Dr. Majdalani’s research devotes itself to the theoretical and computational modeling of wall-bounded thermofluid and propulsion systems that are mainly driven by either wall-normal or wall-tangential injection. His interests span both low and high speed fluid mechanics, vorticoacoustic instabilities, engine internal flowfields, vorticity dynamics, and singular perturbation theory. 

His interests span both low and high speed fluid mechanics, vorticoacoustic instabilities, engine internal flowfields, vorticity dynamics, and singular perturbation theory. 

Our faculty research areas include advanced optical diagnostics, advanced propulsion concepts, combustion instability, missile trajectory reconstruction and optimization, orbital mechanics and astronautics, rocket design and performance, rotorcraft wake dynamics, spacecraft dynamics and control, swirl-driven combustion, and vorticity dynamics.
