Background

Professor Michael Plesniak's Biofluid Dynamics Lab conducts advanced fundamental research on human speech production (phonation) and cardiovascular flows. An overarching motivation for studying hemodynamics and speech production is to facilitate surgical planning, i.e. to enable physicians to assess the outcomes of surgical procedures by using faithful computer simulations. Professor Plesniak is the director of GW's Center for Biomimetics and Bioinspired Engineering. His Turbulence, Fluid Dynamics and Wind Energy Lab at GW's Virginia Science and Technology Campus is equipped with wind tunnel facilities to study a variety of flows relevant to transportation and energy research.

Current Research

Bio fluid mechanics, turbulence transport and mixing enhancement, cavitation, three-dimensional boundary layers, gas turbine cooling, environmentally-benign consumer aerosol sprays, and entrainment control
