Group of Prof. Jenny


The research areas of Prof. Jenny's research group include probability density function (PDF) modeling of turbulent reactive flows, multi-phase flow in porous media, and multi-scale modeling of complex physical phenomena; mainly related to fluid dynamics. New applications areas of PDF methods initiated by the Jenny group include radiation and light scattering in turbid media and the assessment of uncertainty in porous media flows. The group of Prof. Jenny is active in the development of new models and numerical algorithms for the efficient and accurate solution of PDF transport equations and other multi-scale problems. An overview of the different areas of expertise including current and past research projects is given in the table below.

Teaching activities of the group are in line with the outlined research topics and include courses on fluid dynamics, turbulence modeling, and numerical methods applied in computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
