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:

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.

    Institutional access to articles published after 31 Dec 2017 no longer possilbe

    The institutional access for members of the TU Darmstadt to articles in Elsevier journals published after 31 December 2017 is no longer possible. The ULB has established an „Elsevier Service Group“ which will procure scientific papers from Elsevier formerly available in full text on alternative ways (interlibrary loan, commercial document delivery services, open access publications).
