Hydrodynamics and Aerodynamics Laboratory

HAL conducts research towards novel applications of fluid mechanics, particularly aerospace, including flow control, UAV design, and bio- fluid mechanics. Our primary diagnostic tools are optical and non-intrusive in nature, including Digital Particle Image Velocimetry. We also use flow visualization and other classical tools, such as hot-wire anemometry, laser-Doppler velocimetry, and Pitot probes - in other words, the best tool for the task at hand. The lab includes wind tunnels, water tunnels, gas turbine rigs, bench top set ups and computational facilities, including a cluster for CFD.
