Frontier on Computational Fluid Dynamics in Industrial Problems
It is well known that multi-scale and multi-physics flow problems arise in industry and they might make designs be very difficult. For such problems, advanced computational fluid dynamics (CFD) should be employed. In the present symposium, state of the art in CFD will be presented for various industrial problems, and the information exchange will be enhanced.
Dr. Makoto Yamamoto received his BS, MS and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Tokyo in 1982, 1984 and 1988, respectively. He previously worked at the IHI Corporation in Tokyo as an aerodynamic design engineer of a jet engine for about 3 years. Then he joined the Tokyo University of Science in 1990. Since 2004, he has been a professor. In the university he was a dean of the Faculty of Engineering from 2009 to 2010, and a vice president from 2014 to 2018. Since 1980s’, he has been investigating modeling of flow physics and its application to engineering flow problems, and recently he has been focusing on multi-physics flow problems in engineering, especially in a jet engine. Moreover, he is now challenging predictions of aneurysm rupture and surgery operations such as coiling and stenting. He published more than 200 technical papers, more than 400 proceedings papers and 19 books (in Japanese). He is a member of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineering (JSME), the Gas Turbine Society of Japan (GTSJ), the Japan Society for Computational Engineering and Science (JSCES), the Japan Society of Fluid Mechanics (JSFM), the Japan Association of Computational Mechanics (JACM), the International Association of Computational Mechanics (IACM) and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). He served a lot of Executive Committees of the societies, and for his distinguished works he has received 12 awards from the societies in Japan.
