Institute for Fluid Mechanics and Aerodynamics
The research portfolio at the Institute for Fluid Mechanics and Aerodynamics can be divided into three main topical groups:
- Dynamics of drops and sprays
- Flow control and unsteady aerodynamics
- Modelling and simulation of turbulent flows
whereby a strong interaction among experimental, theoretical and numerical investigative methods is present in almost all individual projects. In all research projects, whether fundamental or applied in nature, a strong emphasis is placed on a solid understanding of the underlying flow physics involved. Where necessary and appropriate, new methodologies are developed, be it measurement technologies, turbulence modelling, or analytical methods.

The Institute has two locations: Lichtwiese Campus (L2|06) and the wind tunnel premises in close proximity to the August-Euler-Airfield in Griesheim.
