Preface

The Mechanical Engineering Congress, 2017 Japan (MECJ-17) was held from 3rd to 6th, September, 2017 in Saitama University. There were 2 keynote lectures, 3 research workshops and several organized and general sessions related to the fluid engineering division. In addition to presentations, evaluation of the best presentation award of the fluid engineering division has been also conducted in this conference, and 3 graduate students won the prize.

The issue of this Newsletter is “The Mechanical Engineering Congress, 2017 Japan (MECJ-17)”, and totally 5 articles related to this conference are reported. The articles are contributed by the speakers of keynote lecture, and 3 winners of the best presentation award of the fluid engineering division. The articles from professors provide deep insight and milestone from their longtime experience of research. In contrast, the articles from the winners of the best presentation award imply their daily active research. We hope that these articles are informative for engineers and researchers, and help to make research communication beyond generations and share the activities of the fluids engineering division in the future.

Finally, we would like to thank all the authors for their contributions.

Masaaki Motozawa and Sadao Kurosawa
