Hypersonic Laser Tagging A New Way of Understanding Fluid Mechanics – Professor Richard B. Miles, Texas A&M University
Fluid mechanics is the study of the flows within liquids, gases and plasmas, and the forces that act upon them. Applications involving fluid mechanics are vast, ranging from chemical engineering to astrophysics, and so an accurate understanding is essential for future developments. Professor Richard Miles at Texas A&M University is an esteemed contributor to this field, and his team’s latest breakthrough involves a pioneering way of measuring the velocities of high-speed fluids.
