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...

Computational aeroacoustics of high-speed jets

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.

Jet noise, jet/wing interaction, jet/fuselage interaction in cruise conditions, experimental validation of high-speed jet simulations

 Numerical Algorithms Development (Fluids and Acoustics):

We have led the development of a few world leading algorthims, this includes: 1. Hydrodynamics: a. A new coupling of turbulent flow simulation (LES) with structural dynamics (DEM/FEM) though the immersed boundary method (Mujiza et al, 2012); this led to new wide Fluids-Structure Interaction capabilities ranging from...

 Water flows and wakes, marine energy and sediment transport

A diverse programme focusing on challenging water flow problems of significant engineering interest has been developed. This includes: 1. Challenging water wakes studies of breaking waves, where a two-phase LES in-house code has been developed, achieving for the first time stable and accurate simulations for high Froude...
