Turbulence Simulation Laboratory

To study the details of a turbulent flow, it is sometimes more informative to accurately simulate the flow with a computer than to try to observe it in the laboratory. Direct numerical simulation involves the numerical solution of the equations that govern fluid flows.  It is a research tool that provides us with an extremely detailed description of the flow field.  Our lab uses these techniques to study various flows...Read More
