Environmental Thermo-Fluid Dynamics Lab
At the Environmental Thermo-Fluid Dynamics Lab, we are engaged in a wide range of research topics pertinent to the basic dynamics of flow, mass and heat transport and their coupling at the interface between the atmosphere and the earth surface. Such interdisciplinary research problems are inherently of multiscale, multiphysics nature. Examples of current areas of interest include fluid dynamics and transport phenomena in and over complex terrains, energy performance and function of animal and human-built structures, and thermos-fluid dynamics of natural disasters. We use a variety of state of the art computational and theoretical methods and develop prognostic models to better understand the underlying physics in these complex problems.
