Research

research overview

  • Dr. Farnsworth's research is focused in the areas of understanding and controlling complex three-dimensional unsteady flow fields for aerodynamic applications. These topics include, but are not limited to: fluid-structure interactions, turbulence, highly three-dimensional regions of flow separation, and the design of novel fluidic actuators for flow control. To accomplish these tasks Dr. Farnsworth focuses on the implementation of experimental methods, primarily in the area of low speed wind tunnel testing.
