Xudong Zheng, Ph.D - Complex Flow Modeling & Simulation Lab


Welcome to the complex flow modeling and simulation lab in the mechanical engineering department at the University of Maine.

Our research focuses on modeling complex flow phenomena using high-fidelity immersed boundary based computational method incorporating with massive parallel computing. The simulated flow field will be analyzed using modern flow analysis tool, such as POD, DMD and LCS. Current research interests including complex biomedical, physiological and biological flows with complex, moving boundaries and flow structure interaction as well as renewable energy applications.
