The simulation of realistic flows and analysis of experimental or numerical databases for geophysical, industrial or biological applications requires the development of numerical methods. The AERO group develops fundamental research on advanced numerical methods in the context of high performance computing (HPC). This work has led to the development of original methods for flow analysis, prediction and control.
Research activities in the AERO group are organized into four research topics:
- Advanced Numerical Methods and HPC, where we develop accurate tools for the simulation of realistic flow and data post-treatment.
- Flow Dynamics, where we develop techniques for structure identification and investigation of flow instability mechanisms
-Uncertainty Quantification, where we develop probabilistic methods to characterize predictions in the presence of uncertainty about the system.
- Control, where we develop optimization and control strategies for real-life applications, based on model reduction techniques and estimation procedures.
