Division of Thermo-fluid and Simulation Engineering
Thermofluids research utilizes theoretical, numerical and experimental techniques to explore both fundamental and applied problems. Theoretical and numerical research broadly focuses on hydrodynamic stability, flow control, free surface flows, complex fluids, porous materials, two-phase flows, combustion, algorithm development, and convective heat transfer. The experimental research covers broader areas of interfacial fluid mechanics and heat transfer, turbulence, alternative energy systems, biological and environmental flows, and micro-systems. With an internationally leading record over the last few years in pure and applied research, this division combine experimental and computational modelling studies at a fundamental level.
