Welcome to the Computational Thermo-Fluids Lab!
Computational Thermo-Fluids Laboratory at Texas A&M University focuses on understanding multiphase flow behavior at extreme conditions involving high-speed and high-pressure reacting and non-reacting conditions, flow instability and mixing, liquid stream break-up, spray & atomization, multiphase combustion, vortex dynamics, cavitating and condensating flows, and thermal-hydraulic behavior of supercritical flows.
Our goal is to develop new physical models from molecular to higher scales suitable for high-performance computing with high scalability to aid in designing clean and efficient energy conversion devices using novel sustainable fuels, and alternative fuels and contributing to the emerging high-speed technologies for ground, air, and space transportation, and electricity and power generation. Beyond numerical modeling, our lab develops novel nanoparticle spray deposition techniques and uses different experimental diagnostics to control nanoparticle-laden sprays and nanoparticle patterns. Our lab contributes to the sustainable and scalable fabrication of 3D functional and multi-material nanostructures for a wide range of applications, e.g., manufacturing smart wearables, functional coating, and textile antennas.
