June 2011

The research group of Professor Sean Garrick (MSI Fellow) at the Computational Transport Phenomena Laboratory in the Department of Mechanical Engineering uses MSI resources to model and simulate turbulent reacting flows. Jun Liu, a graduate student in the Garrick group, was a finalist in the poster competition at the recent MSI Research Exhibition. An article about his poster, which described direct numerical simulations of homogeneous metal vapor nucleation in practical flows, is planned for the Summer 2011 issue of the MSI Research Bulletin, which will be published in August 2011. The image above is taken from the poster. Pictures of all the Research Exhibition finalists can be found on the event webpage.
