01-04/08/10 : ASME - Montréal (Canada)

Du 01/08/2010 Au 04/08/2010

The 3rd Joint US-European Fluids Engineering Division Summer Meeting (FEDSM2010)
August 1-4, 2010
Montreal, Canada
Sponsored by Fluid Applications and Systems Technical Committee of the
ASME Fluids Engineering Division

The ground transportation industry faces important challenges associated with stringent environmental
regulations related to vehicle emissions while continuously improving high standards for driveability,
passenger security and comfort. Furthermore, manufacturers have to deal with a strong competitive
environment and must constantly seek innovative and efficient ways to develop their vehicles and products.
In that perspective, the last decade has seen a growing interest related to the unsteady external and internal
flows playing a central role in aerodynamics, thermal management, and flow induced noise issues. The
understanding and control of the spatio-temporal properties of the related flows is now necessary to achieve
the vehicle development targets. These challenges should be addressed by strong interaction between
industry and academia.
This symposium is intended to provide a platform to exchange results, report on the latest methodologies,
and identify research needs concerning advances in: physical modelling; numerical predictions;
experimental approaches; and analysis of huge data fields.

The main areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • External aerodynamics: mean forces and moments, yaw effects, pass-by situations
  • Aerodynamic noise: source identification, structural transmission to interior
  • HVAC system: flow rates, thermal behavior, noise
  • Underhood thermal management
  • Fan performance and induced noise
  • Water management, soiling, and other multi-phase phenomena
