In the computational flow physics group, we investigate a varity of flow phenomena using numerical simulations. Simulations provide key insights into turbulence, 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. Applications include jet noise, flow-energy harvresting, shockwave lithotripsy, and active control of unsteady aerodynamics.
