Description: 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 Waterhammer 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.

Description: 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.
