Environmental and Industrial Fluid Dynamics Laboratory
The
Environmental and Industrial
Fluid Dynamics Laboratory
is the only such facility housed in a Mathematical
Sciences department in Canada.
In addition to academic fluid dynamical research, we provide consulation
and expertise for industrial fluid dynamical problems including
Experimental
Testing, Numerical Simulations and Mathematical Modelling.
Please contact
Dr. Bruce
R. Sutherland, Director
for further information.
