- Breaking the Spell of Prandtl: From Impossible to Possible CFD (slides)
As an example of what can be achieved, we have developed a new theory of flight exhibiting the actual fluid mechanics of flying, which has hitherto been hidden. Another is a characterization of slightly viscous incompressible bluff body flow as potential flow modified by 3d rotational slip separation.

To get perspective on the Prandtl Medal (including Medals given to Prandtl), I advise to read and contemplate:
- Making of the Prandtl Myth by John D Anderson
- The Dusk of Fluid Mechanics
- Dr Faustus of Modern Physics
Here is the statement I have asked to be read by me or the person presenting my work at the award ceremony:
