Schetz Conducts High Speed Boundary Layer Short Course

Dr. Joseph Schetz, an Endowed Chair Professor from the Department of Aerospace and Ocean Engineering at Virginia Tech, visited the University of Tennessee Space Institute to give a 3 day short course on High Speed Boundary Layers from April 15-17. He covered all aspects of boundary layer theory from the low-speed laminar flow regime up through hypersonic turbulent flows. In addition to boundary layer theory, Dr. Schetz drew from his extensive experimental and computational background to offer an applied perspective on the implementation of test techniques and computational tools to the study of fluid boundary layers. The course was attended by more than 70 individuals from AEDC, UTSI, and UTC.
