About

Welcome to the professional page of Casey Harwood, Assistant Professor of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering and Assistant Faculty Research Engineer, IIHR–Hydroscience & Engineering at the University of Iowa.

This site is recently launched, and will be under development during the next several months.

A current list of journal and conference articles will be maintained in the ‘publications’ section.

Additions to the site in the near future are expected to include

  • Research project pages detailing my specific research projects
  • An experimental data repository from my work with multi-phase flows around surface-piercing hydrofoils, consisting of 1,000+ experimental trials with rigid and flexible struts in a towing tank and free surface cavitation tunnel
  • Photo galleries
  • Curriculum material from my teaching

In the meantime, please see my professional profile links at the bottom of the sidebar for additional information.
