NICFD 2022




The 4th International Seminar on Non-Ideal Compressible-Fluid Dynamics for Propulsion & Power (NICFD 2022) will be held on 3rd-4th November 2022 at City, University of London in the United Kingdom.

Now in its fourth iteration, NICFD 2022 will bring together researchers and scientists from various application areas who are pioneering theoretical, numerical and experimental advancements in the fluid dynamics of compressible reactive and non-reactive flows of fluids for which the ideal gas law does not apply.

The themes range from the theoretical foundations, to advanced numerical and experimental practices, and to applications. The conference provides an exciting opportunity to share, learn and discuss the latest insights.

Key themes of the conference include the following areas:

  • Experiments
  • Fundamentals
  • Numerical methods
  • Optimisation and UQ
  • Critical and supercritical flows
  • Turbulence and mixing
  • Multi-component fluid flows
  • Applications in ORC power systems
  • Applications in supercritical CO2 power systems
  • Steam turbines
  • Cryogenic flows
  • Condensing flows in nozzles
  • Cavitating flows
  • Super and transcritical fluids in space propulsion

Submissions outside these areas that may be of interest are welcomed.
