Welcome to the mfX research group!
We are a large computational group at the University of Edinburgh investigating a range of multiscale flow problems that target important engineering challenges of the 21st century in health, transport, water and energy. Our research spans fundamental engineering science at the nano/micro/meso/macro scales, multiscale method development, highly parallel software development that run on supercomputers, and industry-focused engineering applications.
Examples of our recent work include: non-equilibrium gas transport through porous media for safer oil/gas reservoir management; nano/micro bubble cavitation dynamics for disease targeting; nano/micro-engineered surfaces with improved performance (e.g. anti-icing, marine drag reduction, nanotube water filtration membranes, evaporating cooling nanopipes); liquid-surface damage analysis; granular and pedestrian flow predictions.
We actively collaborate with researchers from the UK and around the world, and engage with various industrial companies to adapt our techniques for their problems.
Martin’s recent work on seeded MD of surface icing has been published in Journal of Chemical Physics, and a separate book chapter by Springer Press! Congratulations to Martin, and you can see his paper here, and book chapter at this link.
