I belong to the Research Group Fluid Dynamics and Acoustics of UME. My current research is mainly dedicated to the development of computational models for two-phase liquid-gas flows, and it focuses on simulation techniques for cavitation processes. I am also interested in hydroacoustics and fluid-structure interaction problems in the context of maritime engineering.
Research project (2011-): Full-Mach-number-range numerical simulation of cavitating flows by multiphase compressible flow models. (funded by DGA)
Application example: Simulation of a high-velocity underwater projectile [test proposed by Saurel et al. JFM 2008]. A high-speed liquid flow over an underwater obstacle generates a cavitation wake (the image shows the vapor volume fraction and the vapor mass fraction at two different times).
