Dr. Wang is interested in applying computational tools to solve engineering fluid dynamics problems and study flow physics. In particular, he employs high-fidelity flow simulation methods including Large-Eddy Simulation (LES), Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS), and hybrid RANS/LES approaches to obtain time-accurate solutions for complex turbulent flows. Such solutions are needed in many applications such as flow-generated sound (aeroacoustics and hydroacoustics), flow-induced optical distortions (aero-optics), separated flows, and flow/noise control, which constitute the main emphasis of his current research. He also develops mathematical models and numerical techniques for computational fluid dynamics and aeroacoustics.
