by the University of Bremen and in 1985 it was held in Karlsruhe.
The aim of the international conference is the interdisciplinary exchange of experts in the field of rotating and stratified flows and their applications in geophysics and astrophysics, as well as in turbulence research.
Prof. Egbers explained the focus of this year's conference: "The description of turbulent flows continues to be a major challenge in the engineering sciences and in classical physics. It is the basis for our understanding of trends as they occur, for example, in aircraft cabins, large concert halls, but also in the atmosphere."
About the Couette-Taylor Workshop
The first Couette-Taylor workshop was held in Leeds (England) on 27 and 28 March 1979. The workshop was then held every two years, alternately in Europe and the US.
The experts come from various scientific disciplines: mathematics, physics, geosciences/astrophysics, mechanics, process engineering and fluid mechanics.
The President of the BTU Prof. Dr.-Ing. Steinbach expressed: "I am delighted that the Couette-Taylor conference will bring international experts from 19 countries to Cottbus to share their expertise and know-how in turbulence research.”

Für das Jahr 2060 erwarten Zukunftsforscher einen Paradigmenwechsel beim globalen Energiekonsum: Erstmals wird die Menschheit mehr Energie zum Kühlen aufwenden...
Later during this century, around 2060, a paradigm shift in global energy consumption is expected: we will spend more energy for cooling than for heating....
Researchers from the Department of Atomically Resolved Dynamics of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg, the University of Potsdam (both in Germany) and the University of Toronto (Canada) have pieced together a detailed time-lapse movie revealing all the major steps during the catalytic cycle of an enzyme. Surprisingly, the communication between the protein units is accomplished via a water-network akin to a string telephone. This communication is aligned with a ‘breathing’ motion, that is the expansion and contraction of the protein.
This time-lapse sequence of structures reveals dynamic motions as a fundamental element in the molecular foundations of biology.
Zwei Forschungsteams gelang es gleichzeitig, den lang gesuchten Kern-Übergang von Thorium zu messen, der extrem präzise Atomkern-Uhren ermöglicht. Die TU Wien ist an beiden beteiligt.
Wenn man die exakteste Uhr der Welt bauen möchte, braucht man einen Taktgeber, der sehr oft und extrem präzise tickt. In einer Atomuhr nutzt man dafür die...
Two research teams have succeeded simultaneously in measuring the long-sought Thorium nuclear transition, which enables extremely precise nuclear clocks. TU Wien (Vienna) is part of both teams.
If you want to build the most accurate clock in the world, you need something that "ticks" very fast and extremely precise. In an atomic clock, electrons are...
