CSCVR faculty member awared NIA grant
August 23, 2017
CSCVR faculty member Scott Field (Mathematics) was recently awarded a $26,560 grant from the National Institute of Aerospace to assess the viability of discontinuous Galerkin methods for solving challenging fluid simulation problems (such as rocket reentry) of interest to NASA Langley. Work will be carried out with collaborators Alireza Mazaheri (NASA Langley) and Aakash Kardam (UMass Dartmouth masters student).
