Experimental Gas Dynamics

The working group deals with experimental fundamental research in the field of compressible external, internal and boundary layer flows. Another focus is the optimization of necessary short-term measurement methods and the further development of experimental facilities.

Activities Gas Dynamic Test Facilities

Basic research

  • Laminar-turbulent boundary layer transition
  • Shock-boundary layer interaction at supersonic inlets
  • Modal analysis of fluctuations in boundary layers and in free flow

Measurement techniques

  • Further development of hot-wire anemometers
  • Development of transient heat flow sensors
  • Short-time measurement technology
  • Optical methods
