Welcome to the FLOW Lab at UC Berkeley!
Our research focuses on the advancement of the physical understanding of high-Reynolds number single- and multiphase flows. The present focus is on flows relevant to energy production, offshore applications, and naval hydrodynamics. Our research combines advanced experimental techniques, instrument development, and theoretical model development.
Assistant Professor Simo A. Mäkiharju is the FLOW lab’s director, and co-director of the Physical Model Test Facility at Richmond Field Station.
