8th International Symposium on Ultrasonic Doppler Methods for Fluid Mechanics and Fluid Engineering


September 19-21, 2012, Dresden, Germany

Organization: S. Eckert, S. Franke, D. Räbiger, Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf


The ultrasound Doppler method has been successfully established for fluid flow measurements in many scientific and industrial applications. Recent trends are the analysis of spatio-temporal and multidimensional flow structures, large-scale measurement in environmental hydraulics, studies of industrial flows such as liquid metal or multi-phase oil flows, and the development of advanced methods for in-line process-control monitoring of rheological properties in flowing food suspensions.

We invite you to submit abstracts to

  • Fundamental Flows
  • Applied Flows
  • Environmental Flows
  • Liquid Metal Flows
  • Flow Metering
  • Flow Mapping
  • Signal Processing and Methodology
  • Acoustic Characterization
  • Ultrasound Spectroscopy and Microscopy

Keynote lectures
