Fluid and Aerodynamics

Fluid Aerodynamics logo

The Fluid and Aerodynamics Research Group undertakes world-leading computational and experimental research involving fluid flows.


Areas of key current research include:

  • Computational aerodynamics and fluid dynamics
  • Rotorcraft aerodynamics
  • Incompressible flows
  • Aeroelasticity and loads
  • Adaptive and morphing structures
  • Wind tunnel testing
  • Bio-inspired fluid mechanics
  • Experimental fluid mechanics

The group continues the University's long history of important contributions to computational fluid dynamics and experimental aerodynamics.

The Aerodynamics group have contracts with all major UK aerospace companies and collaborative links with many international research institutes.

The group has a proven track record of securing major funding and produces many successful proposals, resulting in innovative and exciting research.
