The mission of CeFPaC is to conduct research in flow physics, prediction, modeling, and control. The center focuses on a combination of basic research aimed at verifying or developing theories for fluid dynamic behavior, and the application of these theories towards controlling flows. The research involves a large variety of macro and micro flow fields including laminar and turbulent boundary layers, jets, shear layers, wakes, airfoils, finite wings/blades, inlets, and UAVs. The center’s main three thrusts are in the following areas: (i) Aerodynamics of aerial and underwater vehicles, (ii) wind energy (smart wind turbine blades), and (iii) Building integrated wind (smart buildings).
