Congratulations to Dr. Karthik Duraisamy for his promotion to Aerospace Engineering Associate Professor!

Professor Duraisamy is interested in the development of computational models, algorithms and uncertainty quantification approaches with application to the aeromechanics of fixed and rotary wing aircraft, wind turbines and hypersonic cruise vehicles. This research includes fluid dynamic modeling at a fundamental level as well as in an integrated system-level setting. An overarching theme of his Computational Aerosciences Laboratory is the use of computational methods to answer scientific and engineering questions at the desired level of sophistication with an understanding of the effect of modeling uncertainties on the predicted results.

Professor Duraisamy was recently appointed the Director of the Center of Excellence on Rocket Combustor Dynamics, which will simulate flows and flames inside rocket engines, with the hope of laying the groundwork for smarter, more reliable designs.
