Projects per year
My research uses experimental and analytical techniques to give physical understanding and to inform low-order models of unsteady flow. This is of particular importance to engineers designing new technologies where the unsteady component of the flow is substantial, e.g. tidal turbines and urban air taxis. In these cases, resolving the full unsteady flowfield using Computational Fluid Dynamics is prohibitively expensive. Neglecting unsteady effects in these scenarios and computing the time-average will lead to inaccurate design calculations. Using experiments to inform low-order models, however, enables accurate, low-cost design calculations.
