Aerodynamics and Propulsion

wind tunnel

Researchers in this area address fundamental and practical issues dealing with the flow of gases and liquids. Research involves both computational and experimental methods that address a wide variety of physical problems such as turbulence, the interaction of fluids and solids, high speed flows, multiphase flows including aircraft icing, and supersonic and hypersonic flow.
