The 8th International Symposium on Flow Visualization

  • Carlomagno G. M. 


The 8th International Symposium on Flow Visualization (8ISFV) was held in Sorrento, Italy, from the 1st to the 4th of September 1998. The Symposium has attracted, by far, the largest number of participants in the history of the meeting. The 313 presented papers were distributed in 65 Technical Sessions which covered a very broad range of topics.

At the beginning of each working day, four invited speakers, selected among renewed specialists, addressed Keynotes Lectures in plenary sessions. Prof. Ronald J. Adrian related on theDecomposition of turbulent fields and visualization of vortices and turbulent momentum transport, Prof. G. E. A. Meier describedNew optical tools for fluid mechanics, Prof. Hiroharu Kato treated aResearch on cavitation mechanism by high-speed video and holographic observations and Prof. Antonio Cenedese reported on theEulerian and Lagrangian velocity measurements by means of image analysis.

During the Symposium three Awards were delivered to outstanding scientists in the field of Flow Visualization, namely: the Ernst Mach Award to Prof. Yoshimichi Tanida, the Leonardo da Vinci Award to prof. Wolfgang Merzkirch and the Asanuma Award to Prof. Wen-Jei Yang.
