Event Sponsor: 
Parviz Moin, Director of Center for Turbulence Research
Prof. Ugo Piomelli

It was a sunny morning in July 1990, the first week of the CTR Summer Program, Massimo Germano, Parviz Moin, Bill Cabot and Ugo Piomelli met to discuss the possible uses of an identity that Massimo Germano had recently derived. This talk will chronicle how the events of that month produced one of the most influential subgrid-scale models for large-eddy simulations.
