Computational Fluid Mechanics Research Lab

Computational Fluid Mechanics Lab

The Computational Fluid Mechanics (CFM) group conducts fundamental research in fluid mechanics and turbulence. The main research focus of the CFM group is to explain the physical mechanisms of single-phase, multi-phase, and multi-species turbulent flows with applications but not limited to internal and external aerodynamics, and propulsion.

Numerical methods and algorithms for parallel supercomputers are developed to perform state-of-the-art Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) and Large-Eddy Simulations (LES) of turbulent flows at high Reynolds-number using high-performance computing (HPC).

Multidisciplinary research within the School of Engineering and in collaboration with other Departments is also encouraged in the CFM group.
