Transitional Flows and Multiphysics Couplings

The research activities of the ETCM group are devoted to the dynamics of external or internal flows by numerical, analytical and experimental methods. We are particularly interested in the study of flow instabilities, the transitional regimes or the turbulent tregimes of these flows. The sources of instabilities include mass or temperature gradients, the parietal friction, the interfacial tension, the Lorentz force, the thermo-acoustic coupling, phase changes, etc. To deepen the physical understanding of destabilization mechanisms, we develop cutting-edge numerical tools and are committed to a new experimental activity.
