Aerospace Engineering Associate Profs. Daniel J. Bodony has been elected as Associate Fellows of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).
Bodony’s research interests are
- Fluid structure interaction
- Computational fluid mechanics
- Numerical algorithms for compressible turbulence on massively parallel computers
- Fluid Structure Interaction
- Compressible turbulence
- Flow stability and control
- Fluid-thermal-structure interaction (aerothermoelasticity)
- Large scale parallel computing
- Fluid mechanics of compressible fluids
- Aeroacoustics (sound generated by turbulent flows)
Bodony has earned three degrees in aeronautics and astronautics – a bachelor’s and master’s of science from Purdue University in 1997 and 1999, respectively, and a PhD in 2005 from Stanford University. He came to the AE at Illinois in 2006, and has affiliate positions with Computational Science & Engineering, Mechanical Science & Engineering, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, and the Parallel Computing Institute.
Bodony earned a CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation in 2012, and that year was named a Tau Beta Pi Eminent Engineer.
He is regularly included on the campus-wide list of Teachers Ranked as Excellent, and was named the Aerospace Engineering Teacher of the Year in 2008, 2010 and 2012.
