This summer, Ivana Milanovic, professor of
mechanical engineering, CETA, is a visiting scientist, hosted by
the Thermal and Fluid Sciences Department at United Technologies
Research Center (UTRC).
During her assignment, Milanovic is conducting a numerical investigation of a high-pressure turbine rotor cascade, examining fluid interactions and heat transfer. The work is expected to provide graduate-level projects for students interested in computational simulation studies.
