Professors Earn Grants for Fluid Mechanics
Three Clark School mechanical engineering professors have earned four-year Office of Naval Research awards for work in fluid dynamics.
Professors Amir Riaz and Elias Balaras are co-PIs on a $900,000 award for "Direct and large-eddy simulation of air bubble and water droplet generation in turbulent boundary layers."
Professor Jim Duncan is principal investigator on an $806,000 award for "An Experimental Investigation of the Hull Boundary Layer."
The two research projects investigate air entrainment and spray production along the hull boundary layer of a naval ship.
