This year the Nordic Water Network organised its Autumn School “Flow Measurement Methods” for the fourth time. It took place from 8th to 13rd October 2018 at TU Berlin. The NWN was glad to welcome 24 students the school, 14 of them coming from our foreign partner universities CUT Cracow, NTNU Trondheim and DCU Dublin besides 10 students from TU Berlin.

All of them participated in a rich programme including ten 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), signal conditioning, time and frequency analysis, particle image velocimetry (PIV) and the evaluation of measurement data.

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 of the museum “The Story of Berlin” and an evening programme in Berlin’s vibrant district of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg.
