  he 2019 Fall Fluid Mechanics Symposium (FFMS 2019) will take place on November 4 in Café X and 310 Kelly Hall. This annual event, now in its 12th year, provides a venue for disseminating results and building community among fluid mechanicians at Virginia Tech. FFMS 2019 is co-sponsored by the Department of Aerospace and Ocean Engineering, the Department of Mechanical Engineering, and Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics.

The symposium will consist of two parallel sessions of 10-minute presentations by faculty and students covering a broad range of fluid mechanics research. It is anticipated that many of these presentations will also be given at the ASME IMECE and APS DFD meetings, but presentation at either of these events is not required for participation in FFMS 2019. The presentation format is modeled after that of the APS DFD meeting.

This year's plenary speaker is Professor Zhi-Jian Wang from The University of Kansas, who will be giving a talk titled Large Eddy Simulation of Vortex Dominated Turbulent Flow Using High-Order Methods.

There is no registration fee to attend the meeting. Please feel free to come and go throughout the day.

Presentation Schedule:

Talks to be given in Café X are listed here.

Talks to be given in 310 Kelly Hall are listed here.

Abstract Submission:

Abstract submission is now closed.

Presentation Formats:

All presentations will be 10 minutes with 5 minutes for questions and transition between speakers.

Gallery of Fluid Motion videos and poster displays are also welcomed. Please email if you wish to submit a non-lecture presentation.


FFMS 2019 will be held in Café X and 310 Kelly Hall. Beverages and light refreshments will be provided at various times throughout the day.
