Special Session 1
FLUID FLOW, ENERGY TRANSFER & DESIGN (SS1)
Advances in the understanding of fluid flow and energy transfer continue to be crucial in achieving improved performance and efficiency in a broad range of systems.
This special session welcomes contributions on analytical, computational (CFD) and experimental aspects offluid flow and energy transfer relevant to science and technology. It is intended as a platform for exchanging experiences and information, enlivening academic thoughts and promoting the further development of research in these disciplines.
