About Our Lab...

The Unsteady Flow Physics and Aeroacoustics Laboratory at Stanford University is a research group in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics directed by Dr. Sanjiva K. Lele. It is our goal to advance the state of the art in computational and theoretical fluid dynamics, with a particular emphasis on problems of practical interest to aerodynamicists and aerospace engineers. We work closely with the Flow Physics and Computational Engineering group within the Department of Mechanical Engineering as well as the Center for Turbulence Research.

Current research focuses include: simulations of shock turbulence interaction, shock / boundary layer interaction, compressible shear flows, aeroacoustics, jet noise, transition to turbulence, aircraft vortex wakes and condensation trails, and numerical methods. Our research efforts are supported by a number of government and private organizations including the US Department of Energy, the US Department of Defense, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Federal Aviation Administration, NASA, and Boeing.

This website is designed as a platform for the exchange of information. Research within the Unsteady Flow Physics and Aeroacoustics Laboratory is open to peer review. When appropriate, papers, figures, movies, and data will be available, provided proper credit is given to the original author(s). Questions regarding this policy should be directed to Dr. Lele.
