Corke Honored for Research Achievements

Thomas C. Corke, the Clark Equipment Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering and Director of the Center for Flow Physics and Control (FlowPac), was the recipient of the 2007 Research Achievement Award presented by the University. Corke, who specializes in the study of fluid mechanics - particularly hydrodynamic stability and transition to turbulence, acoustic receptivity, flow control, and aircraft design, joined the University in 1999. Since that time, he has established an outstanding record of research and scholarship while devoting considerable time to teaching and mentoring students.

An internationally known scholar, Corke has continued to make significant contributions to the study and understanding of fluid mechanics. He has also received more than $8 million of research funding for a variety of projects and has published "Design of Aircraft," which has been adopted as the capstone design text in 12 aerospace departments in the U.S.

Corke is a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the American Physical Society and an associate fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

His leadership and dedication as director of FlowPac has encouraged tremendous growth in the center, which now has five industrial partners.
