New SIG Mathematical Fluid Mechanics was approved by SPC at the meeting during Spring Festival 2023 on the 12th May 2023.
The proposed SIG
The aim of the MFM SIG is to establish a scientific contact platform for academic researchers, scholars and application oriented people working in the area of mathematical modeling in fluid mechanics. The MFM SIG would like to provide theoretical background, skills and expertise in rigorous analysis of mathematical models and tools used in various fields of applied fluid mechanics.
Motivation & Landscape
The research and development in fluid mechanics is one of the key factors driving the boom in associated business applications. Experimental techniques and numerical methods have helped to significantly advance and broaden the knowledge of various fluid mechanics based phenomena. However the dramatically increasing amount (and high-resolution) of experimental data and numerical results available, forces everyone to reconsider the investigation strategies and modeling approaches. There is a need to increase efficiency, robustness and reliability of mathematical models and methods in use. The problems of well-posedness of mathematical models, existence, uniqueness or stability of their solutions became a crucial factor in actual state of the art as well as future development of the mathematical modeling. Although mathematics is not in the core of ERCOFTAC activities, it is certainly an essential cornerstone in the foundations of all mathematical models and tools being used.
The MFM SIG is planning to organize regular conferences and summer schools, complemented by topical workshops in collaboration with other, more practically and application oriented SIGs:
The MFM SIG is established as a scientific contact platform for academic researchers, scholars and application oriented people working in the area of mathematical modeling in fluid mechanics. The MFM SIG provides theoretical background, skills and expertise in rigorous analysis of mathematical models and tools used in various fields of applied fluid mechanics.
The SIG should appoint two Coordinators, whose role is to initiate and manage the activities of the group. There should be one senior (Chair) and one junior (Deputy), and they must belong to organisations that are ERCOFTAC members.
