Fluid and Solid Mechanics
The physics of fluids and solids are an unending source of interest. The NavierStokes equations, porous media phenomena, remote sensing, and other such areas provide difficult problems in both mathematics and computation, that a number of faculty address in their research. The main focus areas are fluid dynamics at small scales, flows in complex environments, active motion and selforganization, solidfluid interfaces, and porous media.
