First Circular 

The Aeronautical Society of India (AeSI), a professional society for promoting growth of Aeronautics in India formed the CFD Division on August 11, 1998. This division serves as a formal set up for overseeing and coordination of conferences, colloquia, symposia and other technical meetings with a view to promoting research and development in industrial, academic and commercial areas of CFD.  The CFD division organizes a CFD Symposium every year on its foundation day.  This annual festival is an important event every CFD scientist looks forward to with great interest.  The 15th Annual Symposium is scheduled to be held on 9th and 10th August, 2013 in Bangalore.  This year’s symposium is expected to be benefited by the presence of a few leading CFD researchers and practitioners.  The CFD Division will be pleased to receive contributed papers from India and other countries as well. Students and young researchers are encouraged to participate in the symposium.  Few fellowships for the students, who are not supported by their parent institution, presenting paper, are available to meet registration, travel and local expenses. The present Executive Committee of Ae.SI CFD Division has been formed under the Chairmanship of Dr. K.P. Singh, ADA, Bangalore.  This Committee consists of Co-Chairmen, General Secretary, Treasurer and Members representing various R&D organizations in the country.

Computational Fluid Dynamics
The fundamental basis of almost all CFD problems are the Navier–Stokes equations, which define any single-phase fluid flow. These equations can be simplified by removing terms describing viscosity to yield the Euler equations. Further simplification, by removing terms describing vorticity yields the full potential equations.
