The department actively participates in the research programs of all of the following:
CUBRC is an independent, not-for-profit, multidisciplinary research center, founded as a strategic partnership to bring together scientists and engineers for synergistic research and to provide significant growth opportunities in Western New York.
The Center seeks to foster interactions and collaboration among faculty
at the University at Buffalo by facilitating cooperative, interdisciplinary activities and multi-investigator research projects focused on research and development and educational activities in the areas of spin effects and nanostructures.
The Center for Multisource Information Fusion focuses on how users can
be helped to assess complex situations more accurately by combining
effectively the core evidence in the massive, diverse and sometimes
conflicting data received from multiple sources.
NYSCEDII provides state-of-the-art engineering design technologies and
expertise to New York State industries to achieve a greater degree of
innovation and competitiveness.
The Center for Computational Research maintains a high-performance
computing environment, high-end visualization laboratories, and support
staff with expertise in scientific computing, software engineering,
parallel computing, grid computing, visualization, advanced database
design, and networking.
Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability and the third leading cause of death in North America. In 1991, with grants from the Margaret L. Wendt Foundation and the Diasonics Corporation of America, Drs. L. N. Hopkins and Lee Guterman founded a neuroendovascular research laboratory to investigate new ways to prevent and treat stroke. Today their laboratory has evolved into the Toshiba Stroke Research Center at the University at Buffalo, the most advanced angiographic research facility in the world.
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.
