Welcome to the Prof. Banerjee's Turbulent Flow Design Group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering & Mechanics at Lehigh University. Our long term research goal is to understand fundamental issues related to space and scale interactions in turbulent flows. At present, our research focus lies in fluid dynamics in extreme environments (inertial confinement fusion), alternative energy applications (marine hydrokinetic energy), and bio-fluid dynamics (pulmonary drug delivery under different ventilation conditions). Research support for these efforts comes from the National Science Foundation, Office of Naval Research, Department of Energy (NNSA) and Los Alamos National Laboratory.
