Welcome to the Aerospace Design Laboratory, a computational analysis and design research laboratory in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Stanford University.

The Aerospace Design Lab, directed by Prof. Juan Alonso, specializes in the development of high-fidelity, multi-disciplinary analysis and design methods to enable the creation of efficient, environmentally friendly, and realizable aerospace systems. Our work in the past has involved a large number of applications including transonic, supersonic, and hypersonic aircraft, helicopters, turbomachinery, and launch and re-entry vehicles. 

Current topics of research interest include multiphysics simulations of high-speed flows, uncertainty quantification in the analysis and design of complex systems, architectures for high-fidelity multi-disciplinary analysis and design, and the use of advanced mathematical techniques for large-scale high-performance computing to realize a simulation-based design vision.
