Call for Papers

   The 13th International Conference on Hydrodynamics (ICHD’2018) will be held in Incheon, Korea on 2-6 September, 2018.
    The first International Conference on Hydrodynamics (ICHD) was initiated in 1994 in Wuxi, China. Since then, 12 more ICHD conferences were held in Hong Kong, Seoul, Yokohama, Tainan, Perth, Ischia, Nantes, Shanghai,  St  Petersburg,  Singapore,  and Egmond  aan  Zee.  Evidently  the  ICHD conference  has  become  an  important  event among academics, researchers, engineers and operators, working in the fields closely related to the science and technology of hydrodynamics. The coming ICHD’2018 conference will be hosted and organized by Seoul National University (SNU).
    We invite you to join the 13th International Conference on Hydrodynamics, and all of you will be warmly welcome to Incheon, Korea.




    Conference Themes

       The conference will cover all issues related to all fields of hydrodynamics, including in ship and ocean engineering, mechanical engineering, and civil engineering. Specific themes include but are not limited to:


    · Theoretical hydrodynamics

    · Linear and non-linear waves and current

    · Ship and naval hydrodynamics, including    resistance, propulsion, power, seakeeping,    manoeuvrability, slamming, sloshing, impact,    green water, wake flow, ….

    · Cavitations and cavity flow

    · Ocean, coastal engineering

    · Fluid-structural interactions and hydroelasticity

    · Hydraulic engineering

    · Industrial fluid dynamics

    · Computational fluid dynamics (CFD)

    · Ocean and atmosphere dynamics

    · Environmental hydrodynamics

    · Advanced experimental techniques


   Particularly we strongly encourage the participation  from  non-marine  engineering fields, such as mechanical, civil, aero, and bio fluid engineering.
