This year the Nordic Water Network organised its Autumn School “Flow Measurement Methods” for the fifth time. It took place from 21st to 25th October 2019 at TU Berlin. The NWN was glad to welcome 24 students the school, 15 of them coming from our foreign partner universities CUT Cracow and NTNU Trondheim besides 9 students from TU Berlin.

All of them participated in a rich programme including lectures and exercises, an excursion and several additional after-class activities strengthening the student’s knowledge about different subject areas, practising its application and providing opportunities to cross cultural and social exchange.

The lectures and exercises were held by professors from NTNU Trondheim and TU Berlin dealing with topics such as flow and temperature measurement (thermocouples), Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), Laser Doppler Velocimetry (LDV) and digital water metering and data sampling.

In addition to the courses in class, excursions to the Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt Berlin (PTB) offered a welcome change and practical experiences. In the evenings several after-class activities were organised like a get-together in the laboratory, a visit at the Chair of Brewing Science at TUB and a guided tour at the Berlin Wall Memorial.
