Experiments in Fluid Mechanics, 23-24 October, 2017

Experiments in Fluid Mechanics is organized since 2013. The conference is committed to encourage cooperation and exchange of ideas among experimentalists working in the field of Fluid Mechanics.


  • Physics of compressible flows (shock waves and their interaction with boundary layer, phenomena occurring in the turbulent boundary layer), laminar turbulent transition.
  • Qualitative and quantitative investigation of hydrodynamic instabilities (in compressible and incompressible flows).
  • Self-induced non-stationary flows, as well as generation and propagation of acoustic waves.
  • Multi-phase as well as free surface flows. Microflows.
  • Advanced measurement techniques (3D PIV, PLIF, etc.).
  • Application of experimental techniques in various areas; in particular for aircraft engines, helicopter rotors, wing aerodynamics etc.
