Abstract: The theme of these Proceedings is “Advancements in Aerodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, and Hydraulics.” As indicated by the title, the subject crosses disciplinary boundaries and deals with flow of diverse fluids such as air, water, oil, or granular media within or around boundaries representing buildings, hydraulic structures, pipelines, and rivers, to give but a few examples. The papers in these Proceedings were presented at the ASCE interdivisional conference, June 3-6, 1986, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. One purpose of the Conference is to summarize and disseminate information on the state-of-the-art of flow analysis and flow system design as it related to civil engineering practice. Engineering practice requires, more than ever, basic knowledge in the engineering sciences, and it is for this reason that basic fluid flow concepts and advanced methods of analysis, numerical and experimental, are dealth with extensively. Aerodynamics, fluid mechanics, and hydraulics are based on the sample principles. Engineers, researchers, and educators working in the three areas often have received identical education from the same institutes of advanced learning, but are working on different applications. Mutual benefits from the sharing of experience and technology can be expected. The papers are presented in three main categories: (1) Topical areas of turbulence measurement and modelling, computational fluid mechanics, vortex flow, and physical modelling; (2) cavitation and two-phase flow, flow over bodies and fluid-structure interaction, and architectural aerodynamics; and (3) environmental fluid mechanics, sedimentation, granular flow, pipelines, stratified flow, and porous media flow.
