Twenty-three OSU faculty and students from the school of mechanical and aerospace engineering attended the 71st annual meeting of the American Physical Society’s Division of Fluid Dynamics (DFD) on November 18-20 in Atlanta, Georgia.
The seven faculty, seven doctoral students, eight master’s students and one undergraduate student from OSU presented 18 talks, one poster and one chair. As the chair, assistant professor Brian Elbing introduced speakers, and led the questions and answers portion of the presentation.
“The APS-DFD annual meeting is the most significant conference in fluid dynamics with all the top researchers attending from around the world,” Elbing said. “There are typically about 3,000 fluid dynamics researchers attending, which means OSU is representing almost 1 percent of the world's research activity in fluid dynamics.”
The objective of the meeting is to promote the advancement and dissemination of knowledge in all areas of fluid dynamics. Undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, university faculty, and researchers across government and industry are encouraged to share the latest developments in the field. The technical program features oral presentations, posters and videos of fluid flow, including mini-symposia on key topics.
