Conference Themes

The overall aim of the ICHD Conference is to provide a forum for participants from around the world to review, discuss and present the latest developments in the broad discipline of hydrodynamics and fluid mechanics.

The first International Conference on Hydrodynamics (ICHD) was initiated in 1994 in Wuxi, China. Since then, 9 more ICHD conferences were held subsequently in Hong Kong, Seoul, Yokohama, Tainan, Perth, Ischia, Nantes, Shanghai and St Petersburg. Evidently the ICHD conference has become an important event among academics, researchers, engineers and operators, working in the fields closely related to the science and technology of hydrodynamics. The 11th ICHD will be held in Singapore in 2014.

The scope of the Conference will be broad, covering all the aspects of theoretical and applied hydrodynamics. Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

Seven Plenary Sessions

1 – Sustainable Earth – Ocean Energy

2 – Marine and Offshore Engineering

3 – CFD – Micro and Macro Scales

4 – Catastrophic Events

5 – Management of Rivers and Environment

6 – Sustainable Urban Water Environment

7 – Industrial Fluid Dynamics


Participants of ICHD 2014 are eligible to earn 23 PDU points, awarded through PEB (Professional Engineers Board) Singapore under the Board’s continuing professional development (CPD) programme.
