The Computational Propulsion Laboratory (CPL), IIT Kanpur, is primarily focused on computation-based research in the area of Fluid Dynamics and Combustion. We are involved in both development, and application of algorithms for fluid flow, heat and mass transfer. At CPL, we work on cutting-edge research using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and their application to multidisciplinary engineering problems starting from Mesoscopic level to programs in Space, Energy, Aero-elasticity. Applications include all regimes of steady-unsteady flows in combustion as well as in gas turbines, acoustics, turbulence modelling, supersonic flows, fluid-structure interaction, conjugate heat transfer and multidisciplinary fluid flow problems. As a part of our team, you'll find yourself among the engineers from various disciplines in a dynamic atmosphere where you'll be constantly challenged to learn and grow.
The lab vision is to meet the challenges successfully and help to solve the problems using the large-scale computational power at its disposal. We are involved in the simulation of the problems in areas of RANS, LES, hybrid RANS-LES, DNS, Lattice-Boltzmann depending on its type and conditions. To further enhance the quality of research, we constantly work in collaboration with other experimental labs. Credit goes to the industrial projects that we receive, that our research and development keeps pace with the current and emerging technology of the world.
