Flow Visualization Lab

Melissa A. Green, Ph.D., Assistant Professor
Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Syracuse University  

In the Flow Visualization Lab, we use both qualitative observations and quantitative flow measurements to investigate and characterize the dynamics in vortex-dominated hydrodynamic flow fields. The applications of this work include the interaction of static structures with a freestream flow, for applications in civil engineering and aircraft structures. We also study the interaction of active structures that create complex flow fields such as the oscillation of wings, fins, and flukes for swimming and flying.

We are interested in finding strategies and solutions for mitigating unwanted unsteady forces, while taking advantage of constructive interactions that can lead to efficiency in a range of systems.
