Student One's project is on bio-inspired design of propellers focused on geometrical criteria for optimum performance with respect to efficiency, speed and stealth. Using Immersed Boundary Method incorporated to DNS, the hydrodynamics of three geometrical tailfin shapes are examined in a combined pitching-heaving motion. 

Objective: bio-inspiration in design of new propeller and energy harvesting technologies (Geometry)

Student Two's project is on bio-inspired design of propellers focused on effects of flexibility on optimum propulsion performance with respect to efficiency, speed and stealth. Using Immersed Boundary Method incorporated to DNS, the hydrodynamics of fish tailfins are examined in pitching, heaving and combined pitching-heaving motion. 

Objective: bio-inspiration in design of new propeller and energy harvesting technologies. (Flexibility)

Student Three's project is on analytical modeling of turbulent boundary layers at high temperature gradients along a vertical wall. The governing equations for buoyancy-driven heat and fluid flow are derived without the low temperature gradient assumptions. This research has direct applications in the energy industry, geothermal processes and aerospace. 

Objective: derive an analytical model to characterize turbulent boundary layers on heated vertical walls

Student Four's project fosucses on CFD simulation of cardiovascular flows with an emphasis on heart transplant procedure development. This is an interdisciplinary research with the School of Medicine to design a mechanical system to keep hearts active during the transplant procedures. 

Objective: technology development to improve the success rate in heart transplants
