Abstract : The Institut fur Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik of the DFVLR at the Universitat Freiburg i. Br. is engaged in fundamental research above all in the field of fluid mechanics of viscous flows. Methods for the computation of laminar and turbulent, incompressible and compressible boundary layers are developed which, for technical applications, take into account real gas-effects and the phenomena of heat and mass transfer. In this connection, the break-up of droplets due to aerodynamic or thermochemical forces and the rain erosion are studied. The stability of laminar flows of viscous fluids and the pre-stages of turbulence are investigated theoretically as well as experimentally. Studies of flow in rotating systems are again under way.
