Welcome to the official website of 15ACFM, the Fifteenth Asian Congress of Fluid Mechanics (ACFM). 15ACFM will be held at Pullman Hotel, Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia on 21st 23rd November 2016 and followed by a technical visit on 24th November 2016.

The First Asian Congress of Fluid Mechanics (ACFM) was organized in Bangalore, India, in 1980 with the intention of encouraging scientific and technical cooperation and exchange among Asian countries. The 15th Congress now presents an international forum for the most recent developments in theoretical, experimental and computational researches as well as industrial and technological advances in the field of fluid mechanics.

The Congress language is English. The objective of the Asian Congress of Fluid Mechanics (ACFM) is to review recent advancement achieved in the field of fluid mechanics to facilitate the exchange of results and hold discussions on major fluid mechanics problems among fluid mechanics researchers and engineers.
