Welcome to ISAIF 12th!

The 12th International Symposium on Experimental and Computational Aerothermodynamics of Internal Flows will be held from July 13 to July 16, 2015 in Lerici (SP), Italy, at Villa Marigola, a prestigious eighteenth century palace, center of conferences and exhibitions.

Lerici is a coastal city of north-western Italy, overlooking the famous Gulf of Poets, one of the most important seaside villages of Liguria and northern Italy in general.

The Symposium includes 4 days of scientific and technological sessions.

The conference language is English. It is expected that this symposium will attract the participants from all over the world. The organizers would like to cordially invite the scientists and researchers to the 12th ISAIF.

The suggested topics include theoretical, numerical and experimental studies of:

  • Flows in compressors and turbines (axial and radial), impellers, intakes, nozzles, diffusers and channels.
  • Transonic and supersonic flows, shock wave-boundary layer interaction.
  • Laminar, turbulent flows, incl. transition and separation.
  • Unsteady flows, stall and surge, aerodynamic acoustics.
  • Internal flows in combustion chambers and facilities.
  • Flows with heat and mass transfer.
  • Flow control and measurements.
  • Flows involving environmental protection and renewable energy.
  • Micro & nano-flows or bio-flows.
  • Novel technologies e.g. fuel cell, ceramic blades.

Plenary and special speakers will be invited to address the symposium and some special sessions on recent issues concerning internal fluid dynamics and aerothermodynamics are also planned.
