Over the almost four decades he has been working in fluid dynamics, Werner Dahm has yet to see a lull in its upward trajectory as a springboard for progress in science, engineering, technology and the growth of industry.

The vigor of the field as a driver of innovation in developing potential solutions to some of the world’s most critical challenges was recently on display at the 74th Annual Meeting of the American Physical Society’s Division of Fluid Dynamics, or APS DFD, in Phoenix.

“This was one of the best APS DFD meetings I’ve attended in the past 40 years,” says Dahm, the Arizona State University Foundation Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, leader of the Laboratory for Turbulence, Combustion, and Propulsion, and founding director and chief scientist for ASU’s Security and Defense Systems Initiative.
