Current activities

State-of-the-art numerical methods for Computational Fluid Dynamics in the following areas:
  • Turbulence modelling in conjunction with high-order schemes
  • Large-scale production RANS for aerospace applications
  • Implicit Large Eddy Simulation for hybrid-unstructured meshes
  • Parallel scientific computing with numerical-methods driven partitioning techniques
  • Techniques for moving overset meshes tailored complicated geometries
  • Adaptive mesh refinement strategies for efficient simulation techniques.
  • Multiphysics modelling using the diffuse interface model

These activities are realised in a novel computational framework UCNS3D (, which i lead, and is the a collaborative effort from prominent professionals in academia and industry from more than 7 countries.
