Low-speed and high-speed flow facilities

At the Whittle Laboratory we combine both experimental and computational methods to determine the underlying physical mechanisms affecting turbomachinery performance. Most research projects involve some combination of computational simulation and experimental measurements; this combined approach is crucial for the study of complex turbulent flows as found in turbomachines, due to the inaccuracies in current modelling methods.
