Bio


Dr.-Ing. Lin Fu is a postdoctoral fellow of CTR (Center for Turbulence Research) working with Prof. Parviz Moin at Stanford University. Before he joined CTR, he did postdoctoral research with Professor Nikolaus A. Adams in Technical University of Munich. In the same institute, he obtained his Ph.D. degree with a grade of Summa Cum Laude. His on-going and future research includes fundamental study of flow physics including turbulence, transitional flows, multi-phase flows, and electrically conducting fluids. His research dedicates to an improved theoretical understanding of these complex fluids and contributes to optimizing the engineering quantities of interest, e.g. drag, heat transfer, mixing ratio, etc. The potential applications involve the flow control of transonic and hypersonic vehicles, scramjet hypersonic propulsion systems, combustion, microbubble dynamics, cavitations, plasmas, liquid metals, and etc. In the perspective of scientific computation, he develops novel numerical methods including the high-order TENO (targeted ENO) schemes for hyperbolic conservation laws, the CVP (Centroidal Voronoi Particle) and SPH (Smoothed-particle hydrodynamics) based domain decomposition method, SPH method and mesh generation method. Recently, he focuses on hypersonic flows by Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) and Large Eddy Simulation (LES) approach. He is the reviewer of about 13 journals and has authored or co-authored more than 20 publications on prestigious journals, e.g. Journal of Computational Physics, Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering, Computer Physics Communications etc.
