Fluid mechanics is one of the oldest and broadest fields of engineering. It encompasses aerodynamics, hydrodynamics, vortex dynamics, gas dynamics, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), convection heat transfer, flows of turbomachinery, acoustics, biofluids, physical oceanography, atmospheric dynamics, wind engineering, and the dynamics of two-phase flows. Modern design of aircraft, spacecraft, automobiles, ships, land and marine structures, power and propulsion systems, or heat exchangers is impossible without a clear understanding of the relevant fluid mechanics.
Virginia Tech's Fluid Mechanics faculty comprises some of the nation's top researchers in this dynamic field. The purpose of our site is to provide you with a survey of the expertise found here in beautiful Southwest Virginia. Whether you are a prospective graduate student, a prospective undergraduate student, or a practicing engineer looking for expert advice, we hope you will find these pages helpful.
