Computational Plasma & Reactive Flow Laboratory (CPRL)
Our research laboratory specializes in the numerical simulation of plasma & reactive flows such as those used in aerodynamic flow control, in plasma-assisted combustion for scramjets, in plasma-based fuel reforming, as well as in hypersonic re-entry flows. The plasma technologies here considered can improve the performance of aircraft either through Dielectric Barrier Discharge (DBD) actuators to increase the... Read more.
CFDWARP Project: CFD Code for Plasma & Reactive Flow
Image
CFDWARP is a 100,000+ line C code that is specifically tailored to simulate efficiently plasma and reactive flows occurring in aerodynamics, combustion, hypersonics, re-entry, and fuel reforming. CFDWARP is a high-order compressible flow solver that uses novel flux discretization schemes suitable for Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) and Implicit Large Eddy Simulation (ILES). CFDWARP is superior to other codes in two ways:

AME536A Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics A
The first of two graduate courses giving a broad overview of the fundamental concepts and applications of fluid mechanics, AME536A is mostly focused on inviscid flow. We'll cover the fundamental equations of motions for mass and momentum conservation, surface tension, non-dimensional analysis, kinematics of vorticity, integral solutions, irrotational flows, and potential flow for incompressible and compressible...

AE23815 Heat Transfer
This is a third year undergraduate course about heat transfer phenomena. The course covers radiation, conduction in solids (steady and unsteady), external convection, viscous heating, internal convection, natural convection, and phase change. Example problems include the cooling of journal bearings, electricity cables, and the design of fins, hot wire anemometers, and hypersonic aircraft structural cooling... Read more.
AE25225 Intermediate Thermodynamics
Intermediate thermodynamics is a third-year undergraduate course explaining in more detail gas and liquid physics. Topics include the origin and the application of the ideal and non-ideal equations of state, the first and second law of thermo, the energy conservation equation in control-volume form, the isentropic relation for gases, the Maxwell relations, the mixtures of gases, and the chemical reactions within a...

AE68714 Computational Aerodynamics
“Computational Aerodynamics” is a graduate course (also opened to senior undergrads) giving an overview of the most popular Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methods for aerodynamics. We'll see how to recast the fluid equations in generalized curvilinear coordinates, how to measure numerical error using Richardson extrapolation, and how to craft some high resolution and high order flux discretization...

AE23837 Numerical Analysis
Numerical analysis is the branch of mathematics involved with the development of efficient methods for solving problems using a computer. In this second-year undergraduate course, we will cover various numerical methods including numerical integration, numerical differentiation, root finding of linear and non-linear systems of equations, and curve fitting. For each numerical method shown in class, the student will... Read more.
AE25168 Viscous Flow
Viscous flow is a senior-level undergraduate course focusing on the friction effects within fluid dynamics. The course starts with a derivation of the Navier-Stokes equations from Newton's law and then applies the Navier-Stokes equations to Couette flow within journal bearings, to external viscous flows on flat plates and airfoils, to internal flow within ducts and pipes, and to flows in pipe systems including... Read more.
AE63399 Compressible Flow
Compressible flow is a senior level or graduate course giving an introduction to gas dynamics with applications to wind tunnels, turbojet and ramjet inlets, rocket nozzles, and supersonic airfoils. The topics covered include isentropic flow in ducts with area change, unsteady and steady normal shock waves, oblique shock waves, Prandtl-Meyer fans, frictional flow in ducts, and linearized potential flow.... Read more.
AE61280 Convective Heat Transfer
Convective Heat Transfer is a graduate course focused on viscous effects and heat transfer taking place within fluids mostly at low subsonic speeds. We will derive the momentum equations and total energy energy equations of fluid flow using the fundamental laws of physics and then use those to solve basic problems involving heat transfer within boundary layers and pipes. ...

Skylounge
Image
Come relax in my skylounge, and check out some old pics when I was a bit younger (and perhaps cuter). Also find some opinion pieces I write in local newspapers, some recipes, some pictures I took of Busan and other cities. I also store some information of interest I come across by chance (and may soon forget otherwise..) in the thread “Stumbled Upon”. There are a few techie threads on how to install
