Program - 90th FED Anniversary


The Fluids Engineering Division (FED) of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) was founded in 1926 as the Hydraulic Division of the Society. Following the advances and trends in the field, the name of the Division was changed to the Fluids Engineering Division (FED) in 1962. Nine years later, the Division launched its own journal, the Journal of Fluids Engineering, which is now considered as one of the leading journals in the subject of engineering applications of Fluid Mechanics. Every year the Division organizes several conferences, meetings, symposia and fora that enjoy high reputation worldwide.

Today, the membership of the Division extends to most of the countries in the world and spans all the Continents. In celebration of the 90th anniversary of the founding of FED, several special events are planned during the Fluids Engineering Division Summer Meeting (FEDSM), July 10-14, 2016 in Washington, DC. During the FED banquet, the Division will recognize, with a specially designed medal, several distinguished Engineers and Scientists who have contributed significantly to the advancement of the science and practice of Fluids Engineering.  Other special events include the FED History Lecture, Plenary Lectures, the Freeman Scholar Lecture, a Lecture by the President of the National Academy of Engineering, and a panel discussing federal funding in fluids engineering.

We invite you all to come to the FEDSM-2016 and participate in our 90th Anniversary Celebration.
