Research

Research and teaching in fluid dynamics. Mission is to carry out research and provide teaching at a high academic level and directly link knowledge and applications to the solution of society's major problems nowadays, i.e. transition to a sustainable/resillient society, and contribute to a planet on which all living beings have space to live in healthy eco-systems and are treated with respect. In additional to the many technical applications I am intrigued by nature and the way in which all natural beings are perfectly adapted to the fluid mechanics and heat transfer of their natural habitat.

Research themes in the group Engineering Fluid Dynamics are:

  • Rotating flow machines
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics Algorithms and Design
  • Aeroacoustics and Aerodynamics
  • Biomedical Fluid Mechanics
  • Fluid Mechanics of Functional Materials
