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