Forum 2000: Fluid Properties for New Technologies, Connecting Virtual Design With Physical Reality



James C. Rainwater, Daniel G. Friend, Howard J. Hanley, Allan H. Harvey, C D. Holcomb, Arno R. Laesecke, Joe W. Magee, Chris D. Muzny


Forum 2000 was held at the 14th symposium for Thermophysical Properties, with all symposium attendees invited. The Forum addressed the present needs and prioities for thermophysical properties measurements and the challenges facing the experimental community. Seven distinguished experts presented brief overviews of issues related to a wide variety of subjects, and three discussion periods were held. Topics included whether simulation can replace experiment, properties needs for new miniaturization techniques, real life problems such as nuclear waste cleanup, data needs for electrolyte systems and new generations of electric power plants, and data needs for unconventional materials such as molten metals and soft solids.
