AFMS Photo & Video Competition 2022
The AFMS is running again in 2022 a Video and Photo Competition for undergraduate and postgraduate students. This competition aims to attract promising new students to fluid mechanics and demonstrate to the general public the beauty, diversity and vital contemporary applications of fluid mechanics using visual media.
Call for Nominations: AFMS Fellowship & Emerging Leader Awards
The AFMS is calling for nominations from existing members for the honour of an AFMS Fellowship and its recently inaugurated Emerging Leader Awards.
AFMS Student/ECR Retreat 2022
The AFMS Student/ECR Retreat, the flagship event for Students/ECRs interested in fluids across Australasia, will be held in-person on 18-19th July 2022 at the University of Melbourne Parkville campus. Students/ECRs across all sub-disciplines of Fluid Mechanics will gather and create a dialogue about their collective body of work. This retreat will provide participants with multiple networking and upskilling opportunities.
Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference
The 23rd Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference will be hosted by the University of Sydney on 4-8 December 2022 in Sydney, Australia. The AFMS will offer up to 10 Participation Awards for students and up to 5 Return-to-Work Grants for staff to attend the AFMC.
Distinguished Professor Ivan Marusic admitted as an ATSE fellow
Distinguished Professor - and AFMS fellow - Ivan Marusic is well-known in the Australasian fluid mechanics community for his extensive contributions to our understanding of turbulence and boundary-layer phenomena. Prof. Marusic was a founder of the AFMS in 2008 and the Society's inaugural president (2008-2012). The impact of this work has been recognised by the Academy of Technology and Engineering who have admitted Prof. Marusic as a fellow.
Pawsey launched CFD community of practice
The Community of Practice, which aims to give CFD practitioners using supercomputers the opportunity to share their knowledge and experiences while remaining connected around High Performance Computing topics.
Australasian Fluid Mechanics Seminar Series
The AFMS has introduced an online Fluid Mechanics research-seminar series to allow our community to benefit from participation in research seminars during a time of social distancing and travel restrictions.
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.
