ILASS-Americas, the Institute for Liquid Atomization and Spray Systems, North and South America, was established in 1986 as an outgrowth of the International Conference on Liquid Atomization and Spray Systems (ICLASS).
In 2013, we will be celebrating our 25th anniversary and are producing a book on our history.
Membership is open to residents of countries that are part of the American continents. ILASS organizations have also been formed in Europe, Japan, Korea, and Southeast Asia and there is an International Coordinating Council.
We are governed by a Board of Directors and joined by over 950 members that share the same interests and enthusiasm for spray technology.
Members meet annually in the spring at a pivotal conference and showcase nine technical committees that address the applications, analyses, and mechanisms associated with sprays and spray systems. Just some of those include:
- Rocket & Air Breathing Power Fuel Atomization and Industrial Combustion
- Diesel & Automotive
- Agricultural and Industrial Sprays
ANALYSES AND MECHANISMS:
- Computational and Modeling
- Physics of Atomization
- Spray Measurements / Instrumentation
