Applied Computational Fluid Dynamics Laboratory


The applied computational fluid dynamics (CFD) lab at the Mechanical Engineering Department was established to use CFDas an analysis tool to understand the transport phenomena (fluid dynamics, heat and mass transfer, chemical reactions and electromagnetic effects) in industrial processes and as a design tool to optimize engineering components and system design. Multiphysics modeling and simulations are carried out to study transport phenomena and thermally induced stress in various industrial processes and engineered systems, such as energy conversion, automobile aerodynamics, electronics cooling, HVAC(heating ventilation and air conditioning), welding, casting, etc.

We are currently working on the following projects:
