Turbulence and Vortex Dynamics

The Turbulence and Vortex Dynamics (WDY) group addresses fundamental questions in fluid dynamics in an integrated approach.

Our fascination for fluid dynamics is based on the beauty and complexity of flow phenomena and further fueled by its omnipresence in current-day technologies. 

Our research group addresses fundamental questions in fluid dynamics through statistical fluid mechanics, large-scale computations and dedicated laboratory experiments with modern optical diagnostics for detailed flow measurements. Our motivation is the desire to unravel the fundamental properties of these phenomena and systems and use that knowledge to help solve challenges for industry and the environment.
