Environmental and Engineering Fluid Mechanics: Wernher Brevis' Website


Welcome to my website,

I'm a Chilean Civil Engineer with a strong interest in fluid motion.  My academic activities are normally related to the understanding and prediction of the relationship between turbulent fluid motion and  human-made and environmental obstacles. In particular, I am interested in the coherent structures that can develop when a flow is forced by single or groups of obstacle. Obstacles are everywhere in the Engineered and Natural Environment, therefore the improvement of  the understanding and modelling of their interaction with turbulent flows is crucial for the prediction of structural performance and  for the proper description of several environmental processes.

My approach is mainly experimental, thus my research strongly intersect aspects of applied optics, computer vision, signal processing and electronics.

I hope that this pages are of the interest of the reader. If you are a motivated  and outstanding student, I would be delighted to support your application for a PhD with me as advisor. Please feel free to contact me (see navigation panel)
