The conference is supported by ERCOFTAC through the Special Interest Group on Non-Ideal Compressible Fluid Dynamics (SIG-49) and is organised by a team of leading international experts in the field of NICFD flows.
Now in its fourth iteration, the International Seminar on Non-Ideal Compressible-Fluid Dynamics for Propulsion & Power is one of the leading international conferences dedicated to the study of compressible fluid flows of fluids that do not obey the ideal gas law.

The Thermo-Fluids Research Centre at City
The fourth iteration of the International Seminar on Non-Ideal Compressible-Fluid Dynamics for Propulsion & Power (NICFD2022) is proudly hosted by the Thermo-Fluids Research Centre (TFRC) at City, University of London.
The TFRC is an internationally leading centre in fundamental and applied research in fluid flow, heat and mass transfer and fluid-structure interactions. The centre’s computational tools and experimental facilities are devoted to conducting research in a range of applications from micro-scale devices to waste heat recovery, renewable energy systems, compressors, turbines, fuels and additives technology for a wide range of combustion engines, electrification technologies and various hydraulic/lubrication fluids and systems.
The centre is currently leading and participating in a number of national and international research projects focused on aspects related to NICFD flows. This includes UK funded EPSRC projects investigating ORC (NextORC) and supercritical CO2 (SCOTWOHR) power cycles, the EU-funded projects SCARABEUS investigating novel CO2-blends for CSP plants, alongside other funding from the Royal Academy of Engineering and industrial partners.
