Aero- and gasdynamics
Aero-dynamics is a generic term for the knowledge of forces and movements in gases. The opposite is hydrodynamics, which describes movements in fluids.
Traditionally, aerodynamics is associated with aviation, which is a narrow definition.
Our group has aerodynamic research related to:
(Flow and forces which acts on boats and flow connected to astronautics)
- Buildings constructions
(static and dynamic forces on bridges and building, ventilation of road-tunnels),
- Sport and aerodynamic problems connected to renewable energy
- Windturbines and tidal powerplants.
The work is both theoretical, numerical as well as experimental research in our large laboratory.
