About the Lab
The DynaaTECC research laboratory deals with Dynamics, acoustics, aeroelasticity, Theory, Experiments, Computations and Controls of mobility systems found in engineering and medical cross-disciplinary fields that can behave rigidly or flexibly under natural and forced environments. Student researchers work on their Ph.D. dissertations or Master’s thesis research directed by Professor Sarigul-Klijn, and are from one of the following graduate programs: Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering; Electrical and Computer Engineering; or Biomedical Engineering.
Selected Research Topics
(Section Under Development)
Inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerators (IADs) are an important atmospheric re-entry technology for landing large payloads on Mars. It is not feasible to scale current entry, descent, and landing systems for larger payloads; therefore, the DynaaTECC Research Lab is investigating IAD deployment using computational simulation.
