Project Description

Supervisor: G D Weymouth
Co-supervisor , B Ganipathisubramani

Project description

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is increasingly used to analyze the hydrodynamic features of the built and natural environment; from warming ocean currents to high-speed ocean liners. However, the computational cost of such simulations is still too high for engineering purposes without making simplifying assumption which greatly limit the accuracy.

Machine Learning appears to be the panacea of our time, but it does little to address this issue on its own. Most state-of-the-art machine learning methods require many thousands or millions of examples to learn from, which is typically impossible for large scale hydrodynamic problems.

In partnership with the Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence, this project will develop new and useful methods for integrating data-centric approaches such as machine learning directly into CFD simulations and analysis, with the goal of reducing their cost while increasing their accuracy.
