The Applied Fluids Research Group directed by Vrishank Raghav is a research laboratory in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Auburn University. The research groups mission is focused on employing fluid dynamics and engineering principles to better understand aerospace and biomedical fluid systems. In Aerospace engineering the group is interested in Unsteady Aerodynamics and MultiRotor Aeromechanics. In Biomedical engineering applications include Cardiovascular and Respiratory diseases and the associated fluid mechanics. 


If you are interested in working with the Applied Fluids Research Group. Please contact the Principal Investigator Vrishank Raghav via e-mail.
