Other Research Projects
|Aerodynamics and acoustics prediction and control|
There is a growing interest in applying active flow and noise control in various engineering applications. 1. Jet noise continues to be a topic affecting aviation. In this context we have recently made two types of progress. The first is in collaboration with Cranfield university where we published a procedure to optimize...
|Aerodynamics of Fusion reactor design|
Fundamental and applied computational research is carried out to investigate and enhance the efficiency of magnetized target fusion reactor design. The research is carried out in collaboration with General Fusion.
|Bio fluids high performance simulation|
Bio-fluids are of great computational challenge. They involve complex geometry, two phase flows and non-Newtonian fluid properties. Developing the ability to predict these flows accurately and investigate their behaviour promises a new way of understanding abnormal conditions and development of remedies by reducing the time...

|High-resolution schemes for computational fluid dynamics, hyperbolic conservation laws, Monotonically Integrated Large Eddy Simulations for turbulent flows |
|Huaihe River 111 project|
Address the major challenge of managing immensely complex regulated river systems on very large scales. Specifically, the project focuses on managing channel networks for flood management, environmental objectives and water supply reliability. The Huaihe River Basin will be used as an example to assist in defining research areas and specific projects.
