To improve environmental predictions and energy use efficiency, we investigate the turbulent flows and the associated transport phenomena. In particular, to identify the scalar sources in turbulent flows, we are developing novel strategies integrating finite sensing data into numerical simulations to obtain three-dimensional (3D) flow structures and the associated thermal and concentration fields. In addition, by applying the optimal control theory, we aim at deterministically optimizing various energy devices without relying on the subjective insight of the investigators. We have recently conducted flow simulations inside 3D complex geometries, such as vascular networks in biological systems and heat exchangers, and developed algorithms to optimize such complex geometries for better performance.
