Welcome to the McKeon Research Group
The McKeon group specializes in experimental and theoretical fluid mechanics, in particular:
Modeling and control of wall-bounded flows using smart, morphing surfaces
Resolvent analysis as a tool for modeling turbulent, transitional and controlled flows; rigorous, system-level tools for understanding flow physics and design of flow control schemes.
Data assimilation techniques for engineering flows
Fusion of experimental and computational data for improved modeling and control of complex flows and geometries.
Measurement, definition and description of high Reynolds number wall turbulence
Interdisciplinary approaches to experimental flow manipulation for performance enhancement and understanding of fundamental flow physics; application of new materials to flow control.
