Fluid Mechanics



Ground test of Heat Protection System
with Arc-heated Wind Tunnel

This laboratory aims to develop high-performance CFD technique for all flow mach numbers, i.e. incompressible flow around a wind turbine, transonic flow around an airplane and supersonic/hypersonic flow around a planet-entry vehicle, including the development of modeling complex flow phenomena.


Professor Ken-ichi Abe
Assistant Professor Hisashi Kihara

The Main Research Topics

  • Turbulence and Turbulent heat-transfer Modeling
  • Application of CFD to Complex Turbulent Flow Fields
  • High-temperature Fluid Dynamics with Arc-heated Wind Tunnel
