Yosef Meller is the most recent Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) of the Turbulence Structure Laboratory, graduated on July 7, 2019. Here is Yosef after receiving his diploma from the Rector of Tel Aviv University
Jerusalem Post has recently published an article about the largest Israel wind tunnel at the Israel Institute of Biological Research and mentioned the work of Ron Shnapp
Meiron Zollman is guiding a couple of youngsters from the excellent program of 9th-grade students from the Alpha program – a research program for gifted students operated by TAU through Tel Aviv Youth University. We prepared them a nice Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) demo. An open source PIV software (OpenPIV) is going to help them to understand the scientific side and importance of math and engineering.
So what did we get from this experiment?
Daniel Friedman will continue to work on this data (few terrabytes of images and videos) that can be processed through Particle Tracking Velocimetry for a more detailed particle motion analysis.
Our laboratory, together with the Microsystems Design and Characterization Laboratory of Prof. Slava Krylov works on a new line of MEMS flow sensors. Our graduate students, Yoav Kessler, and Ben Torteman have created recently a couple of models and devices that enable the futher study of the new concepts.
The main kudos here goes to Ben Torteman who together with Yoav Kessler and under the guidance of Prof. Slava Krylov solved one of the long-standing problems of high-frequency driving of bistable beams using nothing but an alternating current. What we thought is impossible, became a reality.
