Fluid dynamics (FD) activity encompasses principally all the spheres related with the applied fluid dynamics. The main theme is to encourage all the relevant novel ideas and research work carried out numerically and through experiments. The application areas include flows inspired from nature and flow analysis around various aerodynamic objects. It also covers the flow analysis carried out in automotive, civil, defense and process industries etc.

Information about the physics of the flow can be obtained from measurements in experimental test facilities or from flow visualization studies. However, there are some limitations and a full picture of flow fields is often hard to obtain from experimental stud0;4567es. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a core research front in fluid dynamics. It is a technique to model and analyze fluid flow using a computer simulation. CFD techniques can be applied to solve industrial flow problems especially in complex flow situations of aerodynamics and hydrodynamics.

The IBCAST will provide an opportunity to the local and foreign researchers to benefit from mutual exchange of ideas, discuss their queries and problems with the experts and to explore the new avenues in active research fronts.
