**********New Position Available**********
Welcome to the Computational Mechanics Laboratory, in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
We aim to develop state-of-the-art numerical tools and use them to analyze and design complex systems arising from mechanical, marine, biomedical, civil, aerospace engineering and so on. Current engineering foci of our group are on flapping wing aerodynamics, renewable energy harvesting techniques, numerical optimization, and nonhydrostatic mesoscale atmospheric modeling. The algorithm development efforts are on high-oder numerical methods (discontinuous Galerkin, flux reconstruction/correction procedure via reconstruction (FR/CPR), spectral difference/volume, etc.), shock capturing, and efficient algorithms for solving nonlinear systems.
