Aerodynamics/Aerothermal Effects

Mitigating extreme heating is arguably the most important challenge in the design of hypersonic vehicles. With many years of research experience in laminar-turbulent transition, turbulence, aerother-modynamics and thermal physics, the Purdue team provides a suite of tools to help vehicle designers meet this challenge. This group also offers unique hypersonic wind tunnel facilities and experience in running computations on the largest computers in the world.
