Details on Dr. Narain and his Team’s Areas of Expertise
Fluid Mechanics (Theory, Experiments, and CFD). Example: thin-film (mm to mm-scale) flows, stability, pulsatile flows, larger (cm to m-scale) laminar/turbulent flows.
Heat Transfer (Theory, Experiments, and Computations). Example: flow-condensation, flow-boiling, pulsatile flows, and contact-line flow-physics.
System Design. Example: design of flow-loops with hardware fabrication (including components) and software (including flow-control, sensing, signal-processing, and DAQ), and development of new preliminary design approaches for thermal systems.
