Collins, Lance

College of Engineering
Professor, Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (lc246@cornell.edu)
http://www.mae.cornell.edu/people/profile.cfm?netid=lc246

Regions: Global
Research Specializations:

  • Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering
    Combines simulation and theory to investigate a broad range of turbulent flow processes, including: (i) turbulent coagulation of aerosol particles (with applications to cloud processes and global climate modeling; (ii) experimental and numerical investigation of Lagrangian statistics in turbulent flows; (iii) mixing and chemical reaction in turbulent flames; (iv) turbulent breakup of microstructures (e.g., drops, polymers and red blood cells); (v) drag reduction due to polymer additives. A unifying theme is the importance of small-scale (micro-turbulence) transport to these phenomena. A second focus is on developing a new class of turbulence models that are capable of describing micro-turbulence processes.
