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.
Please find an overview of SLA courses here.
The Institute has two locations: Lichtwiese Campus (L2|06) and the wind tunnel premises in close proximity to the August-Euler-Airfield in Griesheim.
