Research in the Laboratory is organized in three main topics and three transverse topics described below.

Topic 1: Turbulence

This theme aims to study and model turbulent flows using both experimental and numerical methods with emphasis on inhomogeneity and non-stationarity in wall bounded flows, wakes, jets and several other flow configurations.

Topic 2: Rotating flows

This theme is focused on the analysis and the modeling of internal or external flows linked to rotating machines (turbo-machinery, rotors, windmills, tidal generators) in degenerated flow conditions.

Topic 3: Flight dynamics in unsteady and non uniform environments

This theme concerns the development of tools and methods (experimental and analytical) to determine the evolving comportment of aircrafts flying with slow speed in a perturbed flight space and/or in a non conventional flight domain.

Transverse Topic: Optical Metrology

This transvers theme is linked to the Lille Optical Metrology Plateform (MéOL) and aims to develop methods and algorithms for the optical measurement in turbulent flows.

Transverse Topic: Active Flow Control

This transverse theme aims at developing active control methods and algorithms for internal and external flows

Transverse Topic: Data Analysis

This topic aims to develop mathematical methods and numerical tools in order to use the data from the numerical simulations, experiments or even the hybridization between these two data sources and to propose algorithms of data analysis, information reconstruction, or modelling.
