SYMPOSIUM: CONTEMPORARY PROBLEMS OF FLUID MECHANICS
Within its regular calendar of organizing
scientific meetings from all fields of theoretical and applied mechanics,
Yugoslav Society of Mechanics, in collaboration with the Faculty of Mechanical
Engineering, Chair of Fluid Mechanics, University of Belgrade, organized
the II International Symposium: Contemporary Problems of Fluid Mechanics,
held in Belgrade, Sep. 29 through Oct. 2, 1996. The Symposium attracted
the attention of several researchers from Yugoslavia and from abroad, so
that the texts of 52 contributed papers and 4 general lectures were published
in the Proceedings in English and French, on 290 pages. Authors and titles
of general lectures were:
J. Zierep, "Fascinating Fluiddynamics",
C. Tournier, "Application de la polarographie
a la métrologie des écoulements pariétaux"
L.J. Crane, "Fluid Mechanics of the Fibre
Z. Boričić, B. Obrović, "Development and
application of the generalized similarity method to the problems of the
boundary layer flow".
Contributed papers were divided into the
- Fluid flow in channels and pipes (4
- Experimental methods (5 Papers)
- Aerodynamics (4 papers)
- Two-phase flows (9 papers)
- Boundary layers (2 papers)
- Numerical simulations (7 Papers)
- Turbomachinery (6 papers)
- Heat and mass transfer (7 Papers)
- Turbulence (5 Papers)
- Miscellaneous (3 papers).
The Symposium was dedicated to the 70th
anniversary of Dr. Viktor Saljnikov, Professor Emeritus and Corresponding
member of the Europian Academy of Sciences and Arts.
