Ivana Milanovic, associate professor of mechanical engineering, CETA, has received a 2011 NASA Fellowship Award.
The fellowship will be hosted by the Turbomachinery and Propulsion Systems Division at NASA Glenn Research Center in the summer of 2011.
During her tenure, Milanovic will conduct an investigation of jets in cross-flow. The motivation for the study stems from the current emphasis on active flow control strategies, particularly in turbomachinery and aeronautical applications, and the need to better understand, control and predict the vortex dynamics.
The work is expected to provide graduate-level projects for students interested in computational simulation studies.
