The 5th International Conference on Experimental Fluid Mechanics (ICEFM 2018 Munich) will take place in Munich, Germany, from July 2-4, 2018.

The International Conference on Experimental Fluid Mechanics (ICEFM) was conceived by Professor Fenggan Zhuang (1925-2010), who was member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, in order to exchange latest results on experimental fluid mechanics beyond national boundaries and to report state-of-the-art techniques. The 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th conferences were held in China (Chengdu, 1991), Italy (Torino, 1994), Russia (Moscow, 1997), and China (Beijing, 2014) respectively.



Contributions to all areas of experimental fluid mechanics (fundamental and applied) are welcome, including measurement techniques and flow visualization. Suggested topics for presentation are given below.

  • Flow measurement techniques
  • Aerodynamics
  • Aero-acoustics
  • Flow instabilities
  • Transition
  • Turbulence & turbulent flows
  • Bio-fluid mechanics
  • Combustion & reacting flows
  • Micro- & nano-fluidics
  • Scalar transport & mixing
  • Environmental fluid mechanics
  • Flow control & drag reduction
  • Flow visualization
  • Icing, de-icing & anti-icing
  • Multiphase flows
  • Heat transfer
