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.
- Uncertainty quantification.
- Lattice Boltzmann methods
- Non-Newtonian fluids
- Human blood circulation modeling
- Turbulence modeling
