AERO: Unsteady Aerodynamics: Turbulence and Control

The simulation of realistic flows  and analysis of experimental or numerical databases  for geophysical, industrial or biological applications requires the development of  numerical methods. The AERO group develops fundamental research on advanced  numerical methods in the context of high performance computing (HPC). This work has led to the development of original methods for  flow analysis, prediction and control. 

Research activities in the  AERO group are organized into four research topics:

- Advanced Numerical Methods and HPC, where we develop accurate tools for the simulation of realistic flow and data post-treatment.

- Flow Dynamics, where we develop  techniques for structure identification and investigation of flow instability mechanisms

-Uncertainty Quantification, where we develop probabilistic methods to characterize predictions in the presence of  uncertainty about the system.

- Control, where we develop optimization and control strategies for real-life applications, based on model reduction techniques and estimation procedures.
