Welcome to the 2020 Fluids Engineering Division’s (FED) Summer Meeting in Orlando 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). This year FED is collaborating with the ASME Heat Transfer Division and the ASME International Conference on Nanochannels, Microchannels, and Minichannels in a four-year recurring cycle building upon prior collaborations in 2016 in Washington DC and 2012 in Puerto Rico. In 2019 FED collaborated with members in Asia and Europe and the Japanese Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME) and the Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers (KSME) in San Francisco; prior collaborations occurred in 1999 (San Francisco), 2003 (Honolulu). 2007 (San Diego), 2011 (JSME hosted in Hamamatsu, Japan), and 2015 (KSME hosted in Seoul, South Korea). 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.
About ASME Fluids Engineering Division
The Fluids Engineering Division (FED) of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) was founded in 1926 as the Hydraulic Division of the Society. Following the advances and trends in the field, the name of the Division was changed to the Fluids Engineering Division (FED) in 1962. Nine years later, the Division launched its own journal, the Journal of Fluids Engineering, which is now considered as one of the leading journals in the subject of engineering applications of Fluid Mechanics. Every year the Division organizes several conferences, meetings, symposia and fora that enjoy high reputation worldwide.
The Fluids Engineering Division is involved in all areas of fluid mechanics, encompassing both fundamental as well as applications, to all types of devices, processes and machines involving fluid flow, including pumps, turbines, compressors, pipelines, fluidic systems, biological fluid elements and hydraulic structures. The applications include single-phase and multi-phase (gas-liquid-soild, gas-liquid, gas-solid, liquid-liquid, and liquid-solid). Computational methods and instrumentation for fluid characterization are also featured.
Today, the membership of the Division extends to most of the countries in the world and spans all the Continents. Our 2019 summer meeting AJKFluids2019 was a collaboration between ASME, JSME (Japan) and KSME (Korea) and included over 700 presentations. We invite you all to participate in FEDSM-2020 our summer meeting through presentation of original work, publication in the conference proceedings, viewing exhibits, speaking with vendors and sponsors, and networking among peers. Companies are also invited to provide sponsorship for meeting activities.
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.
