Welcome

Institute for Fluid Mechanics and Aerodynamics

 

Research

The research portfolio at the Institute for Fluid Mechanics and Aerodynamics can be divided into three main topical groups:

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.

Teaching

Locations

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

    Talk im Tower WS 2017/18

    Natur, Geschichte und Technik des Fliegens

    Die Vortragsreihe „Talk im Tower“ auf dem August-Euler Flugplatz in Griesheim bietet wieder interessante Einblicke in die Luftfahrthistorie. Die Luftfahrthistorikerin Ursula Eckstein gibt am 26. Oktober Einblicke in das Leben des Flugsportpioniers Ernst Jachtmann. Interessante Berichte zur Luftfahrttechnik werden Prof. Dr. Andreas Dillmann (am 16.11.2017), Wolfgang Binz (14.12. 2017) präsentieren. Klaus List (15.02. 2018) berichtet mit Bildern und Impressionen von seiner Flugreise zum Nordkapp. Dr. Bernd-Rüdiger Ahlbrecht, ein profunder Kenner der Berliner Flughafengeschichte, wird am 15.03. 2018 einen historisch spannenden Vortrag über die DVL-Anlagen in Adlershof halten.

    Short Course on Atomization and Sprays

    February 19-22, 2018

    The Profile Area TFI organizes a new edition of the Short Course on Atomization and Sprays, to be held February 19-22, 2018. The course has the aim to present the current understanding and state-of-the-art of atomization fundamentals, their realization in atomizer systems and their application in a wide variety of engineering branches, including spray drying, spray coating, spray cooling, fuel injection, etc.
