Fluid Dynamics & Fluid Structure Interaction

Welcome to our new website!

At the University of Strathclyde, Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering, our group offers an interdisciplinary and international platform for postgraduate students as well as researchers.

At our group we develop and apply a range of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) codes and algorithms with the aim to advance understanding of fundamental fluid problems and apply this knowledge to analyse and optimise fluid engineering problems.

We provide an open hub for academic-industrial cooperation, interdisciplinary communication and collaboration across different fields including biomimetics and marine renewable energy.

We are open for new student applications and industrial cooperation’s, please get in touch.

PhD student Hoi Yin Yung successfully secured a research grant under the A*STAR – Agency for Science, Technology and Research Research Attachment Programme (ARAP).

Warmest congratulations to Marvin Wright for passing his Viva. Special thanks to Dr Jia and Dr McGookin for their time and efforts as examiners.

The CFD-FSI research group enjoyed a wonderful social event together. A great opportunity to welcome new and visiting members to the group.

Professor Qing Xiao and Marvin Wright attended the Computational Fluid Conference 2023 in Cannes, France.
Marvin Wright was invited to hold a key note presentation at the Mini-Symposium on Computational Biomechanics and Biomimetics of Flying and Swimming.

We are pleased to announce that together with a consortium at the University of Strathclyde we have been awarded an EPSRC Research Grant!
