Fluid Dynamics: The Fluid Dynamics program supports fundamental research and education on mechanisms and phenomena governing fluid flow. Topics include: hydrodynamic stability; transitional flows and turbulence; Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluid mechanics; sediment transport, waves and coastal engineering; multi-scale, multi-phenomena models and computations; biofluid mechanics, micro and nanoscale flow phenomena, and microfluidics. Proposed research should contribute to the basic understanding of fluid dynamics, thus enabling the better design, predictability, efficiency, and control of systems that involve fluids. Proposals addressing innovative uses of fluids in materials development, manufacturing, biotechnology, nanotechnology, clinical diagnostics and drug delivery, sensors development and integration, energy and the environment, are encouraged.Examples of currently funded research activities include: * Turbulence & Flow Control: Large Eddy Simulation, Direct Numerical Simulation, high Reynolds number experiments, stability and transition to turbulence, instrument development, flow control, 3-D boundary layers, multi-phase turbulent flows * Complex Fluids: rheology, instability, physics of polymer solutions, DNA, Molecular Dynamics simulations * Micro- Nano- Bio- Fluid Mechanics: microfluidics, biomedical microdevices, effects of nanoscale inclusions on rheological properties, flows in biomedical assistive devices, biomimetics, multiscale modeling of biological flow processes * Waves and Hydraulics & Environmental Fluid Mechanics: wave-sea bed interactions, wave-structure interactions, breaking waves, cavitation-induced flow instabilities, sediment transport, air pollution models * General Fluid Mechanics: droplet and bubble dynamics, gravitational plumes, gas-liquid interfaces, insect flight, compressible flow * Instrumentation & Flow Diagnostics: MEMS shear stress sensors, Magnetic Resonance Imaging for engineering flow measurements, advanced optical velocimetry systems such as echocardiography Particle Image VelocimetryThe duration of unsolicited awards is generally one to three years. The average annual award size for the program is $80,000. Please check the NSF Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Systems Division (CBET) Home Page for the two annual submission windows for unsolicited proposals. Small equipment proposals up to $100,000 will also be considered and may be submitted during these windows. Any proposal received outside the announced dates will be returned without review.The duration of CAREER awards is five years. The submission deadline for Engineering CAREER proposals is in July every year.
