Computational Fluid Dynamics 2004
This book contains the Proceedings of the Third International Conference on Computational Fluid Dynamics (ICCFD), held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada fromJuly12through16,2004.TheICCFDserieshasevolvedintotheleading international conference series for scientists, mathematicians, and engineers interestedinthecomputationof?uid?ow.Invitedkeynotelecturesweregiven by renowned researchers in the areas of detached-eddy simulation, micro-?ow simulations, control of shocks, multiscale models of the circulatory system, and high-end computing in aerospace. Abstracts were received from 23 countries. The executive committee, c- sisting of C. Bruneau, J.-J. Chattot, D. Kwak, N. Satofuka, K. Srinivas, and myself, was responsible for selection of papers. Each of the members had a separate subcommittee to carry out the evaluation. As a result of this ca- ful peer review process, 123 papers were selected for oral presentation and a further 67 for poster presentation. The conference was attended by 172 delegates from 22 di?erent countries. Thanks are due to our sponsors, NASA and the Institute for Aerospace Research of the National Research Council of Canada. In particular, the generous grant from NASA is a key factor in the success of this conference series. I would also like to thank the sta? at the Westin Harbour Castle, all who participated in the organization of the conference, including the review process, and the students of the CFD group at the University of Toronto InstituteforAerospaceStudiesforthetremendoushelptheyprovidedtoward the success of this conference.
