The High Temperature GasDynamics (HTGD) Laboratory, directed by Dr. Daniil Andrienko, focuses on computational and theoretical simulations of high speed and high temperature flows.
We apply first principles of molecular dynamics to describe the paramount of chemical and physical processes taking place in a hypersonic flow. A tight collaboration with experimental groups is another key species of our research. Our approach is multiphysical: we work at the junction of the following disciplines:
chemical kinetics and thermodynamics
computational fluid dynamics
We have two openings for highly motivated graduate students to join our group.
We have several projects available for undergraduate students.
