The Meadow Aerodynamics lab was established in the mid 70’s by Prof. I. Wygnanski. It was headed by Prof. Avi Seifert (RIP) untill 2023, a lab graduate. The lab is one of the world leading facilities in studying the uses of Active Flow Control (AFC) for applications in aerodynamic vehicles. The lab boasts a variety of low-speed wind tunnels which are designed to specialize in AFC research.

The lab personnel holds many patents and maintains extensive national and international collaboration with academia, research institutes, and industry. The lab focuses in activities related to aerodynamic aspects of energy efficiency and environmental footprint.
