Computational Modeling

Systems exhibiting complex, coupled physics such as multiphase flow devicesĀ  require computer simulations to capture their behavior in detail. These models are multiscale in nature, requiring detailed models of small systems to capture the complete physics and create coarse-grained models to capture the salient features of industrial-scale devices. In the Boyce group, we seek to develop accurate models at all levels, constantly working with experiments to validate models and uncover important physical mechanisms.
