[January 20, 2017]: Congratulations to Katherine Kokmanian for passing her General Exam.


[December 13, 2016]: Graduate students Matt Fu and Yuyang Fan visited Melbourne to take measurements with NSTAPs in the High Reynolds Number Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel (HRNBLWT) at the University of Melbourne, to obtain high quality boundary layer data. The HRNBLWT is presently the largest zero-pressure gradient wind tunnel, with Re_tau up to 30,000.
