|Biography:||David O. McLaurin received his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from Mississippi State University in 2010. His academic background is in computational fluids, and he completed his graduate research in computational geometry--specifically unstructured mesh repair/generation. He joined the research faculty at CAVS/HPC2 in 2010 where he is currently an Assistant Research Professor in the Computational Fluids Group.|
He also teaches classes in the Mechanical Engineering Department:
ME3113 Engineering Analysis (Fall 2012)
ME3313 Thermodynamics I (Spring 2011/12)
ME3513 Heat Transfer (Fall 2011)
ME4833/6833 Intermediate Fluid Mechanics (Fall 2012)
ME8333 Convective Heat Transfer (Sprint 2013)
Professional Society Membership:
American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)
|Research Interest: ||David enjoys all aspects of computational sciences; from computational fluids to computational geometry and most things in between.|
