Automotive Aerodynamics

A snapshot of the instantaneous vertical velocity on the x-z-plane at y=0.2m from the reconstructed field (above) and the original field (below).

Teamleader: PD Dr.-Ing. habil. Thomas Indinger

Automotive aerodynamics studies the aerodynamic optimization of motor vehicles. Besides con- ventional cars, trucks, racing cars, and recently more and more vehicles with alternative types of propulsion >> More

High-Speed Aerodynamics

Instabilität eines rauigkeitsinduzierten Querströmungswirbels in eine Hochenthalpiegrenzschicht

Teamleader: apl. Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Christian Stemmer

The high-speed aerodynamics group is mainly concerned with the investigation of the laminar-turbulent breakdown in hypersonic boundary layers. For Mach numbers above 10 as they are common place in re-entry scenarios at high altitides (40-60km), generally >> More

Complex Fluids

Teamleader: PD Dr.-Ing. habil. Xiangyu Hu

Our reseach is focused on computational multi-physics and multi-scale fluid dynamics, which is expanding beyond the traditional realm of computational fluid dynamics. “Multi-physics” suggests that the flows are coupled with multi-phase, chemical reaction, electric/magnetic field, radiation, >> More

NANOSHOCK - Manufacturing Shock Interactions for Innovative Nanoscale Processes

Teamleader: Dr.-Ing. Stefan Adami

The flow of liquids or gases is fundamental to most technical applications and natural phenomena. Among the most intriguing fluid dynamics events are shock waves, discontinuities in the macroscopic fluid state that can lead to extreme temperatures, pressures and concentrations of >> More
