Computational Plasma & Reactive Flow Laboratory
Our research laboratory specializes in the numerical simulation of plasma & reactive flows such as those used in aerodynamic flow control, in plasma-assisted combustion, in plasma-based fuel reforming, as well as in plasma medicine. The plasma technologies here considered can improve the performance of aircraft either through Dielectric Barrier Discharge (DBD) actuators to increase the critical angle of attack...
CFDWARP : a CFD Code for Plasma & Reactive Flow
CFDWARP is a in-house-developed C code that totals more than 100,000 lines and that is specifically tailored to simulate efficiently plasma and reactive flows. CFDWARP is advantaged over other codes in that it integrates in coupled form the electron and ion transport equations along with the “bulk flow” transport equations using aerodynamic-scale integration steplengths....

AE23837 Numerical Analysis
A second-year undergraduate course, numerical analysis is the branch of mathematics that deals with the development and use of numerical methods for solving problems. Numerical methods outlined include numerical integration, numerical differentiation, root finding of linear and non-linear systems of equations, and curve fitting. For each numerical method shown in class, the student will be taught how to write a C...
AE63399 Compressible Flow
Compressible flow is a senior level or graduate course giving an introduction to gas dynamics with applications to wind tunnels, turbojet and ramjet inlets, rocket nozzles, and supersonic airfoils. The topics covered include isentropic flow in ducts with area change, unsteady and steady normal shock waves, oblique shock waves, Prandtl-Meyer fans, frictional flow in ducts, and linearized potential flow....
AE25168 Viscous Flow
Viscous flow is a senior-level undergraduate course focusing on the friction effects within fluid dynamics. The course starts with a derivation of the Navier-Stokes equations from Newton's law and then applies the Navier-Stokes equations to Couette flow within journal bearings, to external viscous flows on flat plates and airfoils, to internal flow within ducts and pipes, and to flows in pipe systems including...
AE23815 Heat Transfer
This is a third year undergraduate course about heat transfer phenomena. The course covers radiation, conduction in solids (steady and unsteady), external convection, viscous heating, internal convection, natural convection, and phase change. Example problems include the cooling of journal bearings, electricity cables, and the design of fins, hot wire anemometers, and hypersonic aircraft structural cooling systems....
AE25225 Introduction to CFD
“Introduction to CFD” is a 4th year undergraduate course focused on a brief introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). We'll see how to recast the fluid equations in generalized curvilinear coordinates, how to measure numerical error, and how to craft some high resolution flux discretization schemes for the Euler equations of fluid dynamics. Some of the assignments will involve using a CFD code...
AE61280 Convective Heat Transfer
Convective Heat Transfer is a graduate course focused on heat transfer due to fluids in motion. The course does not require prior knowledge in heat transfer theory. Emphasis will be put on explaining the origin of Fourier's law, the heat equation, the total energy equation commonly used in fluid mechanics, as well as how to apply the latter to various problems of interest....
AE68714 Computational Fluid Dynamics
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a graduate course that focuses on numerical methods solving incompressible viscous flow. Some focus is given on deriving the most-commonly used turbulence models (algebraic, 1-equation, and 2-equation) and how to implement them within fluid flow solvers. Sources of numerical error are also outlined along with techniques on how to assess them accurately. The course ends with an...
AE23834 Fluid Mechanics
This is a second year course giving an overview of the basic concepts in fluid mechanics. The topics covered include fluid statics, inviscid fluid dynamics, viscous fluid dynamics, and non-dimensional analysis. Emphasis is put on the derivation of the governing equations of fluid mechanics (Pascal's law, mass and momentum conservation equations, Bernoulli's equation, skin friction coefficient, etc) and on how to...
AE23832 Thermodynamics
Thermodynamics is a second-year course giving an introduction to gas and liquid physics. Topics include ideal versus non-ideal equations of state, the first and second law of thermo, conservation of energy using the control-volume approach, the Maxwell relations, gaseous mixtures, and chemical reactions. Example engineering problems include the analysis of pressurized tanks, air conditioners, and combustors....
Skylounge
Come relax in my skylounge, and check out some old pics when I was a bit younger (and perhaps cuter), some random opinion pieces I write in local newspapers, some recipes, etc.....
