University of Michigan - Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute


Aero-Thermal Laboratory


Prof. Qiang Zhang


The Laboratory will be working on heat transfer and aerodynamics with particular application to axial turbines. Research topics range from fundamental studies of physical processes that are important for jet-engine life and performance, to the development of innovative design schemes for HP turbine blade and advanced measurement techniques and instrumentation. Major experimental facilities include a Transonic Wind Tunnel (under development), a high-speed rotor facility (planning), and a high speed probe Calibration tunnel (planning).
