Research activities in the area of flight science and vehicle dynamics are varied. Current topics of interest include airfoil design and analysis; low Reynolds number aerodynamics; aircraft drag reduction; winglets and planform optimization for induced drag minimization, force, and moment prediction for aircraft flight control; dynamic stall, helicopter aerodynamics and performance prediction; and helicopter rotor blade/airframe interference.
