Welcome to Keio Univ. Fukagata Laboratory!

Fukagata laboratory (Thermo-Fluid Flow Control Lab.), Department of Mechanical Engineering, Keio University, is a relatively new laboratory, born in 2007.

We perform theoretical, numerical, and experimental studies on flow control and optimization, such as turbulence control (e.g., turbulent friction drag reduction) and suppression of vortex shedding from a body.

Our research is conducted in collaboration with other laboratories.
