Join one of the most exciting and groundbreaking research environments. The Flow Physics and Computational Engineering Group in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Stanford University focuses focuses on interdisciplinary research by harnessing the most advanced computer technology to solve the most challenging (and turbulent) problems in science. With a strong multidisciplinary environment, bringing together internationally recognized experts in turbulence, computing, mathematics, mechanics, physics, and numerical analysis, we seek to create new scientific computing techniques, tools, and systems that enable solutions to problems affecting many aspects of human life. Areas of current interest include: hypersonics, flow-generated noise, turbulence combustion, numerical analysis, parallel computing, flow structure interaction, geophysical turbulence, and laminar/turbulent transition.
Current research projects include: Direct and large eddy simulations of turbulent and transitional flows, including studies of the effects of high speed on transition and turbulence; turbulent mixing and heat transfer with application to electronics cooling and to combustion; aerodynamic noise and hydro-acoustics; structure and mechanics of turbulent shear flows; active and passive turbulence control, including applications of optimal control theory and evolutionary algorithms; Reynolds averaged turbulence modeling for applications, including effects of compressibility, rotation, solid boundaries, flow separation, and chemical reactions; subgrid scale modeling for large-eddy simulation of complex flows and non-equilibrium turbulent flows; development of very accurate numerical methods for complex flows; development of particle methods for multiphase flows.
If you are interested in graduate studies, you can apply for graduate admission in the School of Enginering at Stanford University indicating interest with FPCE or related programs (e.g. CTR and PSAAP). Students interested in an applied mathematics track should consider the ICME program.
