Course programme

Researchers at the Engineering Mechanics Unit are now occupied in one or more of these absorbing research activities: Observing in our wind tunnel how an insect flies and why this is different from the flight of an aircraft; Analysing how different flows undergo a transition from laminar to turbulence, and why small changes in some quantities have a huge effect on the answers. We address this problem in aerospace, chemical (non-Newtonian, multiphase) and biological (e.g. blood) flows; Asking why certain rocks have particular formation patterns; Computing micro and nanoscale flows, to find out why they are different from the flows we see everyday; Understanding more about vortex dynamics, nonlinear dynamics and chaos; Finding out how flows of particulate matter (such as sand) are different from the flow of liquids; Understanding air-flow and temperature patterns in the Earth's atmosphere near the ground and their effect on weather; Seeking patterns or order that may be present in India's monsoon rainfall, or other atmospheric variables; Exploring whether the development of turbulent shear flows is governed by stability considerations; computing how radiation and turbulence may interact with each other in the lowest layers of the atmosphere at night.
