Internal flow of gas turbine

One of the main research topics of Fluids Engineering Science Laboratory is analysis of complex internal flow fields related to turbomachinery, including vortex structures such as tip leakage vortex, flow separation, aerodynamic noise, and inception of rotating stall, by using large-scale numerical simulations of turbulent flows. The laboratory also works to develop three-dimensional aerodynamic design for rotating blades of turbomachines and novel imaging measurement technique using molecular sensors for EFD analysis.
