Computational engineering - overview


Our simulations in this area deal with the development and application of computational models and simulations, tightly integrated with high-performance computing, to solve complex physical problems arising in engineering analysis and design (computational engineering) as well as natural phenomena.

In recent years, we have investigated common relevant phenomena such as the study of trailing vortices that form during aircraft takeoff and cause delays of several minutes between consecutive starts, therefore creating waiting queues during peak traffic hours.
