Fluid Mechanics

APPLICATIONS / CHALLENGES / RESEARCH DIRECTIONS

  • PIV flow visualisation
  • Wind tunnel experiments

MAIN SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL INTERESTS

  • Numerical solution of the Navier-Stokes equations by use of 'mimetic' discretisation methods
  • Mimetic numerical schemes mimic the continuous differential equation as much as possible
  • Use of high order discretisation schemes-spectral methods
  • Rheology
  • Mixed Eulerian - Lagrangian formulation
  • Topology optimisation of fluid structure interaction
