Missouri S&T received a $750,000 grant from NASA to help develop new approaches and computational models for predicting turbulence in aircraft flow fields. Washington University in St. Louis and Lincoln University are partners on the project.
Missouri is one of 15 states to receive funding in 2014 through NASA’s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR). The program supports basic research and technology development in areas relevant to NASA’s mission in designated states.
David W. Riggins, Curators’ Teaching Professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at Missouri S&T, is the project administrator.
