Professor of Cambridge University Will Conduct a Series of Seminars on Mechanics at Polytechnic University
On September 4, 2019, a series of seminars by Professor of Theoretical Geophysics Herbert E. HUPPERT at Polytechnic University on the applied problems of mechanics will begin. Altogether, six classes are scheduled. The scientist will touch upon the topics of convection, gravitational flows, climate change, flows in porous media, propagation of cracks in solids, etc. During the seminars, Professor Huppert will conduct a series of experiments and testing.
Herbert Huppert’s seminars are recommended to attend for students and young scientists with basic knowledge in the field of hydrodynamics and continuum mechanics. Classes will be held in English. Upon completion of the seminar cycle, participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
The number of seats is limited! You need to register to participate in the seminars.
The seminars will be held in the SPbPU Research Building at the address: 29 Polytechnicheskaya Str, AF, on the following days:
- September 4, 10:00 - 12:00, Big Conference Hall
- September 5, 10:00 - 12:00, Lecture Room No. 1
