A reduced-order model (right) compared to a PIV snapshot (left) of the flow around a NACA 0018 airfoil at a Reynolds number of 10250 and at zero angle of attack. The model is constructed using only knowledge of the PIV mean profile which is data-assimilated and used as an input to resolvent analysis.

Data-Assimilation

With Denis Sipp and Peter Schmid

Advisor: Beverley J. McKeon

Data-assimilation of the experimental velocity profile (right) into the RANS equations without a turbulence model. The video on the left shows various stages of the assimilation procedure as it tries to converge to the experimental field while obeying the parameters of the numerical model. 

Superhydrophic Wires

Mentor: Anaïs Gauthier

Advisor: David Quéré

Left: Drop impacting a superhydrophobic wire flush with a superhydrophobic plate.

Top Right: Drop recoiling off a superhydrophobic wire.

Top Left: Drop being split by a superhydrophobic wire. 

The hydrophobocity, impact velocity, and size of the drop delineate various regimes of behavior.
