Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference
The 23rd Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference will be hosted by the University of Sydney on 4-8 December 2022 in Sydney, Australia.
Pawsey launched CFD community of practice
The Community of Practice, which aims to give CFD practitioners using supercomputers the opportunity to share their knowledge and experiences while remaining connected around High Performance Computing topics.
Australasian Fluid Mechanics Seminar Series
The AFMS has introduced an online Fluid Mechanics research-seminar series to allow our community to benefit from participation in research seminars during a time of social distancing and travel restrictions.
AFMS Photo and Video Competition 2020
The 2020 competition's winning photos and videos are now available in the Gallery of the Australasian Fluid Mechanics Society.
Fluid mechanics is the analysis of fluid flows. The air flowing in our lungs, the blood flowing in our veins, the lava erupting from a volcano, the air flowing over an aircraft wing, water flooding from a dam and the chemicals mixing in a pharmaceuticals plant are all examples of flowing fluids. Fluid mechanicians aim to understand fluid flows, predicting, adapting and harnessing flows for practical applications.
Members of the Australasian Fluid Mechanics Society provide service to aerospace, automotive, biological, chemicals, defence, energy, environmental, food, maritime, medical, mining, pharmaceuticals, sports, and water industries. We teach biomedical, civil, chemical, environmental, and mechanical engineers, applied mathematicians, meteorologists and oceanographers, continuing a 50-year-old tradition of excellence in Australian and New Zealand fluid mechanics.
Our 350-plus members are taking on the greatest challenges of our time in water, food security, energy, health, transportation, weather prediction and climate change, under the overarching imperative of sustainability.

Research Associate, Experimental and Computational Stent Testing
The University of New South Wales, Sydney
The role of Research Associate will allow you to undertake a range of activities around bench-top and computational stent design testing including 3D printing vessel replicas, facilitating and liaising with cardiovascular surgeons for bench-top in vitro stenting, micro-CT imaging and image reconstruction for computational modelling. This position will give you the opportunity to develop your research skills and output across contributing to the writing of scientific papers and reports for international journals, participating in conferences and workshops, actively engaging with industry partners, and supervising honours and HDR Students.
Closing Date: Friday, 3rd December 2021
Two Postdoc and Three PhD Positions - Liquid Hydrogen Safety
The University of Melbourne, Victoria
The University of Melbourne is seeking two postdoctoral research fellows and three PhD candidates on liquid hydrogen safety. The project, funded by Fortescue Future Industries, investigates the behavior of liquid hydrogen upon uncontrolled release to the environment during transport and storage. Due to the deep cryogenic state (-253°C), liquid hydrogen can condense all gas components in air. The process involves complex coupling of heat and mass transfer, phase change, and turbulent flow. The coexistence of liquid oxygen and hydrogen presents significant fire hazards.
Closing Date: Friday, 3rd December 2021 for Postdoc positions, PhD positions open until filled
Postdoctoral Research Associate - Controlling Coastlines While Generating Power
Swinburne University of Technology, Victoria
As the Postdoctoral Research Associate, you will have the opportunity to work on Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Project LP180101109, "Controlling coastlines while generating power", led by Swinburne University of Technology. This exciting project aims to produce strategies for protecting coasts from storms using wave-energy-converter machines, which also generate electricity. Increasing lengths of coast need protection as the climate changes, but conventional fixed barriers create serious environmental impacts and are a sunk cost usually borne by the taxpayer.
The Project expects to derive strategies for the setting of each machine in an array or ‘farm’ of many machines, so that they collectively absorb or reflect damaging waves under severe conditions, while sustaining natural processes and generating electricity under normal conditions. You will undertake mathematical modelling, such as integration of nonlinear ordinary differential equations in both fluid dynamics and control-engineering contexts. You will also be required to undertake significant project-management work, coordinating the theoretical, laboratory and ocean-environment research undertaken at Swinburne and by our university and industry partners.
Closing Date: Friday, 26th November 2021
