About us

PLS Fluid Dynamics is a team of three engineers.

Pierre-Louis SCHMITT - Founder and Director

I graduated as an engineer from a joint master Arts&Métiers and Paris VI La Sorbonne, in Fluids Mechanics and Energy. From September 2007 to April 2011, I worked as a research assistant at the CMEFE laboratory in Geneva. During this period I participated in many applied research projects both experimental and numerical for private and public partners. Willing to go further more in research and to maintain a professional activity close to Fluid Mechanics, I foundated PLS Fluid Dynamics in 2011.

Pierre MUNIER - Mechanical Engineer

Graduate with a master's degree of Science in Engineering from the University of Applied Sciences of Western Switzerland, specialized in Fluid Mechanics and Energetics, I worked as research assistant at the CMEFE (Geneva, Switzerland), from 2009 to 2014. Specialised in aero/hydrodynamics measurements as a result of multiple collaborations within experimental projects, I worked six months in the helicopter division of D.L.R. in Göttingen (Germany) where I provided a quality service in order to develop optical measurements technics in wind tunnel. I have joined P.L.S. Fluid Dynamics in September 2014.

Alexandre BENEDETTI - CFD Engineer

Graduate with a master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from INSA Lyon in 2011, I worked two years as a process engineer in the aeronatuics industry. I decided to deepen my understanding of Fluid Mechanics by obtaining a master's degree in Fluid Mechanics from Paris VI La Sorbonne. After my last internship spent on studying snowguns jets, I joined P.L.S. Fluid Dynamics in April 2015.
