About the UT CFD Lab
Academic Mission: To conduct forefront academic research in computational engineering sciences weak form theory and computing practice, to bring cutting-edge simulation capability to focus in assisting commercial industry do a better job of engineering design optimization. The historical research has been continuum computational fluid dynamics/heat/mass transport, collectively called "CFD,", a subject permeating a wide range of engineering design for optimal performance.
The UT CFD Laboratory exemplified the venue that industry has assimilated to keep pace in computer-based engineering system simulation. All MSc/PhD students, plus participating industry scientists and engineers, conducted applications in this exemplary computing environment promoting rapid conversion of theory musings into computing practice.
The Other CFD (Computational Framework and Data Analysis): In addition to research focusing on CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics), the lab is also excited to venture into the other CFD (Computational Framework and Data Analysis). The lab's latest project is aimed at streamlining the process of conducting multiphysics simulations and can be found here.
Research Facilities: The UT CFD Laboratory lecture/computing facility well supported the educational/research mission of the graduate Engineering Science focus in the computational engineering sciences.
Research projects conducted through the UT CFD Lab also interacted with the UT-ORNL Joint Institute for Computational Sciences (JICS) for high-performance computing research in CFD.
