Creation of new value: future outlook of mechanical engineering

Mechanical Engineering Congress, 2016 Japan (MECJ-16) was held for four days from September 11th to 14th at Ito Campus of Kyushu University. The opening word, which is a slogan of MECJ-16 at this year, reflects strong consciousness of the future role for The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME).

In the field of fluids engineering, there were 2 keynote lectures, 3 workshops, 22 organized and general sessions, 1 civic forum and 2 advanced technology forums. The discussions were very active like last year. This special issue of the congress contains articles by speakers of 2 keynote lectures and 2 workshops.

In this special issue, unlike the previous years, articles were selected and collected into a single issue for improvement of content qualities. This selection process was quite difficult for us because all the speakers in the keynote lectures and workshops provided high quality presentations. We hope that this issue is more attractive for researchers and engineers in the field of fluid engineering. Finally, we would like to express appreciation to all the authors for their great contributions.

Keynote lecture by Prof. Yasuhiko Sakai (Nagoya University)

Hiroyuki Fujii, Hiroshi Yokoyama, Daisuke Watanabe
