  Information - NP6.06 Astrophysical Turbulence and Shocks, Plasmas and High Mach Number Flows (co-listed in PS)

Event Information
This session focuses on fundamental and applied aspects of turbulence in flows subject to destabilising accelerations in both compressible and incompressible fluids. Specific topics include Rayleigh-Taylor instability , Richtmyer-Meshkov instability . Relativistic, magnetohydrodynamic and gravitational interactions. Plasma dynamics. Mixing and Coherent structures in Astrophysical flows. Explosions, Experimental, numerical and theoretical studies of shocks. New numerical and experimental technics and observations. Direct numerical simulation, large-eddy simulation and turbulence models of compressible and hypersonic flows
