Monte and Usha Ahuja Distinguished Lecture Series - Speaker: Parviz Moin, PhD, Stanford
A reception at 2 p.m. in Scott Laboratory E100, the lecture will be held at 3 p.m. in Scott Laboratory E001.
With the exponential growth in computer power, high fidelity numerical simulations have provided unprecedented comprehensive datasets for the study of the mechanics of turbulent flows. Over the past decade there has been considerable progress in high fidelity simulation of multi-physics turbulent flows at reduced computational cost. A review of modern large eddy simulation technique (LES) for computation of complex turbulent flows will be presented. The future outlook for computer architectures and routine use of LES in industrial settings will be discussed.
About the speaker: Parviz Moin is founder of the Center for Turbulence Research and the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering. He pioneered the use
of direct numerical simulation for the study of turbulence physics and has
written widely on the structure of turbulent shear flows. Moin is a Fellow of the
American Physical Society, AIAA and American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
He is a member of the United States National Academy of Engineering and the
National Academy of Sciences.
The Monte and Usha Ahuja Distinguished Lecture Series aims to attract highly accomplished and illustrious individuals, as well as those on their way to national and international renown. In addition to showcasing the work of current experts in the engineering field, this lecture series will inspire Ohio State students to achieve excellence and eminence in their own future careers in government, industry and academia.
