AFMS is an independent not-for-profit society that encourages and promotes interest in fluid mechanics and related disciplines in Australia and New Zealand. This is done by providing a forum for people with a common interest, and by publishing relevant material. The Society supports all those with an interest in fluid mechanics including researchers and professionals. Its core function is to support the organisation of the Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference (AFMC) series, currently held biennially.
Vale Professor Gregory John Walker (1940-2017)
On Friday 13th October 2017 Greg Walker passed away from complications due to cancer. Greg was a dedicated and long term contributor to the Australian fluid mechanics community but most significantly the international turbomachinery community. He will be deeply missed for his great sense of humour and good company as well as the pleasure of working with such a meticulous and modest researcher.
A tribute to his life and career in fluid mechanics has been compiled by colleagues and friends Paul Brandner, Alan Henderson, Paul Gostelow, William Solomon and Frans Breugelmans.
