Computational Plasma & Reactive Flow Lab — For Prospective Masters and PhD Students
 NRF Grant (2010 — 2013)
We won a 3-year grant from NRF (National Research Foundation of Korea) to do computational studies of weakly-ionized airflow around aircraft. Specifically, the grant will be used for:
 (i) Further developing the numerical methods to simulate weakly-ionized airflow (ii) Performing numerical simulations of the MHD generator located within supersonic aircraft and (iii) Performing numerical simulations assessing the impact of plasmas on the separation regions within supersonic boundary layers
We are looking for graduate students who would be interested in studying these topics either at the Master's or PhD level. Specifically, we are looking for students who have aptitudes at computer programming and at understanding fluid flow physics. Being reliable, precise, and a bit “perfectionist” are also desirable qualities.
