Welcome to the Sherwin Lab website.
The Sherwin research group is based on the Department of Aeronautics of Imperial College London. We focus on the development and application of parallel spectral/hp element techniques for solving partial differential equations (www.nektar.info). Currently, we are applying these techniques using direct numerical simulation and stability analysis to a range of applications including biomedical flows and separated/bluff body flows of relevance to offshore engineering and vehicle aerodynamics. We are also developing high order compressible flow simulation methods.
Our group uses several variants of the C/C++ spectral/hp element method code Nektar++. Currently the group, in collaboration with researchers at the Universities of Utah and Exeter, continues to develop the spectral/hp element framekwork Nektar++. Details of this package can be found under in this paper
