Research Interests

Fluid dynamics, aerodynamics, compressible flow: Our group uses the Emil Buehler Supersonic Wind Tunnel to study flow physics and control in a varied number of applications. Current research topics include controlling a supersonic projectile’s trajectory using laser energy deposition, investigation of three-dimensional shock/boundary layer interactions, and measurement of the near wake past bluff bodies. Our measurement capabilities include schlieren imaging and particle image velocimetry.
