Focus Groups

Flow Analysis, Simulation, and Turbulence Research Group (FASTREG)


BACKGROUND

In fluid dynamics, a fundamental field of science & engineering, flow visualization and simulation is an important and active research area. Applications of this research are inter-disciplinary and far reaching, including energy production technologies, vehicle design, and even weather forecasting. To achieve common goals and to streamline the utilization of resources, FASTREG (formerly known as FAST) has been established since 2014 by a group of researchers that share mutual interest in fluid dynamics. The group focuses on both the experimental and the computational side of fluid dynamics, with specialization on the topic of turbulence modeling as well as visualization of flow. Members of the group hold expertise in studies of gas turbine cooling, spray characterization and shock capturing, amongst others. This research group provides a point of reference for members of the UTHM community as well as the public in general who seek advice and consultation for applications related to fluid flow. In the future, the group aims to develop a centralized infrastructure that is capable of catering for high performance computing. 


RESEARCH AREAS

The group is committed to carry out intensive research in the following areas:

  • Turbulence modelling 
  • Numerical method development 
  • Flow visualization and measurement techniques 
  • Physics of flow

CONSULTANCY

FASTREG is well equipped to conduct research and provide consultation in:

  • Gas turbine and cooling solutions
  • Spray characteristics of fuel injectors
  • High Mach number fluid transport simulations 
  • Pump performance testing and training
  • Flow measurement and visualisation using 2-D and 3-D stereoscopic Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV)
  • Inter-disciplinary applications involving fluid flow
