Welcome to the new homepage of the AIAA Fluid Dynamics Technical Committee (FDTC).

The FDTC represents members interested in the fundamental behaviors of liquids and gases in motion and their desired control in contexts relevant to aerospace systems and applications, across the full range of speeds from subsonic to hypersonic, as well as interdisciplinary fluid dynamics in areas such as bio-fluid flow, materials processing, aeroelasticity, propulsion, aerothermodynamics, aeroacoustics, MEMS, electromagnetics, and heat transfer.

Advance fundamental understanding of Fluid Dynamic Behaviors and Basic Principles across the full spectrum of aerospace applications through:

  • Experimental, Theoretical and Computational Discoveries
  • Advanced Prediction Methods and Validation
  • Innovative Flow Control Concepts and Techniques

Define, engage and explore Interdisciplinary Interfaces through:

  • Interdisciplinary, Inter-TC, and Inter-professional initiatives in areas such as materials processing, bio-fluidics, intelligent systems, and others

Expand the horizon for aerospace applications of fluid dynamics through:

  • Discovery, technical contributions, technical assessments, outreach and advocacy
  • Defining physical limitations and possibilities
  • Balancing possibilities with realizabilities
