This report describes the activities of two research establishments in France The Laboratoire de Mecanique des Fluides of the Ecole Centrale de Lyon and Techniques des Fluides, Grenoble. Visiting the two facilities on the same trip allowed good comparison between a basic research facility and an industrial consulting firm. The former institution has an international reputation for quality research in fluid mechanics and aeroacoustics. The latter is involved in activities ranging from contract research in cavitation to the design and construction of large testing facilities.
