The 9th JSME-KSME Thermal and Fluids Engineering Conference (TFEC9) was held from 27 to 30, Oct., 2017 at Okinawa Convention Center of Ginowan City, Okinawa. The conference has plenary lecture, 12 organized sessions, general sessions and 2 joint sessions of thermal and fluids engineering from the fluid engineering division. The schedule was forced to change due to the influence of the typhoon, but information exchange was actively carried out by researchers and experts from both countries.

 This issue of the newsletter is “The 9th JSME-KSME Thermal and Fluids Engineering Conference” , and totally 5 articles related to this conference are reported. Articles are contributed by Prof. Yu Fukunishi of plenary lecturer and 4 recipients of the best presentation award of the fluid engineering division. The article from Prof. Fukunishi provides a topic based on his longtime of research. In addition, the articles from the young researchers argue their latest research politely. It is expected that articles are informative for engineers and researchers, and help to share the activities of the fluids engineering division in the future.

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

Tokitada Hashimoto, Shoichi Matsuda, H.J. Park
