Assistant Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics
Haifeng Wang received his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Cornell University in 2010. Before joining Purdue, he was a postdoctoral research associate at Cornell University.
He has developed a systematic framework for computational modeling studies of gas-phase turbulent flows and turbulent combustion with sophisticated models combining state of the art sub-models such as large-eddy simulations, probability density function methods, stochastic models, and energy-conservative numerical techniques. High performance computations using the framework have been performed on over 9,000 cores for laboratory scale turbulent jet flames.
His primary research interests include turbulence and combustion modeling, fluid mechanics and computational modeling, multi-phase flows, propulsion and energy systems.
