||The Experimental Fluid Mechanics and Instability Laboratory is located in the Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering Department in The University of Arizona.|
The lab is headed by Dr. Jeff Jacobs,
its main focus of research is the experimental study the
Rayleigh-Taylor and Richtmyer-Meshkov instabilities. These fluid
instabilities occur at the
Both instabilities are the result of baroclinic vorticity generated by the misalignment of pressure and density gradients at the interface.
