Theory and simulation have become increasingly important tools to understand physical phenomena in regimes that are inaccessible to experimental studies. This includes such diverse areas as molecular properties of materials, fluid flow and turbulence, particulate generation in chemically reactive flows, and nanoscale heat transfer. Faculty in the department are actively engaged developing new theoretical and numerical tools to expand the range of current theories and simulation approaches.
