THMT Symposium

Turbulence, Heat and Mass Transfer Symposium

THMT Symposium, which began with the Joint ICHMT/IUTAM Symposium on Structure of Turbulence, Heat and Mass Transfer that was held in Dubrovnick in 1980 and reviced in 1994, has now evolved into a regular ICHMT triennal Symposium, held previously in Lisbon, Portugal (1994), Delft,The Netherlands (1997), Nagoya, Japan (2000), Antalya, Turkey (2003), Dubrovnick, Croatia (2006), Rome, Italy (2009), Palermo, Italy (2012) and Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina (2015).

The Symposium aims providing a forum for scientists and engineers from industries and academia for presenting the
state-of-the-art, recent advances and future prospects in the research of turbulence related to heat and mass transfer.

Major topics and new trends are introduced through keynote lectures given by internationally recognized experts.
