Gold in ERCOFTAC da Vinci Competition 2016

Daniel Kintea (SLA) awarded gold medal

For his work on hydrodynamics and thermodynamics of ice particle accretion, Daniel Kintea (Institute of Fluid Mechanics and Aerodynamics) has been awared the gold medal of this years's ERCOFTAC Leonardo da Vinci Award.

The European Research Community on Flow, Turbulence and Combustion (ERCOFTAC) is a scientific association in the fields of fluid mechanics, turbulence and combustion research. The annual da Vinci Competition is one of the most important events in ERCOFTAC’s calendar. Its importance arises from the fact that it is the principal ERCOFTAC forum for the youngest, most gifted researchers in our field in Europe to present the products of their endeavours. The hope, indeed expectation, is that these young researchers will progress to become Europe’s leaders in Flow, Turbulence and Combustion, and will act as ERCOFTAC’s most eminent ambassadors.
