Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

Power and Propulsion

Research in this area encompasses aerospace propulsion and its environmental impacts, combustion and thermophysics.  In aerospace propulsion, particular emphasis is placed on turbomachinery, spray combustion, combustion instability, innovative engine cycles, colloidal propulsion, compressible turbulent mixing and noise emissions. The topic of combustion and thermophysics addresses the fundamental fluid-dynamical, heat-transfer and chemical mechanisms governing combustion in diverse settings.
