Fluid Dynamics and Technical Flows

Major research interests

Prof. Dr. Thévenin is particularly interested in developing further advanced simulation approaches allowing an accurate description of complex flows. His research mainly relies on Direct Numerical Simulations or Lattice Boltzmann models, combined with tools suitable for complex geometries and configurations, like Immersed Boundaries. The main research interest of D. Thévenin lies on multiphase flows, possibly involving additionally complex physicochemical processes, like reactions. After having derived and validated appropriate simulation tools, they are coupled with an in-house software library based on Evolutionary Algorithms, opening the door for simulation-driven flow optimization. This has been in particular applied in the last years to innovative turbomachines as well as to a variety of biomedical flows.
