Fluid dynamics, turbomachinery, propulsion, re-entry, environmental effects
Aerothermodynamics of space vehicle re-entry, safety of nuclear reactors, noise and pollution reduction, design of aircraft engines and renewable energy systems define to a large extent the research performed at the Von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics (VKI). These and many other topics gather young engineers and scientists from all over the world at the VKI to study, improve their skills and perform their research.
Located in Sint-Genesius-Rode, near Brussels, this non profit international educational and scientific organization is specialized in fluid dynamics (anything which flows) in the areas of Aeronautics and Aerospace, Environmental and Applied Fluid Dynamics, and Turbomachinery and Propulsion. The von Karman Institute prides itself in providing “advanced training in research through research”.
