MFMHMT 2014: The 2014 International Conference on
Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics,
Heat and Mass Transfer

Interlaken, Switzerland, February 22-24, 2014

About the Conference

* The 2014 International Conference on Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Heat and Mass Transfer is an international forum for scientists, engineers, and practitioners to present their latest research and development results in all areas of Mechanics, Elasticity, Fluid Mechanics, Aerodynamics, Heat and Mass Transfer, Environmental Engineering and their advanced applications in real life.
* The Conference has a distinguished Organizing Committee, Steering and Program Committee with extensive academic qualifications, ensuring that the conference maintains high scientific standards and has a broad international coverage.  All the papers are subject to peer, thorough, strict review by committees' members or 2 or 3 additional reviewers. The names of the Organizing Committee, Steering and Program Committee members and reviewers appear always in the Proceedings (Hard-Copy Books + CD) and you can see them in http://www.europment.org/library .  All the Proceedings of 2013 are available in http://www.europment.org/library
* The proceedings of 2014 will be also available later in http://www.europment.org/library
*  Interlaken is an important and well-known tourist destination in the Bernese Oberland region of the Swiss Alps, and the main transport gateway to the mountains and lakes of that region. It is not unusual for a town to be on a river, lake or an ocean, but for it to sit between two lakes may well be unique. Interlaken - between lake thun and lake brienz - can boast such a privileged position.
