Organization profile

Organisation profile

The research of the Fluid Mechanics Section focuses on aerodynamics, aero-acoustics and aero-elasticity of wind turbines and turbulence in wind farms.

The fundamental research in fluid mechanics includes laminarturbulent transition, flow control, aero-acoustics, rotating flows, turbulence, and convection and heat transfer in boundary layers.

In recent years, most activities have concentrated on research in offshore wind energy such as the development of computing codes for predicting the combined loadings from wind and waves, and wake interaction within wind farms.

The research is carried out using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), employing in-house developed as well as commercial computing codes, and experimental fluid mechanics (EFD), employing mostly optical methods, such as Laser Doppler Anemometry (LDA), Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) and related techniques.
