Vortical Flow and Diagnostics Lab

Located in Randolph 30 and 33. Administered by Todd Lowe

This lab develops advanced laser instrumentation for high speed and high Reynolds number flow studies.  The research is motivated by its relevance to several sponsors including industry and government organizations. We specialize in particle-based instrumentation including advanced laser-Doppler velocimetry, Doppler global velocimetry, and custom fluorescent particle scalar techniques. Recent applications of our instruments and studies have included supersonic jet noise reduction, wind turbine boundary layer aerodynamics, and bluff body flameholder studies.
