It is our distinct pleasure to invite you to the 4th International Seminar on Non-Ideal Compressible-Fluid Dynamics for Propulsion & Power, which will be held on 3rd-4th November 2022 at City, University of London in the United Kingdom.
Now in its fourth iteration, NICFD 2022 is intended to promote the exchange of scientific information, to encourage and consolidate the interaction between researchers and professionals, with a special emphasis on the progress in research, development and applications of the topics related to the field of propulsion and power.
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.
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 growing interest towards NICFD in the last decade, motivated by its advanced applications in the field of propulsion and power, has led to a growth in the research field. The purpose of this conference is to promote the exchange of information among the quite diverse community, whose interests span from the fundamentals to industrial applications.
