27th Scottish Fluid Mechanics Meeting

Sponsored by:


The 27th Scottish Fluid Mechanics Meeting will be hosted by the Vortex Dynamics group of the School of Mathematics & Statistics at the University of St Andrews on Thursday 15th May 2014. Dantec Dynamics have kindly agreed to sponsor this event once again.

The meeting will be informal and contributions on any aspect of fluid mechanics (or related subjects) are very welcome. Graduate students and early career researchers are particularly encouraged to attend. The meeting is an excellent opportunity to present their work in a relaxed setting.

We encourage poster submissions, as well as talks, in order to give as many people as possible the opportunity to showcase their work.
