Farhat Research Group
The Farhat Research Group (FRG) develops mathematical models, advanced computational algorithms and high-performance software for the design and analysis of complex systems in aerospace, marine, mechanical and naval engineering.
They contribute major advances to simulation-based engineering science. Current engineering foci in research are on the aerodynamics of micro aerial vehicles (MAVs) and Formula 1 cars, ballistic fabric for lightweight shields, nonlinear aeroelasticity of fighter jets and high-altitude long endurance (HALE) aircraft, thermal management of hypersonic vehicles, underwater acoustics and imaging, and underwater implosion. Current theoretical and computational emphases in research are on high-performance, multiscale modeling for the high-fidelity analysis of multiphysics problems, and efficient model order reduction for time-critical applications such as design and active control.
