Thomas Corke is the Founding Director of the Notre Dame Center for Flow Physics and Control (FlowPAC).
His research experience ranges from hydrodynamic stability and transition to turbulence, to fully turbulent flows. It involves an equally diverse range of flow fields including boundary layers, wakes, and jets. This has been applied to a broad range of applications, including aerodynamic performance enhancement, flight control, the internal flow of gas-turbine engines, acoustic noise control, and wind flows around buildings and structures. He has experimental experience over the full range of Mach numbers. His research also includes computational fluid dynamics.
