Computational Aerodynamics Lab

Next-generation aircraft must be cleaner, quieter, and more fuel efficient to reduce their environmental impact. At the Concordia Computational Aerodynamics Laboratory we research, implement, and demonstrate the capabilities of novel computational tools that can be used for aerodynamic analysis and design. Our objective is to provide these cutting edge tools to the aerospace industry, enabling them to design optimal aircraft with reduced environmental impact.
