Journal Club

In this Journal Club, students and CTFM members meet to discuss and critically evaluate recent and classical articles in the academic literature on thermo-fluid mechanics. This student led activity is conducted monthly  and provides for continuous development in thermo-fluid mechanics beyond academic courses. If you are interested in leading the discussion of an article then please contact Prof Ostilla Monico at

The Journal Club meets once every month in the Engineering Building 1 (EB1). For Fall 2019 the meeting will be on Friday from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm. The detailed schedule is listed below.
