UK Fluids Network Newsletter
Issue 19 (13/7/18)
Formatted version attached
Welcome to Issue 19 of the UK Fluids Network newsletter, a regular
summary of the Network's activities and news from the UK Fluids
To receive this newsletter, please sign up to the mailing list at
We welcome your input and comments, or suggestions for new content in
the newsletter – please use the form on https://fluids.ac.uk/connect or
email info at fluids.ac.uk.
GDPR and the missing fluids researchers (Repeat)
In order to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR),
which came into operation on 25 May, we emailed everyone who was
registered on the UKFN website beforehand, to obtain their consent to
display their personal data on the Directory page and, by extension, to
list them as SIG members (which relies on having registered).
We had a surprisingly good response, with approximately 800 out of 1100
users either clicking on the email link or confirming directly. However,
this means that the missing 300 people will not appear in Directory
searches and – perhaps more visibly – will be absent from the member
lists of SIGs they belong to, until we have received their consent.
If you have not given your consent you can restore your visibility on
the UKFN website:
• Either click on your version of the link that was emailed to you
previously (it is of the form
‘https://fluids.ac.uk/users/terms/accept/123’), whereupon you will be
taken to the UKFN home page and your response acknowledged;
• Or email Nick Daish directly at info at fluids.ac.uk.
2. UK Fluids Network mailing list (Repeat)
Important: the mailing list operates independently of the list of
registered users, i.e. you will remain on the mailing list, and continue
to receive this monthly newsletter and the weekly bulletin (see below)
whether or not you gave consent on personal data use, since the mailing
list only requires your email address, which is not made public.
As noted above, we have started a weekly bulletin, which is sent to the
mailing list each Friday afternoon. It is a useful way to circulate
time-critical messages (in addition to Twitter) on a weekly basis in
between the monthly newsletters.
Please send any items for inclusion in the weekly bulletin by Friday
noon at the latest by emailing info at fluids.ac.uk. Posts made to the
‘All’ mailing list by members will not be circulated directly, but the
contents will be added to the weekly bulletin.
Posts will be repeated in the regular monthly newsletter, if still
3. UK Fluids Network photo/video competition #4
We are pleased to announce a new photo/video competition.
This competition will not have a specific theme, so all fluids-related
photos and videos are eligible.
As ever, the best photo and video will each receive a prize of £200, and
the winners are chosen with a combination of popular vote and panel of
judges. Full details may be found on https://fluids.ac.uk/competition/.
The closing date is 31 July 2018.
4. ERCOFTAC Osborne Reynolds Day 2018
Registration is free (https://tinyurl.com/or18-final-extn-register) but
there are a limited number of places left.
The winner of the prize for best oral presentation at Osborne Reynolds
will be nominated for inclusion in the pan-European Da Vinci Prize
competition, which is held as part of the ERCOFTAC Autumn Festival,
(https://www.ercoftac.org/events/ercoftac_autumn_fest/), this year
taking place in Warsaw, 18-19 October 2018.
5. UK Fluids Conference 2018
Registration remains open, but the early bird rate is no longer
Further news will be publicized in the newsletter, on the UKFN website
and via Twitter.
6. Short Research Visits (https://fluids.ac.uk/srv)
Any UK fluids researcher – PhD student, postdoc, PI, industrial
collaborator – can apply for a Short Research Visit grant to spend 1-2
weeks with another researcher or group, and UKFN will cover up to £1000
of your travel, subsistence and accommodation expenses. Previous visits
have been used to develop a mathematical model, share an experimental
facility or advance a numerical technique. The SRV page on the website
contains full details of how to apply, plus summaries of all SRVs and
reports on completed visits.
The next deadline for SRV proposals is 31 July 2018.
