FLUIDS RESEARCH IN FOCUS
New Law of Fluid Mechanics
Researchers in A&A’s Computational Fluid Mechanics Lab discovered a new law of fluid mechanics, a branch of physics, that will aid the future of aircraft design. The “Law of Incipient Separation” defines the maximum slope of an aircraft fuselage to avoid the separation of airflow that increases pressure-drag.Read more

A&A senior and Brooke Owens Fellow
Cat Hannahs made it to the Husky 100! As Chief Engineer of SARP, she leads the team of 150 students in the design, manufacturing, testing of a student-developed bipropellant rocket. She supports technical decisions and integration across avionics, propulsion, structures, and payload sub-teams. We are cheering for her and the whole SARP team for this year's launch on June 19th.
"During my time at the UW, I have been able to thrive as an engineer and gain hands-on knowledge outside the classroom, which will serve me in pushing the human boundaries of space exploration."Read more
