Noah VanDam

Welcome to the website for the Multi-phase and Reacting Flows group under Prof. Noah Van Dam. Our research focuses on high-fidelity, computational fluid dynamics modeling of complex flows, focused primarily on energy applications. Topics of interest include Lagrangian-Eulerian methods for multi-phase flows, machine learning for combustion models, and verification, validation and uncertainty quantification (VVUQ) of numerical simulations. Applications we study include internal combustion engines, gas turbines, and general multi-phase/spray systems.

Open Ph.D. Position

Ph.D. Position in Simulations of Marine Propulsion

A new Ph.D. student is sought to work in the area of simulations of new, high-reliability propulsion systems for marine applications. The position will be funded through a 1/2 RA-1/2 TA assistantship. Students will be responsible for conducting CFD simulations using HPC resources and post-process the results for presentation at conferences and in journal publications. This work is part of a larger collaboration with the United States Navy, and the student will be expected to work collaboratively with students in multiple research groups. Those interested in the position should email Prof. Van Dam a resume with full academic details, including GPA, and standardized test scores.
