Welcome to the 5th edition of the

Summer School on Advanced Research in Turbomachinery

Welcome to the 5th edition of the Summer School on Advanced Research in Turbomachinery, organized by the Department of Industrial Engineering of the University of Florence.

The School is aimed at providing engineering professionals and young researchers with an overview on both the most relevant issues in turbomachinery research and the current trends in turbomachinery design and analysis.

For each topic, the current state of the art is presented from a theoretical and a technical point of view. Concrete examples of applied research are presented, with special focus on the latest developments and breakthrough technologies.


The School
ART2021 is the fifth edition of the Summer School on Advanced Research in Turbomachinery that will be held from June 28th to July 2nd, 2021. Since the beginning, the purpose of ART is to provide participants with an overview of advanced topics related to turbomachinery engineering.

Due to the persisting limitations caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the School will be held in an online format following the positive experience of the last edition. The program has been slightly revised in order to have a sustainable delivering of virtual lessons: this will not affect the overall quality of the School that will maintain the presence of three prestigious Keynote Lectures. In order to facilitate participation we have  reduced the registration fee to 290€ with the availability of 12 scholarships with amounts of 290€ each.

The Summer school is organized by the Department of Industrial Engineering (DIEF) of the University of Florence, which has a long and recognized experience in the main disciplines related to applied research on turbomachinery such as aerodynamics, turbulence, heat transfer, acoustics, two-phase flows and combustion. Applications to gas turbines, wind turbines, steam turbines, pumps and compressors and their components will be addressed in the different lectures. Although ART2021 mainly deals with numerical modelling, experimental methods and measurements techniques are also considered with some significant tracks.

Professors and researchers of DIEF will be the instructors of the Summer School. Keynote lectures held by international experts from both academia and industry will also be offered. Each talk will be composed by a brief overview of the background, quickly moving to show cutting‑edge aspects of the described topics. Relevance will be given to the activities developed in European research programs in the last 25 years starting from FP4.

ART2020 is mainly directed to PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and personnel from industry. It can be also considered of interest to anyone, working in the turbomachinery field, interested in improving her/his knowledge. To facilitate the attendance, the School will be organized with both plenary and parallel sessions. Certificate of attendance will be released to all participants, while official ECTS will be released to PhD students only.
