Report on the first European Mechanics Colloquium, on the Coanda effect

  • R. Wille (a1) and H. Fernholz (a1)

The first in a new series of European research conferences in mechanics was held in Berlin on 5 and 6 April 1965. The subject was the Coanda effect, or boundary layers and jets on highly curved walls. Participation was restricted to about 40 people, invited on the basis of their active interest in the subject. These Colloquia are intended to have an informal, workshop-like, character, and formal papers are not normally available, nor will any full proceedings be published. The first author was the chairman of the Colloquium. The following account of the scientific developments of the Colloquium has been prepared to make them widely available. The references quoted give further details of the work discussed at the Colloquium and of related previous work.
