In December 2006 the ASME Applied Mechanics Division (AMD) Executive Committee approved a new technical committee, Committee on Fluid-Structure Interaction (CFSI). The CFSI is sponsoring 6 mini-symposia within Track 12 "Mechanics of Solids, Structures and Fluids" of the ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress, in Boston, October 31 - November 6, 2008. These 6 mini-symposia will have a total of 17 sessions and are titled:

  • Topic 12-1: Advances in Computational Techniques for Fluid Mechanics and Fluid-Structure Interactions (4 sessions), Organizers: T. Tezduyar (Rice U) and Y. Matsumoto (U of Tokyo)
  • Topic 12-7: Complex Multi-Physics Flows in Environmental and Energy Sciences (3 sessions), Organizer: F. Xiao (Chinese Academy of Sciences)
  • Topic 12-9: Computational Bio-fluid and Bio-structural Mechanics (2 sessions), Organizer: L. Zhang (RPI)
  • Topic 12-13: Mechanical Modeling of Interface Phenomena (2 sessions), Organizers: R. Sauer and P. Wriggers (Leibniz U Hannover) and T. Laursen (Duke U)
  • Topic 12-15: Advances in the Theory and Simulation of Flow through Porous Media (3 sessions). Organizers: R. Juanes and L. Cueto-Felgueroso (MIT) and S. Matringe (Stanford)
  • Topic 12-30: Reduced Order Models in Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer (3 sessions), Organizers: D. Gartling and R. Hogan (Sandia National Laboratory)

A large number of leading researchers in fluid mechanics, computational mechanics, and fluid-structure interaction will give presentations at these 6 mini-symposia. Many of the speakers will be from the United States, Japan and European Union, but we will also have speakers from China, South America and other parts of the world.
