Fluid Mechanics

Lead by Professor Patricia J. Culligan, the department's research in fluid mechanics focuses on fluid and contaminant transport in porous media systems, with an emphasis on:

  • Experimental investigation of fundamental transport processes
  • Scaling laws for physical modeling of fluid and contaminant transport
  • Particle transport in porous media
  • Nano-scale transport processes
  • Visualization systems for flow and transport
  • Theoretical modeling of flow and transport
