Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering
BioProfessor Darve's research is focused on the development of numerical methods for large scale scientific computing with applications in biomolecular simulations, acoustics, electromagnetics, and microfluidics. In these applications, the computational expense of simulating large and complex systems is very significant and in many instances beyond current computer capabilities. He is developing innovative numerical techniques to reduce this computational expense and enable the simulation of complex systems over realistic time scales. Professor Darve also uses processors with novel architectures, such as GPUs and the Cell processor, for scientific computing. Applications range from particle simulation to fluid dynamics and solving partial differential equations.

Dr. Davidson’s research interests span the fields of gas dynamics and combustion kinetics. During his tenure at Stanford University he has developed a wide array of optical and laser-based diagnostic methods for combustion chemistry and propulsion studies and has advanced the use of these diagnostics in shock tubes. He currently manages the shock tube operations in the High Temperature Gasdynamics Laboratories at Stanford University and actively mentors the approximately two dozen graduate students who use these facilities. He is a co-author of over 200 research publications and has been a member of the editorial advisory board for the International Journal of Chemical Kinetics and secretary of the Western States Section of the Combustion Institute.
An overview of the shock tube studies performed at Stanford under Prof. Hanson’s and Dr. Davidson’s supervision can be found in the six volumes entitled “Fundamental Kinetics Database Utilizing Shock Tube Measurements” available at http://purl.stanford.edu/kb621cw6967.
