Advanced Fluid Information Research Center, Institute of Fluid Science, Tohoku University
operates the next-generation Integrated Supercomputation System for supercomputing in fluid science,
measurement fusion research of computer simulation and experiment, and advanced visualization of fluid information.
We share our outcome through the international symposium and public database.
When a commercial aircraft operates, about half of the total energy loss is due to the friction due to the viscosity of the air. Turbulent flow makes the friction increase, but 10% of the total energy loss can be reduced if the laminar flow can be maintained 50% on the wing.
The thrombus formation has been assumed not to occur in a left ventricle, which works as a pump sending a blood to a circulatory system, because of its high blood flow velocity. However, resent studies indicated the thrombus formation might occur in the left ventricle.
Modern industrial products, typified by electronic devices, are required to be supported by advanced thermal management such as control of heat generation and dissipation, and correspondingly there is a demand for the technology that enables us to customize precisely the properties of heat medium based on the molecular aspect.
