Noel T. Clemens


Clare Cockrell Williams Centennial Chair in Engineering

Department Research Areas:
Aerothermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics

Ph.D., Stanford University

Research Interests:

  • Hypersonics and Propulsion
  • Turbulent Combustion and Mixing
  • Laser-based Measurement Techniques

Dr. Clemens' research is in the general areas of hypersonics, high-temperature gas dynamics, propulsion and turbulent mixing and combustion. His work is primarily experimental and involves wind tunnel testing and the application of advanced optical diagnostics. His current work focuses on 3D shock wave /boundary layer interactions, dual-mode scramjet isolator unstart control, high-temperature ablation and turbulent combustion.

He has served on the faculty of the Cockrell School of Engineering since 1993 and has two years of experience at Sandia National Laboratories. He was named a National Science Foundation Presidential Faculty Fellow in 1996 and served as Editor-in-Chief of Experiments in Fluids from 2009 to 2013. Dr. Clemens is a Fellow of both the AIAA and the American Physical Society.
