"Developments of Laser techniques and Applications to Fluid Mechanics"

This series of books includes revised versions of selected papers presented at the International Symposia on Applications of Laser Techniques to Fluid Mechanics, which have been organized in Lisbon, at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, since July 1982 and every two years.

The papers describe Instrumentation Developments and results of measurements of Turbulent Shear Flows, Aerodynamics Flows, Mixers and Rotating Flows, Combustion and Engines, and Two-Phase Flows. The papers demonstrate the continuing and healthy interest in the development of understanding of new methodologies and implementation in terms of new instrumentation.

The prime objective of this series of Symposia has been to provide a forum for the presentation of the most advanced research on laser techniques for flow measurements, and communicate significant results to fluid mechanics. The applications of laser techniques to scientific and engineering fluid flow research have been emphasized, but contributions to the theory and practice of laser methods have been also considered where they facilitate new improved fluid mechanic research. Attention has been placed on laser-Doppler anemometry, particle sizing and other methods for the measurement of velocity and scalars, such as particle image velocimetry and laser induced fluorescence.

The series of Conferences was launched in July 1982, in Lisbon, through a close partnership involving Professors Jim Whitelaw, Imperial College, Franz Durst, University of Erlagen, Ron Adrian, University of Illinois, and Diamantino Durão, IST. Since then, the Conferences have been organized in Lisbon, every two years, based on a close collaboration between the Center for Innovation, Technology and Policy Research, IN+, of the Instituto Superior Tecnico in Portugal, and the researchers mentioned before.

The first three volumes of the series were published through LADOAN, an editorial initiative at IST launched by Professor Diamantino Durão, but since the 4th Symposium, in 1990, the bound volumes have been published through Springer-Verlag, http://www.springer.de
