Research Focus

Develop numerical approaches such as CFD\DEM\FEM for solving engineering problems


Nature and industry are composed of three phases of gas, liquid and solid. The behavior of "fluid mechanics" of gases and liquids can be effectively simulated by computational fluid dynamics (CFD); the behavior of "elastic mechanics" such as the movement and deformation of solids can be effectively simulated by the finite element method (FEM).

The solid can also exist in the form of solid particles, such as PM2.5, sand, high-energy micro-nano metal powder and pills. Since the aggregate of solid particles can have the compressibility of gas, the fluidity of liquid and the deformability of solid in different space and time, "particle" is also called the fourth phase substance. "Kinetics" is one of the 125 scientific problems to be solved in the "Science" magazine in 2005. The discrete element method (DEM) can effectively simulate the behavior of "Kinetic Kinematics" of particles, but DEM has high computational cost problem which could be solved by the coarse-grained DEM model.
