About ASCHT 2017


The Asian Symposium on Computational Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow (ASCHT) was organized in Xi’an, China, in 2007 with the intention of encouraging scientific and technical cooperation and exchange among Asian countries. The forum is held every two years to activate not only scientific and technical communication but also to promote friendship among members. The 6 th ASCHT will be held at the IC&SR Auditorium, IIT Madras, India, from 10 th to 13 th Dec 2017. This conference is the sixth in the series of biennial symposia that started in Xi’an, China (2007), and were subsequently held in Jeju, Korea (2009), Kyoto, Japan (2011), Hong Kong, China (2013) and Busan, Korea (2015).


This conference aims to provide an international forum for presentation, and exchange of ideas and creation of knowledge in recent advances on various aspects of theories, analyses, and applications of computational methods in theoretical and engineering aspects of fluid and thermal sciences. The symposium includes invited keynote lectures by distinguished experts from across the globe. There will be plenary sessions and a large number of parallel technical sessions spread over the conference period. It will bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, research institutions and industry to exchange experiences, disseminate up-to-date information, and explore new opportunities in the field; in particular, it will expose young and new researchers to the state of the art in the field. The organizers sincerely believe that the 6 th Asian Symposium on Computational Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow-2017 (ASCHT’2017) will serve to stimulate researchers while also furthering cooperation among investigators in the field of thermo-fluid science and engineering.





Call for papers


Original papers that deal with all aspects of CFD and computational heat transfer either qualitative and/or quantitative in nature are solicited. Topics include but are not limited to:


  •   Computational heat transfer and fluid dynamics
  •   Computational multi-component and multiphase flow
  •   Computer simulations for reducing CO2 emission
  •   Numerical micro/nano fluid dynamics and het transfer
  •   Numerical bio-fluid dynamics and heat transfer
  •   Numerical methods in multi-scale and multi-physics modeling
  •   Numerical methods in radiative heat transfer
  •   Industrial heat-transfer applications
  •   Uncertainty analysis of numerical results
  •   Optimization in thermal sciences using numerical results
  •   Parameter estimation and inverse problems in thermal sciences

Selected papers from ASCHT’2017 will be further reviewed and published in special issues of peer reviewed journals in fluid dynamics and heat transfer, the names of which will be made available in due course of time.





Abstract Submission


Papers will be selected based on one page abstracts (A4, single space, Times New Roman letters of 10 font size) including results and figures. Papers submitted should include the title of the paper, authors’ names and affiliations, a concise statement of the problem, method of approach, results and discussion, and conclusions. Please identify the corresponding author. Electronic submissions are strongly encouraged. A submission template will be available in December 2016.


ABSTRACT SUBMISSIONS start on 17th January 2017. (e-mail address to which abstracts have to be submitted will be made available in December 2016.)
