About AJKFluids

Welcome to the 2023 Fluids Engineering Division’s (FED) Summer Meeting in Osaka Japan where FED continues to strive to meet the challenges of disseminating timely technical information by organizing technical conferences and conducting workshops and panel discussions. Every year FED organizes the Fluids Engineering Division Summer Meeting (FEDSM) and involves international collaborations, including with FED members in Asia and Europe in a four-year recurring cycle. For the 2023 summer meeting ASME FED will continue to grow its international activities with Asian engineering societies, notably the Japanese Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME) and the Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers (KSME). Starting in 1991, and for every 4 years, the FED has traditionally held its summer meeting on the West Coast to accommodate participants from Asia. In 1999 it was held in San Francisco and 2003 in Honolulu. However, in honor of our strong partnerships with JSME and KSME it was decided following FEDSM2007 in San Diego to locate this jointly sponsored conference outside of the U.S. In 2011 JSME hosted the first ASME/JSME/KSME Joint Fluids Engineering Meeting (AJK2011) in Hamamatsu, Japan. Four years later KSME hosted AJK2015 in Seoul, South Korea. After those two very successful conferences AJK2019 returned to the U.S, specifically to the city of San Francisco to mark 20 years since our last visit. This four-year cycle stimulates not only strong FED member participation but also international collaboration, bringing the global Fluids Engineering community together. The trend is consistent with ASME’s emphasis on Globalization and the OneASME mission to strengthen the Fluids Engineering community and its impact to society as a whole. Come and join us for what is expected to be an exciting and rewarding summer meeting in 2023 with JSME hosting in Osaka.

About ASME

ASME is a not-for-profit membership organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment, and skills development across all engineering disciplines, toward a goal of helping the global engineering community develop solutions to benefit lives and livelihoods. Founded in 1880 by a small group of leading industrialists, ASME has grown through the decades to include more than 140,000 members in 151 countries.

For more than 100 years, ASME has successfully enhanced performance and safety worldwide through its renowned codes and standards, conformity assessment programs, training courses, and journals.

ASME also produces nearly 40 international conferences. These industry-leading events feature advanced research and technical content spanning a range of industries impacted by mechanical engineering, including energy production, energy sources, advanced manufacturing, and engineering sciences.
