Organisational profile

Scientific Computing is a fast-growing, highly interdisciplinary field that brings together methods from numerical analysis, high-performance computing and various application fields. It is the area of research that provides better simulation tools aimed at many different applications.

Many of our current application areas are energy-related:

  • Wind-turbine and wind-farm aerodynamics,
  • Tokamak magnetohydrodynamics,
  • Plasma-assisted combustion,
  • Battery technologies,
  • Porous media flows,
  • Electronic circuits,
  • Bio-fuels,
  • Lighting.

Other application areas to which our research is directed are:

  • Fluid-structure interactions,
  • Hypervelocity impacts,
  • Shape optimization.

Numerical methods on which we currently do research:

  • Symplectic time-integration methods,
  • Physics-compatible finite-volume methods (exponential schemes, multi-D upwind schemes, limiters, ...),
  • Generalized Krylov methods,
  • Evolutionary design algorithms.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-being
  • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
  • SDG 8 - Decent Work and Economic Growth
  • SDG 13 - Climate Action
