The University of Manitoba is proud to be hosting the 26th Annual Conference of the Computational Fluid Dynamics Society of Canada! The conference will take place June 10-12, 2018 in Winnipeg, Manitoba.


Rapid advances in computing technology have made CFD an increasingly important tool for predicting and analyzing heat, mass and fluid flows, with applications to mechanical, aerospace, civil and chemical engineering, and to water resources, oceanography, atmospheric environment, and boundary-layer meteorology. The Conference will encourage and promote collaborative research by bringing together CFD experts from academic, government and industry to discuss current and future issues in the development and application of CFD.

CFD2018 will feature the following two themes:

Theme I:

Computational fluid dynamics and numerical heat transfer (oriented towards engineering flows).

Theme II:

Computational environmental flows and transport phenomena (oriented towards environmental flows: water resources and atmospheric sciences).

Contributions from all sectors are solicited, across the full spectrum of CFD research and applications including, but not restricted to:

For Theme I:

Aerodynamics and Aero-acoustics Chemical Reacting Flows and Combustion Multi-phase Flows
Automotive Engineering Fluid-Structure Interactions Porous Media
Algorithms Heat and Mass Transfer Non-Newtonian Flows
Bio-fluid Mechanics Industrial Applications Turbulence and Turbulence Modeling
CFD Education Mesh Generation

For Theme II:

Atmospheric Environment and Sciences Environmental Transport Phenomena< Oceanography
Boundary-layer Meteorology Hydraulics and Hydrology Wind Engineering
Environmental Flow Hydrogeology and Water Resources
