The mission of the Heat and Fluid Transport Engineering Research (HaFTER) Laboratory is to investigate state-of-the-art problems in the field of fluid mechanics and heat transfer within complex engineering systems. Problems of interest include multiphase flow and fluid-structure interactions in aerospace and ocean engineering applications, free-surface flow in river and coastal environments, and the optimization of industrial processes involving fluid dynamics. Computational fluid dynamics techniques are developed and validated to address challenging problems in engineering. These include three dimensional highly nonlinear flow with one or more phases, such as the bubbly flow and spray generated by ships. The laboratory is also home to a mechanical platform for the experimental investigation of various liquid sloshing phenomena.
