Computational Fluid Dynamics


  • Fluid Mechanics plays an extremely crucial role in a wide variety of commercial and military applications, and in our everyday lives.
  • The governing equations in Fluid Mechanics are typically non-linear, time and history dependent.
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD): the sub-branch of Fluid Mechanics which employs numerical tools for solving fluid flow problems
  • The NUS Mechanical Engineering (ME) Department has built up a critical mass, with
    • sustainable research funding
    • international visibility
    • industry-based research and outcomes

Our research objectives include:-

  1. Development of novel and efficient numerical methods and algorithms to solve a wide variety of fluid flow problems;
  2. Application of CFD for fundamental research;
  3. Application of CFD for a diverse range of applied commercial and defense-related research involving fluid flow processes, especially in the Singapore context.
