Research

Division of aerodynamics is involved in a broad range of Fluid Mechanics research in both experiment and computation.

Our main area of interest lies in:

  • Development, testing and application of high efficiency parallel CFD numerical tools.
  • Application of Residual Distribution (Fluctuation Splitting) methods on unstructured meshes for advection dominated problems.
  • Methods of unstructured, structured and hybrid mesh generation.
  • Mesh adaptation through remeshing, refinement and mesh movement in a massively parallel computational environment.
  • Error estimation techniques.
  • Generation of high order meshes for curvilinear boundaries in complex, industrial geometries.
  • Passive and active flow control methods.
  • Laminar instabilities, and laminar mixing.
  • Adjoint methods.
  • Optimization.
  • Uncertainty quantification.
  • Lattice Boltzmann methods
  • Non-Newtonian fluids
  • Human blood circulation modeling
  • Turbulence modeling
