Osborne Reynolds Day: celebrating excellence in Fluid Mechanics

Osborne Reynolds Day: celebrating excellence in Fluid Mechanics

Osborne Reynolds Day is one of the most anticipated events of the fluid mechanics year, providing a platform to engage with some of the brightest minds in the UK and explore ground-breaking research in the field.

Running for over 20 years and held on 5th July, the eponymous event honours Osborne Reynolds, a pioneering figure in fluid mechanics and England’s first full-time engineering professor.

Organised by Osborne’s university – The University of Manchester – in collaboration with ERCOFTAC (European Research Community on Flow Turbulence and Combustion), the event hosts a prestigious presentation competition for recent doctoral graduates and soon-to-graduate PhD students. It also includes a panel discussion from both academia and industry to discuss the latest challenges and opportunities.

Our co-founder and director, David Standingford provided a brief introduction to ERCOFTAC, including its structure based on scientific research work via Special Interest Groups and national Pilot Centres whose representatives manage the organisation. Within the UK, the Pilot Centre is also the UK Fluids Network supported by the EPSRC – which neatly links the national and international communities. The numerous publications and events serve a worldwide audience and ERCOFTAC warmly welcomes new members throughout the year.

With presentations showcasing innovative research that bridges the gap between academia and industry, Osborne Reynolds Day is an excellent opportunity for networking, recruitment, and gaining insights into cutting-edge developments in fluid mechanics.

Congratulations to the winner of this year’s competition, Chris Goodwin from the University of Nottingham, whose outstanding work on quantum turbulence in superfluid helium has introduced an innovative perspective on turbulence.
