Welcome to Computational Aerodynamics and Flow Physics Lab

The Computational Aerodynamics and Flow Physics Lab (CAFPLab) focuses on fundamental studies that provide advances in understanding and predicting the complex behavior of transitional and turbulent fluid flows through multi-fidelity simulations (DNS, LES, hybrid RANS/LES, RANS). Specific topics include hypersonic aerodynamics, green aviation, and automotive aerodynamics/aeroacoustics. We specialize in developing state-of-the-art parallel CFD software that runs efficiently on the world's largest supercomputers.

Research Opportunities

If you would like to be considered for an undergraduate/graduate or postdoc research position with the CAFPLab at OSU, please send your resume and a statement of interest to our research director, Prof. Lian Duan (duan.322@osu.edu).
