The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Birla Institute of Technology Mesra, in the waterfall city of Ranchi, India is organizing a two-day International Conference on Thermo-Fluids and System Design (ICTFSD) 2024 from 04-05 April 2024, supported by the Science & Engineering Research Board (SERB), Govt. of India. The conference is multidisciplinary in the broad areas of Mechanical Engineering that will serve as a platform to exchange innovative ideas, and experiences among the participants from around the globe. The eminent experts from the top universities will deliver (keynote) lectures covering the broader scope that would be beneficial for the participants from academics, industry (including R&D), and scientists from various organizations. ICTFSD 2024 covers a broad spectrum related to fluid flow, heat transfer, energy engineering, materials engineering, mechanical design and process optimization in science and engineering.

The 1st International Conference on Thermo-Fluids and System Design (link to ICTFSD 2022) was a success due to a good participation from academicians and industry personnel from India and 6-7 countries from Asia, Africa and Europe. There were a number of keynote lectures delivered on latest areas in Mechanical Engineering from eminent personalities in India and the US, and selected high quality papers were published in special issues of several reputed international journals and proceedings. We look forward to carry the same momentum and make the upcoming event of ICTFSD 2024 a grander one with a higher reach across the globe. Details of ICTFSD 2024 will be gradually posted on the website. Prospective participants are requested to regularly visit the website for updates.
