The focus of Fluids Applications and Systems Technical Committee (FASTC) is to promote the advancement and dissemination of fluids engineering research and technology in several wide-ranging single- and multi-disciplinary topic areas. These include such traditional disciplines as fluid power systems, turbomachinery, automotive flows, and industrial fluid mechanics, and can include less traditional topics such as environmental engineering, chemical processing, or fluid vibrations and acoustics. FASTC was formed in 1990 by combining the Fluid Machinery and Fluid Transients Committees, as well as the applications portion of the Fluid Mechanics Committee. The Fluid Mechanics Committee was founded in 1956, and the Fluid Machinery Committee was originally founded as the Pumping Machinery Committee in 1938. The Fluid Transients Committee evolved from the Water hammer Committee, which was founded in 1931 as the first Technical Committee in the then Hydraulics Division (later Fluids Engineering Division) of ASME. Since the 1990 merger, FASTC has expanded its scope to include a broad range of traditional and emerging technology topics within the general area of applied fluids engineering. The FASTC is particularly interested in engaging professionals in industry as well as academia, and to increase the interaction among and between the two.


Topics: Data Processing / Algorithms in Fluid Measurements, Fluid Measurement and Instrumentation, Non-invasive Measurements in Fluid Flows, Novel Measurement Techniques in Fluid Mechanics, FMI Graduate Student Scholarship Competition

Topic Chairs: Yang Liu, Soroor Karimi, Thiana Sedrez, Heipeng Zhang

The Fluid Measurements and Instrumentation Technical Committee (FMITC) is focus on measurement techniques and instrumentation issues relevant to fluid flow including industrial applications and experimental development. Modern fluids engineering embraces a complex spectrum of problems from the relatively simple case of isothermal, incompressible, single phase flow of Newtonian fluids to non-Newtonian multiphase flow with heat and mass transfer from the nanoscale to the macroscale and includes subsonic and supersonic flows, flows pertaining to environmental concerns, and large scale industrial flows. In all cases, experimental data are acquired and used, amongst other objectives to: lead to new discoveries, obtain fundamental information on processes, verify new theories, guide and validate the development of analytical and numerical models, and certify the performance of fluid machinery. Areas of focus include: noninvasive measurement techniques, measurements in environmental flows, MEMS for Fluid Measurements, chemical and biochemical sensing, global flow measurements, microfluidic flow systems, and others.

The Fluid Mechanics Technical Committee (FMTC) focus is understanding and supporting the fundamental fluid mechanics activities including turbulent and shear flows, unsteady flows, aerodynamics and hydrodynamics and unconventional or emerging topics such as advanced aerospace, marine or bio-inspired related fluid dynamics and energy. FMTC was founded in 1956 with R. C. Dean as the first chair.


Track Description: The Multiphase Flow Technical Committee (MFTC) original focus was the understanding of the mechanics of cavitation and its effects on machinery. Throughout the years the committee has broadened its scope to promote the understanding and communication of all aspects of multiphase flow topics: liquid-gas flows, liquid-solids flows, gas-solids flows, or three phase flows. MFTC began as the Cavitation Committee in 1937 with L. F. Moody and R. T. Knapp as its first two chairs. The committee name was changed to the Polyphase Committee in 1972 and to its current name in 1982.

The focus of the Computational Fluid Dynamics Technical Committee (CFDTC) is the field of computational fluid dynamics and related areas. CFD is primarily concerned with the numerical solution of the equations that describe fluid dynamics. It also often involves the related area of heat transfer. Areas of interest to the CFDTC include but are not limited to the development of algorithms for use with CFD, advanced techniques for the numerical representation of fluid flow, quantification of numerical error, verification and validation for CFD, practices and procedures for the accurate application of CFD, turbulence modeling and simulation and fundamental research and applications. The overall objective of the CFDTC is to develop, promote, coordinate and disseminate information relating to the successful and accurate application of CFD to problems of interest and importance to the research community as well as to industrial users and other practitioners.

The Micro Nano Fluid Dynamics Technical Committee (MNFDTC) primary focus is the developing field of micro and nano fluid dynamics. MNFDTC provides a means of promoting the latest developments in the uses of fluid for micro-and nano-devices in mechanical, chemical and biological applications across research and industry. The track covers multidisciplinary research topics that include: micro-total-analysis systems (MicroTAS) and lab-on-a-chip applications; transport in biological and molecular systems; electrokinetic, electrohydrodynamic, and magnetohydrodynamic modeling and applications; flow and transport diagnostic and measurement techniques; micro- and nanoscale thermofluid science and devices; biologically enabled microfluidics; and sensors and transducers for interdisciplinary microfluidic applications.


Track Description: Flow visualization has a long tradition in fluids engineering, from Leonardo Da Vinci's sketches of flowing water, through well-publicized images of canonical flows in many facilities over the past century, to the modern-day quantitative flow visualization techniques in experimental and computational fluid dynamics. While the capabilities of the technology and techniques at our disposal have increased greatly, the challenge remains to process and represent data in the most meaningful way, to help gain physical insight that will lead to progress in the field.

Topics: Flow Visualization Images, Flow Visualization Video


Track Description: The Who's Who Video Competition is to provide a video-display platform at the FEDSM24 for research groups or labs in the fluids engineering community, such as those from universities, government agencies, industry, or a group of collaborators from multiple institutions, to showcase their research activities and educational efforts. The winners will be selected among the uploaded video presentations.
