“Studying at the CFD Lab has traditionally been tied to achieving two goals: first, is to bring mathematics and physics into the rigorous fundamental modeling of hitherto empirically-based areas of research; and secondly, rendering this achievement useable by industry. Lab members are CFD codes’ creators, and not CFD codes’ users. The CFD Lab has an excellent research environment. We have established an excellent hierarchical structure that permits students to be closely supervised individually, and once a week as a group, where they share their accomplishments, difficulties, and perfect their presentation skills.”
