UK Fluids Network Newsletter
Issue 7 (3/5/17)
Welcome to Issue 7 of the UK Fluids Network newsletter, a regular summary of the Network's activities and news from the UK Fluids community.
1. Researcher resources, https://ukfluids.net/researcher-resources
A new main menu item, Researcher resources, has been added to the website. It contains an example resource, “Control of fluid flows”, to illustrate the kind of material that can be included – video clips, notes, code snippets, etc – and how it will be formatted. We would welcome your comments. Please contact us if you would like to add resources.
2. Short Research Visits, https://ukfluids.net/srv
The deadline for the next batch of proposals is fast approaching: 31 May 2017. Remember that this scheme is open to academic or industrial fluids researchers at any stage in their career. Up to £1000 is available per visit.
3. Special Interest Groups, https://ukfluids.net/sig
If you are interested in joining a SIG, please contact the SIG leader directly. Contact details of leader/co-leader(s) are on the SIG’s individual page.
Keep watching the calendar of SIG meetings https://ukfluids.net/sig/calendar, accessible from the map page (top-right corner), for the latest SIG meetings and other UKFN-related events.
