Advanced aeordynamics course

March 27 @ 09:00 - March 31 @ 17:00

Welcome to a course on advanced aerodynamics. This course is given in collaboration with Cranfield University. 

Dates and place

The course is given from March 27 to March 31, 2023, and is held in person at the Cranfield University, UK.


The registration fee is £1500. SARC provides scholarship to 10 PhD students, covering their registration fees. In case number of the scholarship applicants exceed 10, selection will be made by the SARC management.


To introduce the techniques and tools for modelling, simulating and analysing realistic computational fluid dynamic problems for industrial scale applications with practical hands on experience of commercial software packages used in industry.


Prof. Karl Jenkins, Prof. Martin Skote,  Dr. Laszlo Konozsy, Dr. Panagiotis Tsoutsanis, Dr. Tom Teschner, Dr. Istvan Tamas Josza.
