Professor P. Lavoie

Flow Control and Experimental Turbulence Laboratory

Research Focus
• Study of transitional and turbulent flows, including flow structures and instabilities associated with these phenomena
• Investigating the fundamental dynamics of attached and separated shear layers and how these can be manipulated to improve flow characteristics

Current Projects
• Collaboration with Bombardier to investigate different sources of airframe noise and how these can be mitigated
• Active control of turbulent boundary layers in order to reduce skin friction drag
• Study of unsteady aerodynamic effects due to gusts and sudden maneuvers for application to unmanned aerial vehicles
