Construction Ecology and an Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics and Finite Volume Method

About the event (Agenda)

The American University of Armenia (AUA) and the National Polytechnic University of Armenia (NPUA) hosted the third set of lectures in the Yerevan Series on Engineering and Sustainability*. The lectures will last five days and will be delivered by Senior Lecturer Julia Lednova from the Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (Russia) and Prof. Giuliano De Stefano from the University of Campania (Italy).

The workshop, which lasts from April 9-13, 2018, 14:30-17:45, will cover two topics:

  • Construction Ecology (Julia Lednova)
  • Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics and Finite Volume Method (Giuliano De Stefano)

Dates: 9-13 April, 2018
Hours: 14:30 – 17:45
Venue: Building 2, Room 2431, National Polytechnic University of Armenia, 105 Vahan Teryan st., Yerevan 0009

Participation is free of charge. Open to engineers, economists, educators, and policymakers.

About the speakers

Julia Lednova

Julia Lednova is a senior lecturer of the Department of Civil Engineering and Applied Ecology, at the Civil Engineering Institute of the Peter the Great Saint-Petersburg Polytechnic University.




Giuliano De Stefano

Dr. Giuliano De Stefano is associate professor of Fluid Dynamics at the Engineering Department of the University of Campania (Italy). He received the MS degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Naples “Federico II” (1994), and the PhD degree in Aerospace Sciences and Technologies from the Second University of Naples (1998). Prior to becoming a faculty member in 2001, he was Research Fellow (1999) and Assistant Researcher (2000) at the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering of the Second University of Naples.

Dr. De Stefano conducts research in the general area of Computational Fluid Dynamics, with a particular focus on turbulent flows. He has been contributing to the development of finite-volume methods and wavelet-based computational methodologies for the simulation of turbulent flows for almost 20 years. Dr. De Stefano is the author of more than 60 peer-reviewed journal and international conference publications.

(*) The Yerevan Series on Engineering and Sustainability has a number of talks and workshops planned for 2017 and 2018. The Series is offered within the frames of the Erasmus+ MARUEEB Project. The academic partners from Armenia are AUA and NPUA.
