Quantitative Flow Visualization for Fluid and Turbulent Flow Studies

Professor Dabiri's Fluid Dynamics Research Facility develops novel measurement systems, most recently 2D and 3D Digital Particle Tracking Velocimetry (2DPTV & 3DPTV). With these and other novel methodologies that allow for high-resolution and global measurements of fluid flows, we reveal new in-depth fundamental understandings in fluid mechanics that would have otherwise not been possible. Our lab applies these methologies towards studies in the following:

  • Aerodynamics
  • Hydrodynamics
  • Laminar and turbulent boundary layers, transition, separation, and flow control
  • Experimental approaches to turbulence modeling
  • Wake flows
  • Micro-flows and cardiovascular flows
  • Aero-acoustics
