In the computational flow physics group, we investigate the fundamental mechanics of complex fluid flow using numerical simulations. Simulations provide key insights into local and global instabilites, sources of sound, shock dynamics, and interactions with a disperse phase such as cavitaiton bubbles or droplets. We are also interested in the application of control theory in fluid mechanics, and reduced-order modeling techniques for control.
