CFD & PROPULSION LABORATORY
We focus our research on the development of high-performance computational fluid dynamics (CFD) algorithms for modeling and simulation of aerospace propulsion systems on next-generation computer architectures. With new opportunities in high performance computing (HPC), we explore novel programming models and high-order CFD algorithms to advance HPC CFD for flows encountered in next-generation aerospace propulsion systems, and improve the design, analysis, and optimization.
