Project Title: 
Modeling and Simulation of Turbulent, Reacting, Multiphase Flows

The Garrick group is interested in the modeling and simulation of multiphase reacting flows. These include particle formation and growth dynamics in laminar and turbulent flow systems, combustion problems, and spray dynamics. This research draws on fluid dynamics, computational fluid dynamics, aerosol dynamics, chemistry, and physics to develop computational tools to simulate atomization, particle formation, coagulation, coalescence, aggregation, break-up, and other physico-chemical processes. The underlying processes and dynamics are modeled in a fashion that render them amenable to simulation via high-performance computing. The group utilizes a variety of simulation techniques including DNS and LES to perform both scientific and engineering simulation and analysis.

Research by this group was featured on the MSI website in September 2017: Modeling Multiphase Flows.
