Abstracts of the presentations during ExFM2017

Conference Agenda

Experiments in Fluid Mechanics is organized since 2013. The conference is committed to encourage cooperation and exchange of ideas among experimentalists working in the field of Fluid Mechanics.


  • Physics of compressible flows (shock waves and their interaction with boundary layer, phenomena occurring in the turbulent boundary layer), laminar turbulent transition.
  • Qualitative and quantitative investigation of hydrodynamic instabilities (in compressible and incompressible flows).
  • Self-induced non-stationary flows, as well as generation and propagation of acoustic waves.
  • Multi-phase as well as free surface flows. Microflows.
  • Advanced measurement techniques (3D PIV, PLIF, etc.).
  • Application of experimental techniques in various areas; in particular for aircraft engines, helicopter rotors, wing aerodynamics etc.
