Research Field: Aerospace – Hypersonic Stability and Transition
Current research focus is on the Nonlinear Parabolized Stability Equations (NPSE) to analyze and better understand laminar-turbulent transition physics for improved hypersonic vehicle design and control.
Rotating, Environmental, and Experimental Fluids (REEF) Lab
Research Field: Oceanography – Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
Experimental, observational, theoretical and numerical investigation of ocean physics. Current research includes: Loop Current systems, bottom boundary-layer processes, influence of topography on fate and transport modelling.
Research Field: Biomechanical – Nonlinear Vibrations
Current research focuses on application of the Phase Space Warping methodology (slow drifting of system dynamics due to slow variation in system parameters) to finite-time invariant manifold studies (such as chaotic mixing) and fatigue prediction.
The Kuehl Group Labs - Rotating, Environmental, and Experimental Fluids (REEF) and Hypersonix lab moved to the University of Delaware in August 2017. Now, the lab's website is up as we continue to do various fluid dynamics research and share our progress with others...
