The fluids research group at MOX is active in the development and application of innovative, accurate and efficient numerical methods for a variety of computational fluid dynamics problems. Main application areas are free surface flow for boat design and environmental applications, fluid-structure interaction, numerical methods for numerical weather prediction and climate simulation, simulation of volcanic eruptions, compressible and incompressible turbulent and reactive flows, simulations of heat transfer problems for thermal management.
