The Thermal & Fluid Sciences Affiliates Program (TFSA) is the industrial liaison program of the Flow Physics and Computational Engineering Group and Thermosciences Group of the Mechanical Engineering Department at Stanford University. The program was started over 45 years ago to establish and maintain close ties between the Stanford faculty and engineers in industry. The program serves as a two-way conduit of recent research findings and industrial problems which motivate new research.

The program is administered at the faculty level and emphasizes person-to-person communication between the Stanford faculty and the industrial representatives. To request additional information, including access to the private section of the website, please contact us.
