2 AERONAUTICS AND ASTRONAUTICS The course offerings and research activities in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics cover most aspects of aircraft and space- craft design, structures, fluid mechanics, dynamics and control, and navigation, with strong emphasis on fundamental principles as well as on systems engineering. Chair: Charbel Farhat Information: 650-723-1139 Juan Alonso Associate Professor AERONAUTICS AND ASTRONAUTICS Alonso’s work is focused on research and development of new high-fidelity, multidisciplinary methods and techniques for the analysis and design of complex aerospace systems. He is interested in the devel - opment of these methods and their use in realistic test cases. Past and current research includes transonic, supersonic and hypersonic vehicles; rotorcraft; turbomachinery; and launch vehicles. Specific current inter - ests include advanced methods for design, multifidelity optimization, environmentally friendly aircraft, uncertainty quantification and robust design, and system-level challenges for NextGen. PhD 1997 Princeton Phone: 650-723-9954; Email: [email protected] URL: Brian Cantwell Professor; Edward C. Wells Professor in the School of Engineering AERONAUTICS AND ASTRONAUTICS, MECHANICAL ENGINEERING Cantwell’s research interests are in the area of turbulent flow. Recent work has centered on three areas: the direct numerical simulation of turbulent shear flows, theoretical studies of the fine-scale structure of turbulence and experimental measurements of turbulent structure in flames. Experimental studies include the development of parti - cle-tracking methods for measuring velocity fields in unsteady flames and variable density jets. Research in turbulence simulation includes the development of spectral methods for simulating vortex rings, the development of topological methods for interpreting complex fields of data, and simulations of high Reynolds number compressible and incompressible wakes. Theoretical studies include predictions of the

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
