Dr Fei Wang

Dr. Fei’s main research interests are in hydrodynamic simulation, including multi-phase flow, laminar flow control.

His research in UCL focuses on the multi-phase flow simulation especially in the coalescence on a moving liquid- liquid interface surface. Considering the optimal analysis with one phase flow or the VOF method, the main goal is to find the details in the micro-scale film.

His research has also concentrated on Large Eddy Simulation (LES). The Large Eddy Simulation (LES) code tool was developed with several sub-grid scale model to deal with the different situations in order to capture the details of the transient procedure including the change of vortex and alignment structure.

Hybrid laminar flow control (HLFC) technology is considered a comprehensive way to reduce the friction and decrease the heat transfer. His team combine the experiments and numerical simulations to analyse the principle of HLFC method which how suppressing disturbance increase and delaying transition. HLFC model with micro-holes appears a high efficiency for reducing friction drag and thermal isolation in experiment and CFD.
