Save the Date: American Physical Society Division of Fluid Dynamics (APS-DFD) Annual Meeting in Denver, Nov. 19-21

Fluids will be in full flow at the annual meeting covering the physics of fluid dynamics with topics including squirts from citrus fruits, bubbles in beer, snoring sounds, rain-spread pathogens and more.

Newswise — WASHINGTON, D.C., November 7, 2017 -- The fluid properties of liquid, gases and even particles are constantly at work in our lives and around us. Covering topics including citrus fruit microjets, sinus pathways for drug delivery, the spread of pathogens by rain, and even beer bubbles, the Division of Fluid Dynamics meeting will uncover unique and puzzling mysteries of fluids and their applications. Fluid dynamics presentations will fill the rooms of the Colorado Convention Center this month at the annual gathering of the most forefront fluid flow research. The meeting also includes numerous workshops, focus sessions and the annual Gallery of Fluid Motion, which highlights the visually enticing aspects of fluid dynamics with artistic images and videos submitted by attendees. 

The 70th meeting of the American Physical Society Division of Fluid Dynamics (APS-DFD) will be held Nov. 19-21, 2017, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. The meeting will showcase over 300 presentations on the applications of fluid dynamics in nature, engineering, technology and human health. Reporters are invited to attend in person for free (see details below). Journalists may also remotely access meeting information with DFD Virtual Pressroom, which will go live shortly before the conference begins. Live media webcasts featuring a selection of newsworthy research will take place Monday, Nov. 20; time and topics to be announced. For descriptions of all presentations, see the APS DFD 2017 Program at
