Technische Universitaet Darmstadt (TUD)

Organisation profile

The Technische Universität (TU) Darmstadt is one of Germany’s leading technical universities. Its 270 professors, 4,000 employees and 23,000 students devote their talents and efforts to the research fields energy, mobility, communications and information technologies, housing and living conditions. TU Darmstadt is a founding member of TU 9, an association of Germany's largest technical universities. At present 64 FP7-projects are being carried out at TU Darmstadt.

The Institute for Fluid Mechanics and Aerodynamics (SLA) is one of 28 institutes in Mechanical Engineering at the TU Darmstadt. Headed by Prof. Cameron Tropea, there are approximately 55 employees at the institute, of which about 8 are post-docs or more senior, 35 are doctoral students and 12 are technical staff. The SLA institute pursues research and education in the fields of aerodynamics, measurement techniques for fluid mechanics, atomization and sprays and wetting/dewetting.

A strong link between theory, experiment and numerical simulation is a hallmark of research performed at SLA. Presently SLA is carrying out four FP7 EU projects, three of which involve aerodynamic topics.

Role in the project

SLA will participate in SP6 for models of ice crystal trajectories and impact probabilities and lead WP64 Develop ice-particle impingement models. SLA will also significantly contribute to WP63 and WP65.
