Welcome to the Fluids, Turbulent, and Fundamental Transport Lab (FT2L) at Texas A&M, Mechanical Engineering
We use computers to go where experiments cannot. Specifically in the field of fluid mechanics and heat transfer, the flow physics and structures involved are complex, time-dependent, and three-dimensional. This is often experimentally inaccessible (or prohibitively expensive). Therefore, we use thousands of processors on a supercomputer to solve for flow (LES and DNS). The data we generate is fully 3-D and time dependent, and allows for us to fully examine the dynamics and structures, often using advanced analysis techniques (POD, TOD) to mine the results.
