Division of Fluid Dynamics
The Division of Fluid Dynamics of the American Physical Society exists for the advancement and diffusion of knowledge of the physics of fluids with special emphasis on the dynamical theories of the liquid, plastic and gaseous states of matter under all conditions of temperature and pressure.
The membership of the Division consists of those members of the Society who have indicated their desire to join the Division and who retain membership from year to year by the payment of designated dues.

News & Announcements
Gallery of Fluid Motion Awards
The Division of Fluid Dynamics is supporting the submission and archiving of fluid dynamics videos for both educational and technical content. Venues for archiving and disseminating videos are discussed in a new page available on the DFD website. In addition, all Gallery of Fluid Motion video entries will be archived in the eCommons/arXiv sytem. Description of how to submit to the arXiv server is described in the aforementioned article.
As part of our record of the past meetings, the invited talks at the annual DFD meeting are archived online as a technical record, and serve as a resource for promoting leading research trends in the area of Fluid Mechanics. Please see the archive for the most recent talks.
