MISSION

The mission of the Unsteady Flow Interactions Laboratory is to discover the fundamental physics behind unsteady flow phenomena and fluid-structure interactions that occur in engineering and throughout nature. We integrate fast in-house numerical tools with state-of-the-art experimental techniques to generate new understanding of phenomena at the intersection of fluid mechanics, solid mechanics and biology. Our research has broad applications to bio-inspired underwater vehicles, unmanned aerial systems, aircraft, rotorcraft, marine hydrokinetic turbines, and wind turbines.
