Welcome to the website of the Institute of Fluid Mechanics (LSTM) at the Technical Faculty of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg. We are an academic unit of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering with research and educational focus on mass, momentum and energy transport in natural and technical processes.

We view fluid mechanics as cross-disciplinary field between natural and engineering sciences, including applied mathematics and informatics, and are particularly interested in its applications to medicine and human biology. The institute is organized in ten different areas, each of which focuses on several research subjects.

We offer more than 30 Bachelor and Master courses in the following programs: Chemical and Biological Engineering, Life Sciences Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Energy Technology, Advanced Materials and Processes, Computational Engineering and Medical Engineering. Our courses range from elementary topics in Fluid Mechanics to its applications across disciplines.

The Institute of Fluid Mechanics (LSTM) will host the 27th symposium of the German Association for Laser Anemometry (GALA e.V.) from 3.-5. of September 2019. The symposium targets a vast range of fluid mechanics issues. Topics range from fundamentals of measuring techniques in fluid mechanics ti...
