Welcome to the NADGOD Research Group and the Experimental and Computational Flow Dynamics Laboratory in the William States Lee College of Engineering at University of North Carolina-Charlotte (UNCC). This group is directed by Dr. Navid Goudarzi. The primary research focus area is on the fundamental analysis of fluid flow problems using:
- Invasive and non-invasive flow measurement techniques such as rotameter and particle image velocimetry (PIV), respectively.
- Numerical simulation techniques such as direct numerical simulation (DNS) and large-eddy simulation (LES).
The team uses fluid mechanics principles to develop numerical models and apply them to gain understanding of fluid flows and predict complex flows in practical engineering systems. Experimental techniques will be used to validate/improve the developed numerical models. Please see the “Projects” and “Research Interest Areas” for more information.
The team actively seeks students to work in the group. UNCC undergraduate students are strongly encouraged to contact Dr. Goudarzi (email@example.com) for senior design projects, honors theses, or graduate-level work.
NADGOD group has an active and continuous collaboration with industrial, state and federal governmental entities:
