Chair Professor, Director of Center for Computational Science and Engineering Department of Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering
Dr. Lian-Ping Wang received a Batchelor’s degree in Mechanics from Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China in 1984, and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Washington State University, USA in 1990. He was then a Visiting Research Associate at Brown University, USA from 1990 to 1992, after which he was a Research Associate at Pennsylvania State University, USA from 1992 to 1994 and an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Delaware, USA from 1994 to 2001. He became an Associate Professor in 2001 and a Professor in 2010 at the University of Delaware. In 2017, he was appointed a Chaired Professor at Southern University of Science and Technology, China. His main research interests include computational fluid dynamics, turbulence, particle-laden flow and immiscible multiphase flow. In recent years, he has focused on the mesoscopic CFD method based on Boltzmann equation and its application in direct numerical simulation of complex flows. Relevant applications include transport of colloids in saturated and unsaturated soil porous media, cloud microphysics, and modeling of complex flows. He has published over 130 refereed journal papers and delivered over 100 invited talks worldwide. Dr. Wang became an elected Fellow of American Physical Society in 2011 and an elected Fellow of American Society of Mechanical Engineers in 2016, and an Invitation Fellow of Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (9/2016 – 3/2017). Currently he also served as Affiliate Scientist of NCAR.
Chen Tao is the first author, Professor Liu Tianshu is the author of the communication, Professor Wang Lianping and Professor Chen Xie participated in the academic paper: "Relations between skin friction and other surface quantities in viscous flows", recently published in the journal Physics of Fluids (31, 107101 , 2019). This paper discusses the exact relations between skin friction and other important dynamical and kinematical quantities on a stationary curved surface in a viscous flow. These relations can be further used to explore the near-wall coherent structures in turbulent flows and understand its dynamical roles in turbulence production. This is the first academic paper by Chen Tao. This paper was selected as an Editor’s Pick paper when it was published.

MAE505/MAE403 Computational Fluid Dynamics（open to both undergraduates and graduate students）
Due to availability of high-speed computers and advanced algorithms, direct numerical simulation of complex flows along with theoretical analysis and physical experiments are considered the three pillars of fluid mechanics research. High-performance fluid-flow simulation is a rapidly evolving interdisciplinary field combining physics, mathematics, algorithms, computer science, and engineering. This course focuses on direct simulation methods of viscous fluid flows, including finite difference methods, finite volume methods, and Boltzmann equation-based mesoscopic methods; numerical convergence, physical accuracy and stability analysis; and programming experience with Fortran code. This course trains system analysis skills and classroom presentation skills.
MAE7001/MAE321 Multiphase Flow（open to both undergraduates and graduate students）：
This course covers physical description of fluid-solid and fluid-fluid interfaces, diluted two-phase flow and dense two-phase flow with particles or droplets; local and average equations for mass, momentum and energy exchange, dimensionless parameters; numerical methods for two-phase flow and related industrial and environmental applications.
