Who we are
Based at Imperial College London, we develop and use numerical methods in order to investigate turbulent flows on supercomputer.
Understanding turbulent flows and how to use them in various engineering applications is the motivation behind our research.
With the help of our collaborators in France, the US and in Brazil, we have developed Xcompact3d, a suite of high-order finite-difference highly-scalable flow solvers designed for low cost and accurate simulations of turbulent flows. Xcompact3d is based on the 2DECOMP&FFT library to manage the domain decomposition.
Github Xcompact3d: github.com/xcompact3d
Our current main effort is to port Xcompact3d and the 2DECOMP&FFT library to GPUs.
More recently, we started looking at the potential of quantum computing for computational fluid dynamics.
We can offer PhD projects (with or without funding) in the research areas mentioned above. Please have a look at the "opportunities" section.
