Major Professional Contributions:

Dr. Jagadeesh has made significant contributions in area of hypersonic aerothermodynamics and industrial applications of shock waves. His experimental research has shown that concentrated energy deposition, heat releasing material coating, forward facing jets and retractable aerospikes can be used for substantially reducing aerodynamic drag at hypersonic speeds. His important contributions to National Space Programme spearheaded by ISRO has been the measurement of the aerodynamic coefficients and convective surface heat transfer rates in the forebody and base regions of the scaled down (1/25) model of Space Recovery Module (SRE) configuration in the shock tunnel at different free stream Mach numbers (6-12)..
