Symposium on

Model-Consistent Data-driven Turbulence Modeling

What is this symposium about?

The past few years have witnessed great interest in data-driven turbulence modeling. While much of the initial work in this area has been devoted towards different ways of representing model discrepancies using machine learning, many recent efforts have recognized the importance of enforcing model consistency. In other words, the flow solver is integrated into the training process (i.e. inference and/or learning stage) to promote consistency between the training and prediction environments. This symposium brings together experts and participants from academia, industry and national labs who have explored different ways of approaching model consistency in machine learning augmented turbulence modeling.
