EUCASS-3AF (3 - 8 July 2022)

The LMFL will be part of the Local Steering Committee of the "9th European Conference of Aerospace Sciences" organised by EUCASS. This edition has received the support of the Association Aéronautique et Astronautique de France (3AF) and will be carried out with the partnership of the clusters Aér'Hauts-de-France, Normandie Aerospace and Skywin for Belgium. The LMFL will propose a cross-cutting session on "flow control".

Lille Turbulence Program 2021

The LMFL is launching the first edition of the "Lille Turbulence Program" this year. The event which will be renewed each year takes place over 4 weeks in July. About twenty international guests are invited to present and discuss their work, think about new avenues of research and collaborations or work on the experimental and numerical LMFL's databases of turbulent flows. The 2021 edition had to be adapted because of the health crisis. About ten guests are present at the LMFL and those who have not been able to come follow the webinars online.

PIV campaign in an axial compressor CME2 of ENSAM

End of a one month and a half test campaign on the axial compressor test bench CME2 at ENSAM Lille using optical metrology (PIV). This has been the first experiences of this kind conducted on this compressor, with its share of good and bad surprises. Several configurations of interest have been documented, including cases close to stall, with and without active flow control and with various level of inlet distortions.

LMFL Webinar

The LMFL is launching its weekly seminar/webinar, which will take place on Thursdays at 4:30 p.m. Some speakers will give their presentation from the building Boussinesq (M6) of the LMFL (Campus of Villeneuve d'Ascq) but will be broadcast by the zoom application. The first speaker will be Alexander Smits of Princeton University on Thursday, October 29. The next speakers will be posted periodically on the LMFL website and distributed by email. If you want to receive the ads you can register with Francesco Romano (

Lille Turbulence Program 2021

The LMFL will hold an annual Lille Turbulence Programme (LTP), the first being LTP2021 which will start on Monday 28 June 2021 and will end on Friday 23 July 2021. The aim of the LTP is to initiate national and international collaborations on turbulence research and make our extensive turbulence data bases widely available. Invited participants will be given access to our data and facilities and will be offered a desk in the LMFL's turbulence building for a duration between 2 and 4 weeks.

Webinar Michael Gorokhovski

Statistical models of a droplet in the highly intermittent turbulence: breakup, dynamics and evaporation.

Doctor (1981) in physics and mathematics, Mikhael Gorokhovski worked for ten years at the State University of Kazakhstan. Since 1991, he has been carrying out his research and teaching in France at the University of Rouen, where he was appointed university professor in 1995. Since 2006, he has been a professor at the École Centrale de Lyon where he teaches fluid mechanics and combustion. In his research at LMFA - UMR 5509, he focuses on understanding the statistical physics of turbulence in the presence of different phases. At ERCOFTAC (European Research Community on Flow, Turbulence and Combustion), Mikhael Gorokhovski is coordinator of the Center Henri Bénard. He is also a member of the Russian Science Foundation Expert Panel, Editorial Fellow of the journal Atomization and Sprays, and a guest member of the Editorial Board of the Annual Review of Fluid Mechanics. Among his stays abroad, he was Senior Fellow at Stanford University 2000-2001.

Webinar Bérengère Dubrulle

A model of interacting Navier-Stokes singularities

Bérengère Dubrulle received her PhD from Toulouse-III-Paul-Sabatier University in 1990. In 1991, she started a postdoctoral research at the Meteorological Research Institute of Tsukuba in Japan. The same year she became a research fellow at the CNRS. Between 1998 and 1999, she was an associate researcher at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. In 2000, she became research director at the CNRS at the CEA Saclay in the SPEC (Condensed State Physics Service) laboratory, within the GIT team (Instabilities and Turbulence Group) which later became SPHYNX. Bérengère Dubrulle has won several prizes including the “Madame Victor Noury ​​Prize” from the Academy of Sciences in 2008, the “CNRS silver medal” in 2017 and the “EGU Lewis Fry Richardson Medal” in 2021. She is “Associate Editors” for Journal of Fluid Mechanics. Her research interests include planetary protonbulae, scale invariances, turbulence, turbulence simulation and climate.
