AFMS Summer School 2023
This Summer School hosted at the University of Adelaide aims to provide an immersive learning experience in multiphase flow physics, encompassing theoretical concepts, hands-on laboratory and computer practical with keynote lecturers from academia and industry. The program is designed to cater to participants from various backgrounds, including HDR students, researchers, industry professionals, and government representatives.
Australasian Conference on Particle Approaches & Applications in Fluids
The 2024 Australasian Conference on Particle Approaches & Applications in Fluids (ACPAAF2024) will be held at the Queensland University of Technology, between February 1st-2nd. The ACPAAF2024 provides a platform for researchers and practitioners in the field of particle-based methods to share their latest findings, discuss challenges and opportunities, as well as explore new directions in the field.
Australia-Korea Rheology Conference 2023
The 2023 AKRC will be held at the University of Melbourne, Australia, between December 4th-7th, 2023. The conference will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the ASR. The conference program includes the ASR Medallion Lecture from joint awardees Profs Peter Daivis and Billy Todd, as well as a Special Session on suspension rheology celebrating Prof. Roger Tanner's 90th birthday. We invite submissions for regular presentations and poster presentations.
Flow in Porous Media Event
Flow in porous media is ubiquitous across the natural and industrial world. This research program will bring together Australian and international experts from a broad range of backgrounds to tackle these fluid dynamical problems. The first week will consist of a lecture series by the invited experts with significant time for small group discussions. The remainder of the program will have fewer talks and focus on mini research projects carried out by the participants.
12th Australasian Natural Convection Workshop (ANCW)
The 12th Australasian Natural Convection Workshop (ANCW) will be held at The University of Melbourne on 30 November-1 December 2023. The workshop focuses on natural convection and mixed convection problems in heat and mass transfer, and provides a small, informal and interactive forum for academics, researchers and research students to interact, discuss their research findings and establish networking.
AFMS Photo and Video Competition 2022
The 2022 competition's winning photos and videos are now available in the Gallery of the Australasian Fluid Mechanics Society.
Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference
The 23rd Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference was hosted by the University of Sydney on 4-8 December 2022 in Sydney, Australia.
A report to quantify the value of Fluid Mechanics in Australia
The AFMS is now actively working on a report to that will estimate the financial impact of fluid mechanics research across Australia and New Zealand, as well as other key metrics such as employment numbers.
Fluid mechanics is the analysis of fluid flows. The air flowing in our lungs, the blood flowing in our veins, the lava erupting from a volcano, the air flowing over an aircraft wing, water flooding from a dam and the chemicals mixing in a pharmaceuticals plant are all examples of flowing fluids. Fluid mechanicians aim to understand fluid flows, predicting, adapting and harnessing flows for practical applications.
Members of the Australasian Fluid Mechanics Society provide service to aerospace, automotive, biological, chemicals, defence, energy, environmental, food, maritime, medical, mining, pharmaceuticals, sports, and water industries. We teach biomedical, civil, chemical, environmental, and mechanical engineers, applied mathematicians, meteorologists and oceanographers, continuing a 50-year-old tradition of excellence in Australian and New Zealand fluid mechanics.
Our 350-plus members are taking on the greatest challenges of our time in water, food security, energy, health, transportation, weather prediction and climate change, under the overarching imperative of sustainability.

Postdoctoral Position in Computational Fluid Mechanics
The University of Melbourne
This is an exciting opportunity for a researcher with expertise in Computational Fluid Mechanics to conduct computational research towards advancing our physical understanding and modelling of wall-bounded turbulent flows over riblets and roughness.
The role involves conducting independent research, publishing findings in journals and presenting at conferences. The appointee will join a Mechanical Engineering Department team, collaborate with fellow researchers, supervise PhD students, and potentially engage in limited teaching duties. This work is aimed at both fundamental progress and practical applications, with support from government grants, international funding, and industry partnerships.
