Fluid and Aerodynamics

Organisational unit: Research Grouping

Organisation profile

The Fluid and Aerodynamics Research Group at Bristol is led by Dr Ann Gaitonde and Dr Dorian Jones and continues the University's long history of major contributions to computational fluid dynamics and experimental aerodynamics. Research priorities include:

  • Reduced order modelling (ROM)
  • Bio-inspired flight
  • Applied fluid mechanics 
  • Mesh deformation and mesh generation
  • Optimization
  • Computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
  • Experimental aerodynamics (PIV, wind engineering)
  • Load alleviation
  • Aeroelasticity (flexible aircraft)

The Fluid and Aerodynamics Group has contracts with major UK aerospace companies, and collaborative links with many international research insititutes. Members of the group work with colleagues in other disciplines across the university including Earth Sciences, Applied Mathematics, Engineering Mathematics, Biological Sciences and Biomedical Sciences.
