Welcome to the website of the Flow Control Group at the Mechanical and Aerospace Department of the Politecnico di Torino. The activities essentially includes basic studies, development and application of advanced flow control techniques.

Actual activities :

♦ Flow control focused on

1) Wall turbulence for friction drag reduction

2) Bluff bodies

3)Transitional flows

4) Airfoil flow separation

5) Unconventional cavity flow

♦ Fundamental investigations of wall flows

♦ Flow Estimates

♦ Development of sensors and flow actuators 

♦ Development of flow diagnostic techniques

♦ Investigation on unconventional aircraft configurations

The studies are mainly conducted with experimental approaches in the Fluid Dynamic Laboratory  “ M. Panetti” of the Politecnico di Torino and also preliminary CFD investigations are performed through commercial codes.
