Statistical Fluid Engineering

Clarification of Turbulence Phenomena and Development of Efficient/Reliable Direct/Large-eddy/ Stochastic Numerical Simulation Methods for Turbulent Flows

  • Prof. Yasuhiko Sakai
  • Assoc. Prof. Yasumasa Ito
  • Assist. Prof. Koji Iwano

Turbulence is one of the unsolved problems in fluid dynamics research. In our laboratory, researches and education are conducted to clarify the mechanism of diffusion, mixing and chemical reactions in turbulent flows by means of experiments and numerical simulations. Flow phenomena related to biomechanics and aerodynamic sound are also in the scope of our research.
