Paul Durbin awarded $1 million grant to study wall-bounded turbulence for U.S. Navy

Iowa State University aerospace engineering professor Paul Durbin will lead a $1,000,000 grant from the Department of Defense – U.S. Naval Research Laboratory to study wall-bounded turbulence. As Navy ships cruise through the water at 40 knots, even small objects along the hull such as barnacles, sand, and rivets can create turbulence that will affect … Continue reading Paul Durbin awarded $1 million grant to study wall-bounded turbulence for U.S. Navy

Aerospace professor Paul Durbin uses grants to research computational fluid dynamics

Paul Durbin, Martin C. Jischke Professor of aerospace engineering, received three grants in the last academic year to supplement his research in turbulence and transition in fluid flows. The research grants come from the NSF, NASA and Pratt and Whitney Aircraft Engines. Durbin said the objective of his work is “for engineers to be able … Continue reading Aerospace professor Paul Durbin uses grants to research computational fluid dynamics
