Fluid Dynamics

An array to measure radiation from a supersonic off-design jet at NASA. The data from the measurement was processed for the purpose of validating predictions of an analytical model developed by Prof. Miller.

Fluid dynamics is the study of the motion of liquids, gasses, and plasmas. We combine analytical approaches with high performance computing to create unique solutions to today’s engineering problems in the aerospace and other industries. There are many subdisciplines of fluid dynamics and we specialize in aeroacoustics. We are interested in all speed regimes that consist of subsonic, transonic, supersonic, and hypersonic flows. Reduced order models or simplified analytical solutions of fluid dynamics are often one key approach to solving these problems.
