Greg Sheard is currently an Associate Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and Director of The Sheard Lab at Monash University, Australia. He received his PhD from Monash University in 2004, for which he was awarded both the Faculty of Engineering Kenneth Hunt Medal and the Monash University Mollie Holman Doctoral Medal for the year’s best PhD thesis. Prior to his appointment in 2006 to a permanent academic position with the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Monash, he held an Australian Postdoctoral Fellowship as part of an Australian Research Council funded collaboration between the Faculties of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences and Engineering. During this time he was awarded a Young Researcher Fellowship Award for Exemplary research in fluid mechanics, funding his travel and participation in the Third MIT Conference on Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge MA, USA, June 2005. His work has featured in Stories of Australian Science 2012, published by Science in Public, Australia’s largest non-government science communication business, VLSCI Science Story #9, and Australian Life Scientist magazine. Dr Sheard has secured more than $1.7-million in Nationally Competitive grant funding, and has secured continuous extensive time allocations on Australia’s major high-performance computing facilities worth more than $100k per year. He is the author of over 150 research publications, editorials and patents. He has supervised 7 PhD candidates to completion, and has served as examiner for 9 PhD theses and over 130 manuscripts submitted to leading journals including the Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Physics of Fluids, the International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer and the Journal of Fluids and Structures. He chaired the highly successful 9th Australasian Natural Convection Workshop held at Monash University, December 2015, and was an Organiser for the International Conference on Computational Fluid Dynamics in the Minerals and Process Industries in 2006, 2009 and 2012. He has also chaired numerous keynote addresses and regular sessions at major international conferences.

Dr Sheard built and maintains an advanced numerical code for the simulation of two- and three-dimensional incompressible fluid flows based on the spectral-element method. Spectral-element methods combine the flexibility of finite-element approaches towards discretising complex flow domains into a grid of discrete elements with the exceptional convergence properties of spectral methods. This code has since been extended with linear stability analysis and transient growth analysis capabilities, quasi-two-dimensional and three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamics simulation, and natural convection simulation capabilities.

Hybrid imaging/modelling: A new paradigm for understanding the lung.

Our lungs are essential to sustain our lives, yet the details of lung biomechanics are barely understood because the available tools: imaging, modelling and simulation have significant limitations. Imaging is largely limited to providing structural information; simulation is severely restricted by a lack of validation; and inverse modelling is critically hampered by a lack of spatially resolved inputs. Our multidisciplinary team is uniquely positioned to solve these problems through the hybridization of our world-leading functional lung imaging
technology with state-of-the-art modelling, providing for the first time, the capacity to see details with the
resolution of imaging, richness of modelling and reliability of the finest measurements.

The elusive upper bound of heat transfer in horizontal convection.

The question as to whether lateral variation in global ocean buoyancy resulting from low solar radiation near
the poles and higher temperatures in the tropical regions (known as horizontal convection) is a driver for global ocean currents is critical to our understanding of this complex and delicate system that maintains Earth’s temperate climate. This question hinges on the relationship between heat transport and strength of
buoyancy forcing towards global scales: this project proposes a landmark experimental effort supported by
detailed simulations to probe the ultimate regime of heat transport in horizontal convection. The project will inform the direction of future ocean and climate modelling efforts to the benefit of humanity.

Past projects

Methodologies for resolving high Rayleigh number transitions in convection and elucidating instabilities in polar vortices.

Although the behaviour of the rotating air masses at Earth’s poles is poorly understood, these polar vortices are a driving force in Arctic and Antarctic region climate events and may explain certain periodic variations in Australian climate. By developing a new technique for modeling convection flows, this in-depth examination will contribute to the modelling of these vortices for improved prediction of current Australian and global weather patterns. In addition, an enhanced knowledge of polar vortices is critical in correctly predicting the future evolution of our climate. These outcomes are of considerable importance to Australia’s agricultural sector, water planning and bushfire management efforts.

Supersonic flow past micro-scale particles: Industrial applications.

Droplet-based materials processing is a method currently used in the manufacture of light-weight, high-strength metal alloys for use in a wide range of industries. Critical to the successful use of such processes is an accurate knowledge of the cooling rate of micro-sized droplets within high speed flows, with velocities greater than the speed of sound. Current understanding of the cooling rate relies upon empirical knowledge. This project intends to provide world first, highly-accurate numerical and experimental research to determine the thermo- and fluid-dynamics for flows around micro-scale spheres. The overall aim of this project is to determine an accurate model for the cooling rate of droplets in high-speed flows.

Fluid Dynamics of Circulation: Focus on the Kidney.

High blood pressure is a major national health problem in Australia and is related to the development of heart disease. There is now compelling evidence for a crucial role of the kidney in the control of blood pressure. There are 3 features of the renal circulation that are unique to the kidney. These appear to be critical for the ability of the kidney to control blood pressure. Using laboratory models, a team of engineers and physiologists will investigate fluid flow within the renal circulation, focusing on these 3 unique aspects. We will use models of the renal circulation to study aspects of its control that cannot be studied in the kidney itself. It is expected that strategies will emerge to tackle the problem of hypertension.
