11th International Conference on Flow-Induced Vibration

4th - 6th July 2016, hosted by TNO.

Flow-induced vibration and noise and the physical parameters which control them are of significant importance to design engineers and operators of systems in a wide range of industries ranging from aerospace, automotive and civil engineering to marine structures, electricity generation and chemical processing. The potential of these phenomena to cause catastrophic failure to engineering systems and unacceptably high levels of environmental and occupational noise has required that significant effort be dedicated to understanding and mitigating against these challenges in the interests of human safety.

The first conference in this 'FIV' series began in 1973 at Keswick, England in response to the needs of the nuclear industry. Subsequent conferences have evolved into major international events with a continually wider scope of papers in the field of fluid-structure interaction. The conference is held every four years with the 8th and 9th international FIV conferences being held in École Polytechnique, Paris and in Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Prague respectively. The most recent in the series was held in Dublin in 2012, where 200 participants were attracted from around the world with every continent represented.

Over the past four decades, noise in confined or bluff body flows has emerged as a related and equally problematic issue to flow-induced vibration. For this reason, flow-induced noise is a significant additional theme in this conference. One of the key aims of the meeting is to bring both the flow-induced vibration and the flow-acoustic interaction communities together to exchange ideas and to identify common interests and skills.

We are delighted to invite you to participate in the 11th International conference on Flow-Induced Vibrations to be held in The Hague, The Netherlands in July 2016.
