Welcome to Thermo-Fluid Dynamics Lab.

The Thermo-Fluid Dynamics Laboratory belongs to Next Generation Tatara Co-Creation Centre and Department of Mechanical, Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Shimane University, Japan. Our research interests span broadly over thermo-fluid-dynamic topics, especially in the fields of multiphase flows (melted metal flows and fuel spray flows) and reacting flows (combustion flows). Our research methodology is mainly based on numerical simulations (Computational Fluid Dynamics, CFD). We aim to tackle various issues, which are difficult but very interesting, in fluid dynamics. Have a closer look and we hope you enjoy our website!
