The FAST lab studies many aspects of fluid mechanics and how it affects the world we live in. We work on a wide range of subjects ranging from drag reduction to boundary layers to wind turbines. Look around!

[December 13, 2018]: Claudia and Kelly are attending the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in Washington, DC.


[November 1, 2018]: Congratulations to Dr. Mark Miller on a successful thesis defense!



[September 22, 2018]: Fun lab outing in NYC. Ramen + ping pong = good times!



[August 27, 2018]: Congratulations to Dr. Matthew Fu on a successful thesis defense!



[July 20, 2018]: Kelly (left), Claudia (right) and Katherine (not pictured) studied the atmospheric boundary layer by placing nano-scale thermal anemometry probes on meter-tall towers in the Utah salt flats. Dugway, Utah was the perfect location to study the canonical atmospheric boundary layer due to its low surface roughness.


[May 30, 2018]: Planting at the FFS (Forrestal Farm Share) is well underway! We are expecting tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, onions, lettuce, beans, eggplants, onions, radishes, peppers, strawberries, watermelons and a variety of herbs this upcoming season.

[December 13, 2016]: Graduate students Matthew 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.
