The fluid dynamics… of the nose
We talked to Maurizio Quadrio, PhD, Professor of Fluid Dynamics and Turbulence at the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology and Mercator Fellow at the Karlsruher Institute of Technology.
His research work combines experiments and numerical simulations to study turbulent flows confined by a wall with a special interest in reducing turbulent friction drag. He uses Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) to develop friction reducing techniques; this is often used as a tool for investigating wall turbulence and a better understanding of the physics involved.
