Important information about online lectures and Moodle courses

The establishment and access control of the Moodle courses for the summer semester 2021 takes place via the LSF registration procedure. Students who have registered for a course in the LSF will be informed of the access code for the associated Moodle courses via the LSF. All information about online events and course documents can be found in the Moodle courses. Further information on the LSF receipt function for students can be found at:


The lectures and exercises start on April 04th, 2022 and will be in attendance.

9th and 10th November 20224th Colloquium on cavitation and Cavitation Erosion

Colloquium on Cavitation and Cavitation Erosion


Cavitation has been a field of research for many decades in various scientific disciplines, e.g., engineering, physics, chemistry and medicine. For the fourth time, the University Duisburg-Essen and the Ruhr-University Bochum are jointly organizing a colloquium on cavitation and cavitation erosion to address all possible disciplines associated with cavitation and cavitation erosion. Fluid dynamics as well as material related questions are to be addressed.

The colloquium intends to promote the exchange of knowledge   between research institutions and industry.

Topics and Disciplines

  • Engineering, physics, medicine, chemistry
  • Fluid dynamics and material science
  • Basic and applied research  
  • Theory, experiments, and numerical simulation
  • Hydrodynamic and acoustic cavitation
  • Cavitation on hydrofoils
  • Turbo machinery  
  • Cleaning technology
