First Announcement and Call for Papers


in conjunction with the ASME PVP Division Conference July 22-26, 2001, Hyatt Regency, Atlanta, Georgia, USA

- abstract submission: October 27, 2000

- draft paper submission: January 12, 2001

- final paper submission: April 13, 2001

SCOPE: Modern industrial applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics require the solution of complex fluid-flow problems in conjunction with equipment design, process and product development. For the successful solution of these problems, a high degree of coordination between industrial CFD engineers, software developers, consultants and academic scientists is necessary. This symposium, to be held for the third time, addresses these issues by focussing on computational modeling of industrially relevant fluid flows in interaction with participating media (solid confinements, porous structures, dispersed phases, plasmas, etc.) and physical/chemical phenomena (diffusion transport, thermal stress, flow induced vibrations, electromagnetic transport, heat generation & dissipation, electrophoresis, phase change, combustion, CVD, chemical reactions, etc.). Participation from the industry is especially encouraged.

SYMPOSIUM HISTORY: The Symposium was held for the first time July 1998 in San Diego, California, in conjunction with the 1998 ASME/JSME Pressure Vessels and Piping Division Conference. It immediately became the largest Symposium of the Conference, with 16 Sessions, during which 66 contributed and 6 keynote papers were presented by authors from industry, academia, CFD consultants and software vendors, representing 20 different countries. Papers were published in two separate volumes, ASME- PVP 377-1 and 377-2,which can be ordered from the ASME ( The second Symposium was held August 1999 in Boston, Massachusetts, in conjunction with the 1999 ASME Pressure Vessels and Piping Division Conference. This time, the Symposium had grown to 20 sessions, during which 72 contributed and 6 invited keynote papers were presented by authors from 22 countries. In addition, a panel session on "modern trends in industrial computational fluid dynamics and physics" was organized. Papers were published in ASME volumes PVP- 397-1 and PVP-397-2 which can be ordered from the ASME catalog ( From 2001 on, the Symposium will continue as a bi- annual "International Symposium on Computational Technologies for Fluid/Thermal/Chemical Systems with Industrial Applications".

TOPICS: Specific topics may include (but are not limited to):

- The use of CFD in hardware design, process optimization and product development applications in industry;

- Large-scale numerical studies with industrial applications;

- Advanced turbulence modeling and Large Eddy Simulations for industrial flows;

- Modeling of fluid-solid interactions via conjugate heat transfer, thermal stress or load coupling;

- Integration of complex physics and/or chemistry into CFD;

- Coupled multi-scale (microscopic-macroscopic) modeling and multi-scale model integration;

- CFD code interfacing (code-to-code, grid-to-grid, flow to stress, etc.) and integrated code development;

- Object oriented CFD code architecture and CFD command languages;

- Grid generators and pre-processors;

- Novel solvers, codes and algorithms, numerical accuracy analysis;

- CFD implementation for model based control;

addressing single and multiphase, laminar and turbulent flows, free surface flows, flows with phase transition, molecular flow, plasma flow etc.

Applications may stem from, amongst others:chemical process industry; automotive & aerospace industry; - manufacturing industry; energy conversion & combustion; micro-electronics industry; biological & environmental studies; nuclear industry; pharmaceutical & medical industry, etc.

KEYNOTE LECTURES: During the past two (1998 and 1999) Symposia, invited keynote presentations were given by, amongst others, Prof. Brian Spalding (CHAM), Prof. David Gosman (Star- CD), Dr. George Bache (AEA/CFX), Prof. S. Maruyama (Tohoku University), prof. Y. Matsumoto (The University of Tokyo), Dr. Ellen Meeks (Reaction Design), and Dr. A. Krishnan (CFDRC). They addressed various novel developments in process and structure integrated CFD. For the third Symposium, invitation will be extended to prominent CFD experts from various branches of industry and academia, to present keynote lectures on the application of process and structure integrated CFD in industrial design and optimization problems.

TUTORIALS AND SOFTWARE DEMONSTRATIONS: Tutorials are being planned and CFD software demonstrations will be organized at the Conference. Please contact the corresponding organizers with proposals.

DATES AND LOCATION: The Symposium will be held in conjunction with the ASME Pressure Vessels and Piping Division Conference, July 22-26, 2001, at the Hyatt Regency, Atlanta, Georgia, USA (

(Other "fluid related" Symposiums at the PVP Conference anticipate approximately 110 presentations, on topics such as Flow Induced Vibrations, Fluid-Structure Interactions and Wave and Blast Propagation. Other "non-fluid related" Symposiums at the PVP Conference anticipate approximately 800 papers, covering different aspects of Finte Element Stress Analysis, Fatigue, Crack Propagation, Non- destructive Evaluation, Pressure Vessels Design, ASME Codes, Piping Technologies, etc. Most papers at ASME-PVP Conferences are application-oriented, and many of them are presented by industrial researchers.)

PAPERS AND PUBLICATION: Contributed papers will be accepted based on submitted abstracts and peer-review of full papers. Accepted full papers will be published in ASME Conference Proceedings bound volumes, which will be available at the Conference. In principle, all accepted papers will be invited for oral presentation at the Symposium. Authors of accepted papers are expected to participate in the Symposium and to personally present their paper. Submission of student papers is strongly encouraged.


- Submit abstracts, using Fax, e-mail or (courier) Mail, by October 27, 2000, to the appropriate Symposium Organizer;

- Authors of accepted papers will be notified by November 13, 2000;

- Drafts of full papers are due January 12, 2001, for review;

- Authors will be notified of reviewers comments and final paper acceptance by March 5, 2001;

- Final papers are due April 13, 2001.
