Recent and ongoing research projects
Our group develops numerical methods and data-driven approaches
for the prediction and optimization of "messy turbulent flows"
relevant to energy and the environment (often multiphase and
reacting). A large emphasis is on computational methods for disperse
two-phase flows (solid particles suspended in a carrier phase,
liquid droplets in gas, or gaseous bubbles in liquid). A main focus
of our research involves developing robust and scalable numerical
tools to investigate the multiphysics/multiscale phenomena on
world-class supercomputing resources. We thank our current and past sponsors: Office of Naval Research
(ONR), Air Force Research Lab (AFRL), National Aeronautics and Space Administration
(NASA), National Science
Foundation (NSF), Ford Motor Company, and Link Engineering.
