Here is a list of current research topics at the Gas Dynamics Lab:

  • Stereoscopic visualization of turbulent boundary layers: click here:
  • MHz rate imaging on elliptic cones in Mach 8 flow using Filtered Rayleigh Scattering
  • High Reynolds number pipe flows (follow the sublink to SuperPipe).
  • High Reynolds number Testing Facility: a wind tunnel for very high Reynolds number flows
    (follow the sublink to SuperTunnel or HRTF).
  • Control of Taylor-Couette flows
  • Supersonic combustion and mixing (follow the sublink to the supersonic combustion facility).
  • Compressible turbulence
