This course is organised jointly with CISM, Udine (I). The course will present a broad overview on fluids and flows ranging from the dynamics of complex fluids to the statistical description of complex flows. In particular the course will address the physics of yield stress materials, the rheology of dense fluid suspensions, the physics of laminar and turbulent flows, the turbulent transport of heat and mass. Lectures will present the phenomenology, the theoretical framework and, where appropriate, they will illustrate numerical and experimental approaches. The course addresses both the Dutch (JMBC) and the international scientific community (CISM).

The Graduate School on Engineering Mechanics was founded in 1996 and received a five-year accreditation of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) directly at the first application in June 1997.
The EM Graduate School embraces all internationally important research groups that are active in the field at Eindhoven University of Technology, Delft University of Technology and University of Twente. Eindhoven University of Technology acts as the commissioner of the EM Graduate School, locating the EM Secretariat.
The primary aims of the EM Graduate School are to provide additional education and training for PhD students of the participating institutions and to foster scientific contacts and collaboration.
In the second half of 2001, the activities of the Graduate School over the first five-year period of operation were peer reviewed by an international panel and a request for renewal of the KNAW accreditation was submitted in December 2001. In June 2002 the EM Graduate School received the ECOS/KNAW accreditation for its second period of operation, 2002-2007.
In the second half of 2006, the activities of the Graduate School over the second five-year period of operation were again peer reviewed by an international panel and a request for renewal of the KNAW accreditation was submitted in December 2006.
In June 2007 the EM Graduate School received the ECOS/KNAW accreditation for its third period of operation, 2007-2013.
Joint initiative JMBC & EM
The JMBC is the Dutch researchschool for fluid mechanics. About fifty professors with their groups participate in it. With the combined knowledge, skills and facilities of these research groups the JMBC offers a very stimulating, multidisciplinary environment for advanced research in fluid mechanics and for the education of talented graduate and postgraduate students.
At present more than 250 PhD-students participate in the JMBC. The research activities of the research school cover not only the development of theoretical models and mathematical methods and associated numerical tools, but also a wide spectrum of experimental investigations. This website provides an overview of the activities of the JMBC.
