  • Séminaire PMMH - Tobias Schneider (EPFL)
    Vendredi 15 février 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    A network of invariant solutions underlying spatio-temporal patterns in inclined layer convection
    Thermal convection in a fluid between two horizontal plates, a lower hot plate and an upper cold plate, exhibits chaotic dynamics and turbulence. If such a convection cell is inclined against gravity, buoyancy forces drive hot and cold fluid up and down the incline leading to a shear flow in the base state and the (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH Jean-Arthur Olive (ENS)
    Vendredi 22 février 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    From micro-crack to crustal fault
    Major fault systems dissect the Earth's crust at the boundaries of tectonic plates. On human time scales, faults may slip catastrophically during earthquakes, but fault lines remain steady features of tectonic landscapes. On geological time scales, new fault lines can form, shape mountains and basins as they (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Shreyas Mandre (Brown Univ., Providence)
    Vendredi 15 mars 11:00-12:00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Surfactants driven out of equilibrium by a flow
    A surfactant is a chemical compound that adsorbs onto a fluid-fluid interface and reduces its surface tension. A non-uniform distribution of such compounds at the interface causes a Marangoni stress that drives a flow, which in turn transports the surfactant. Estimating in situ the degree to which the adsorbed (...)
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.
