Fluid and Aerodynamics

The Fluid and Aerodynamics Research Group addresses challenges arising from the fundamental nonlinearity of fluids, and their interaction with the natural and human environment. We are building on a long history of major contributions to computational fluid dynamics and experimental aerodynamics.

Research interests

As an inter-disciplinary group, we seek to extend capability in analysis, simulation and measurement of fluid flows, drawing on expertise in Earth Sciences, Applied Mathematics, Engineering Mathematics, Biological Sciences and Biomedical Sciences.
