VON KARMAN INSTITUTE FOR FLUID DYNAMICS (VKI)

Space vehicles re-entry, safety of nuclear reactors, noise and pollution reduction, performance of aircraft engine and renewable energy systems define to a large extent the research performed at the VKI.

Located near Brussels, this non-profit international educational and scientific organization is specialized in fluid dynamics (anything which flows) in the areas of aeronautics and aerospace, environmental and applied fluid dynamics, and turbomachinery and propulsion. The von Karman Institute prides itself in providing “advanced training in research through research” and hosts more than 50 facilities and wind tunnels, some of them world-unique.
