  • High temperature gas dynamics
  • Hypersonic and supersonic flows
  • Shock wave phenomena

The delivery of industry solutions as well as the education of students and the ongoing scientific qualification of our Ph.D. students are the main ambitions of our work.

Our actual research projects illustrate our intent to apply the shock tube technology to new research fields. These are realized in our test facilities. The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation, DFG) regularly supports research projects of the Shock Wave Laboratory.
