The current research being conducted in aeroelasticity focuses on improving the description of fluid-structure interactions, particularly for high-speed flows and shock waves. This project is sponsored by a Computational Science and Engineering Fellowship. The research is conducted by faculty members, research scientists and post docs, numerous graduate students, and undergraduate students.
