Our Research

Turbulence

Our research group investigates physical aspects of turbulence and turbulent flows using high-fidelity numerical simulations.

Aeroacoustics

We study noise generation from aerodynamic flows including airframe noise (landing gear and airfoil) and jet noise, with focus on intalled jets.

Aerodynamics

We develop and employ numerical methods for the investigation of unsteady aerodynamics. Flow applications involve flapping airfoils, dynamic stall and unsteady loads on airfoils.

Reduced-order modeling

Our group develops and applies numerical methods for reduced-order modeling with applications in aeroacoustics and aerodynamics.

Fluid-structure interaction

We develop novel numerical formulations for the investigation of fluid-structure interaction problems.

Numerical methods

We employ accurate numerical methods for studying unsteady flows involving physical phenomena with a large disparity in spatial and temporal scales.

About Us

group-research-members

Our research interests include the fields of fluid mechanics and numerical simulation. We work with the development of numerical tools and their application to engineering problems involving turbulence, unsteady aerodynamics, compressible flow and aeroacoustics. See more details in "Research Projects".

Prof. William Wolf is the coordinator of the Laboratory of Aeronautical Sciences in the School of Mechanical Engineering at University of Campinas, Brazil. Several graduate and undergraduate students develop research projects in the laboratory (see "Lab Members").

Our lab is equipped with a high-performance computer cluster and several workstations used for pre and post-processing of data obtained from numerical simulations.
