In the computational thermo-fluids lab, we study problems in the areas of aerodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer using the state-of-the-art numerical methods. Some of the recent projects include
  • Tandem wing aerodynamics
  • Wind turbine aerodynamics
  • Dynamic stall
  • Liquid-gas two phase jet
  • Impact of droplet on solid surface
  • Impact of droplet on thin film
  • Icing due to superlarge droplet
  • Mass transfer in microfluidics
