Our record of research productivity is balanced by our dediction to teaching. Our faculty have been honored many times over for both their innovative research and for their excellence in teaching. Some of the most recent honors earned by our faculty include:
MAE researchers have developed advanced computational techniques for Fire Simulation and multi-phase reacting turbulent flows.
UB MAE researchers in computational mechanics have developed a high fidelity volcanic landslide simulator to aid geologists in mapping the hazard areas at locations such as the island of Montserrat.
A Level Set Embedded Interface Method has been developed at Compuational Fluid Dynamics Laboratory to simulate Conjugate heat transfer for irregular geometries
MAE's Laser Flow Diagnostic Laboratory is a leader holographic particle image velocimetry, a three-dimensional, next generation flow diagnostics tool.
MAE's Automation, Robotics, and Mechatronics Laboratory is conducting research both on the theoretical formulation and experimental validation of such novel mechatronic systems as multi-robot collaboration.
The nonlinear estimation group is developing techniques for propagating uncertainties through nonlinear dynamical systems for better forecasting and output uncertainty characterization.
Study of Non-premixed flame-wall interaction using vortex ring configuration is done for the first time at the Computational Fluid Dynamics Laboratory.
