The Aerodynamics Group
Welcome to the Aerodynamics group at KTH Aeronautical and Vehicle Engineering!
Our research and educational activities are focused on investigating and solving important aero-acoustic and aerodynamic issues. These include challenging topics such as sound generation from submerged inlets, active flow control for drag reduction, wake characteristics of high-speed trains, sound propagation in flow-ducts, low-noise landing gear solutions, thermo-acoustic instabilities in combustion systems, noise from cooling fans, unsteady crosswind aerodynamics of road vehicles, morphing aero-engine nacelles and noise from small-scale wind turbines. This is achieved by using and developing accurate reliable numerical methods such as detached-eddy simulation, wave expansion method, dynamic mode decomposition and hybrid aeroacoustics methods.
We strive to maintain a holistic view of our work, and to connect our research to other areas such as vehicle dynamics, structural dynamics and environmental impacts assessment. We teach in courses at bachelor, master and doctoral level and aim to build a synergetic connection between our research and educational activities.
Most of our research is conducted in collaboration with industrial partners, and we have extensive experience of successfully undertaking national and European projects. We are a core disciplinary group within the Centre for ECO2 Vehicle Design and the Linné FLOW Centre at KTH.
