Edinburgh Fluid Dynamics Group

The Edinburgh Fluid Dynamics Group aims to promote a sustainable culture of cooperation and leadership in fluid dynamics research within the University of Edinburgh.

Fluid dynamics is relevant to a wide variety of fields including acoustics, bio-medicine, aerodynamics, turbomachinery, engines, air/sea/land vehicles, renewable energy, weather systems, floods, fires, cosmology, and astrophysics.

At the University of Edinburgh there are more than 50 academics and estimated more than 200 postgraduate researchers across the Colleges of Science & Engineering and Medicine & Veterinary Medicine who conduct research in fluid dynamics.

The network aims to promote collaborations around key fluid mechanics themes, and to develop cross departmental strategy which will enable the University of Edinburgh to establish itself as a world leading university in the field of fluid mechanics. The network also aims to provide coordination and leadership to facilitate highest quality research by ensuring that cooperative funding bids are secured.
