Upcoming Presentations


The UW Fluid Flow Physics group, headed by Dr. Sean D. Peterson, focuses on understanding fundamental and applied fluid mechanics problems using a blend of analytical modeling, numerical simulation, and experimental observation. Current research topics include understanding the influence of implanted stents on flow structures in curved arteries, robotic fish propulsion using novel smart materials, and energy harvesting from coherent fluid structures. Please contact Prof. Peterson (peterson &at& mme &dot& uwaterloo &dot& ca) for further information on the research projects or to apply to the research group.
