Research Projects

Current projects

SPH modelling of buoyant flow in water bodies

This project aims to examine the buoyant flow in a vegetated littoral zone of a water body with a focus to understand and assess the flow mechanisms and characteristics for a wide range of natural conditions. By testing suitable SPH schemes and numerical approaches, thermal convection in natural water bodies with and without aquatic vegetation is to be modelled.
