Research at CFD lab ranges from high speed turbulent flows to molecular dynamics. We have a highly motivated research group which carries out fundamental research of practical relevance. The computational facilities for our research are provided by High Performance Computing Center (HPCC) of Michigan State University. Some of the research areas we focus on are:
High Speed Turbulent Flows: We use high order numerical algorithms to study the physics of high speed turbulent flows like shock-boundary layer interactions and supersonic combustion.
Wind Turbine Aerodynamics: The key objective of this research is to use computer models/simulations to gain a better understanding of the aerodynamic loads that wind turbines experience with an ultimate goal of increasing power output.
Reacting and Non-Reacting Flows: We use a novel approach called Filtered Mass Density Function (FMDF) methodology to study both reacting and non-reacting flows.
