Theme : "Mechanical Engineering Congress, 2018 Japan (MECJ-18)"
The Mechanical Engineering Congress 2018 Japan (MECJ-18) was held from 9th to 12th, September, 2018 in Kansai University. The conference has the keynote lecture from Prof. Mochizuki of Toyo University, a civic forum, 4 research workshops and several organized and general sessions related to the fluid engineering division.
The issue of this Newsletter is “The Mechanical Engineering Congress 2018 Japan (MECJ-18)”, and totally 7 interesting articles related to fluid engineering are reported. The articles are contributed by the speakers of the keynote lecture, 3 workshops entitled “Technical section on plasma actuators,” “EFD workshop: Flow control” and “Visualization of blood flow”. The importance of the flow control technologies and the bio-engineering technologies has been growing in recent years. The articles in this Newsletter provide the deep insight for the development of these technologies. We expect that these articles are informative for engineers and researchers, and help to share the activities of the fluids engineering division in the future.
Finally, we would like to thank all the authors for their contributions.
