The research serves the investigation of different flow processes in nature and technology. For this purpose, experimental measurement techniques in wind and water channels as well as numerical flow simulations are used. The latter also involves the development of improved modeling approaches and numerical simulation techniques.
In particular, interested

  • Turbulent flows, especially at high Reynolds numbers,
  • multiphase turbulent flows (particles, drops and bubbles) as well as especially
  • Multiphysics tasks such as Fluid-structure interaction.


The professorship also has a laboratory equipped with modern flow measurement techniques (including LDA, PIV, CTA, DIC), including a water and wind tunnel. Furthermore, own parallel computing clusters are operated for the development and validation of numerical simulation methods. For computation-intensive simulations of, for example, turbulent flows, there is access to the HPC cluster of the HSU and other high-performance computers (for example LRZ and HLRB Munich or HLRS).
Together with the university’s central facilities, it provides comprehensive equipment for fluid mechanical experiments and for the numerical simulation of flow processes.
