Description of Research:

Co-directed by Professor Emeritus M. B. Bragg, Professor M. S. Selig, Professor J. Craig Dutton and Professor G. S. Elliott. Subsonic aerodynamics research is conducted in the laboratory's three subsonic wind tunnels. Supersonic aerodynamics research is conducted in the labs blow-down wind tunnel and focuses on laser flow diagnostics. In recent years, research activities have included airfoil ice accretion effects, low Reynolds number airfoils, motorsports aerodynamics, and propeller aerodynamics.
