    About the organizers:

    The Institute of Hydromechanics has been engaged in research in hydrodynamics, acoustics, hydraulics, and hydraulic engineering since 1963. Currently, active research is underway to explore the feasibility and patterns of movement at the speed of sound. Investigations within the speed ranges characteristic of contemporary underwater and surface vessels have led to the development of novel approaches to manage motion drag and regulate wave generation.

    ERCOFTAC Chairman and SPC Chair will be present at the concluding online session of the conference.

    A​bout the International Conference «Computer Hydromechanics:

    The “Computer Hydromechanics” conference is dedicated to studying possibilities of computer modeling in the field of fluid mechanics, to successful application of certain numerical models for solving scientific and engineering problems. Since its inception in 2008, the conference has attracted scientists and engineers from various fields, from aerospace and energy to medicine and transport, and served as a meeting place of Ukrainian scientists with their colleagues from around the world (Fig. 1):


    Subjects of discussions covered a number of areas:

    • Computer simulation and numerical methods of continuum mechanics;
    • Hydrodynamic stability;
    • Turbulence;
    • Management of vortex structures ;
    • Computer methods for processing the experimental data.

    Evolution of the conference range of topics, 2008-present:

    2008 - first conference. Main themes:

    • - possibilities of numerical methods for solving problems of hydro- and aerodynamics;

    2018 - the conference topics expanded to include:

    • - flow features in microchannels;
    • - modeling of cooling systems;
    • - computer modeling of processes that occur under emergency conditions in nuclear reactors.

    2020 - the mentioned above topics were supplemented with the nanofluid instability modeling.

    Despite the known difficulties that seriously affect scientific activity in Ukraine, the conference remains a forum for scientists supporting their further research enthusiasm and efforts to stay connected with their colleagues.
    Since the martial law does not allow men to leave the country, conferences held in Ukraine are our only practical possibility to stay in touch with the world.
    That is why we would appreciate if our colleagues join us in Kyiv where we could share our knowledge and experience with each other.

    ERCOFTAC provides a well-developed first-class platform for getting acquainted and benefiting from being together.
