Impact of Computational Science and Engineering

Learn more » Who We Are » Publications »


Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) is now an integral part of modern science and engineering. Computation is often called the third leg of science and engineering, complementing the two traditional legs of theory and experiment.

CSE is a rapidly growing multidisciplinary area with connections to the sciences, engineering, mathematics, and computer science. It focuses on the integration of knowledge and methodologies from all of these disciplines to create powerful problem-solving tools for a wide range of important and timely problems in science and engineering (see the recent SIAM CSE report).

The CSE group at the University of Wyoming is dedicated to promoting collaboration between UW research groups with interests in computational methods, providing common resources to member faculty, students and staff to facilitate such colloboration and to enable larger multidisciplinary projects that are not feasible to be carried out by individual research groups.

Computational Fluid Dynamics

Computational fluid dynamics is the simulation of moving fluids using computers. Traditionally developed in the aerospace fields, CFD has been used extensively for aerodynamic simulations with the goal of replacing wind tunnel testing and flight testing for aircraft development programs. CFD has also impacted automotove engineering, process design, and biological fluids.

Computational Combustion

Computational combustion is an important and growing field. In many applications, combustion simulations involve many of the aspects of computational fluid dynamics, with the added complications of reacting chemistry with associated heat release and prodcut formation. Combustion simulations must usually track the production and consumption of multiple species as well as the reaction rates and diffusion between these species.

High Performance Computing

High performance computing research is concerned with making software run efficienctly on massively parallel computer architectures. Current day supercomputer hardware often contains many thousands of compute cores, and in certain instances may contain of the order of a million cores running concurrently.
