G. Research Topics

Mohammadhosein Masouminia is broadly interested the behavior of complex flow systems far from equilibrium. In particular, a running theme in his research is the interaction between free surface flow and vegetation. He seeks both to understand the physical principles that govern the spontaneous emergence of low-dimensional structure in high-dimensional systems and to harness them for engineering applications. There are three main research topics which are studied by him.

  1. Turbulent Flows

Almost all the natural flows have a complex behavior that needs to be understood and investigate. Research topics: turbulence in two and three dimensions, with a focus on coherent structures and the geometry of turbulence; the transport of inertial, anisotropic, and active particles in turbulence; the erosion of granular beds by fluid flows and subsequent sediment transport.

  1. Computational Fluid Dynamics

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has the wide range of applications in industrials as well as in hydraulic studies. Research topics: Eulerian and Lagrangian methods; Reynolds transport equations; phases interaction.

  1. Applied programing in civil engineering and hydraulics

The development and application of numerical models and high-performance computational techniques to the study of fundamental processes that influence the dynamics of the flow. Research topics: divergent dam; river; spillway.
