Our Mission...

Inspired by the intellectual heritage of J. M. Burgers, the mission of the Burgers Program is to enhance the quality and international visibility of fluid dynamics research and educational programs at the University of Maryland with the help of an endowed Burgers Fund. Fluid dynamics in this context is viewed to include a broad range of dynamics, from nanoscales to geophysical scales, in simple and complex fluids.

Examples of Burgers Program Activities...

  1. Providing an environment and precedence for knowledge exchange and networking within the fluid dynamics community on the University of Maryland campus.
  2. Maintaining a close collaboration with the J. M. Burgers Centre in The Netherlands.
  3. Creating and building a Burgers Fund.

The Burgers Program is supported by faculty from the College of Computer, Mathematical and Natural Sciences and the A. J. Clark School of Engineering.
