About JSFM 

The Japan Society of Fluid Mechanics (JSFM) originated from a voluntary party of researchers working on fluid mechanics in 1968.  The objectives of the society were to discuss about scientific and engineering problems relevant to fluid motion among researchers working in Physics, Engineering and the interdisciplinary fields and to assist in their research activities.  The JSFM published “NAGARE”, a Japanese journal of Fluid Mechanics as a valuable information source for researchers and university students interested in fundamental problems of Fluid Dynamics as well as its applications.

The JSFM was re-born in 1982 to extend the activity of the society more widely and internationally and was approved as an official academic society by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan in 1993.  Today the JSFM has a membership of about 1,500, including professors, research scientists, engineers and graduate students.
In addition to “NAGARE”, “Fluid Dynamics Research” whose first volume was published in 1986 is also the official journal of the JSFM.  “Fluid Dynamics Research” is a well-established international journal of Fluid Mechanics, published six times per year by IOPP (Institute of Physics Publishing) on behalf of the JSFM since 2009.

The JSFM organizes two conferences every year; the Annual Conference of Fluid Mechanics in autumn and CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) Symposium in winter.  At each conference, participants exceed 500 and more than 300 papers are presented.  The JSFM also supports Asian Conference of Fluid Mechanics which is held every two year in Asian countries.
