GeoFlow II

Topical Team

"A main objective of a Topical Team is to attain an effective coordination of the activities of the different research groups represented by the team members through the organisation of ad-hoc meetings. Such meetings enable an efficient exchange of the most recent scientific results obtained by the different groups, and aim at agreeing on research priorities"

Principle of interdisciplinary GEOFLOW data analysis. The raw data contains telemetry and image data, which are synchronized in a data base at BTU Cottbus. The fringe pattern evaluation (also at BTU) for GeoFlow I is based mostly on forward modelling by means of calculation of fringe patterns from numerically simulated temperature fields. For some data from GeoFlow I and especially for GeoFlow II an inverse modelling technique is regarded, too. Numerical simulations are done with the numerical code of Rainer Hollerbach and GAIA from German Aerospace Center Berlin. Further interpretation of fluid flow dynamics are based on non-linear and bifurcation theories in Avignon, Paris and Potsdam. The transfer to cylindrical geometries is discussed additional between BTU Cottbus and LeHavre.
