A/PROF Malcolm Davidson

Positions

  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling (Multi-phase flow)

Overview

OverviewText1

  • Malcolm Davidson is Leader of the Computational Fluid Dynamics Group. The group investigates fluid dynamics and transport phenomena in single and multiphase flows in process engineering with emphasis on both dispersed particle-fluid systems and deforming fluid interfaces.

    Current Research Activities
    Nano and Biomolecular Engineering
    Microfluidics
    Materials and Minerals Engineering
    Flow Process Modelling

    Professional Experience
    PhD in the area of physiological fluid dynamics. His subsequent research career developed broadly in the computational and mathematical modelling of fluid dynamics, with previous positions in the Australian Atomic Energy Commission and the CSIRO. His research extended into porous media flows before concentrating on industrial fluid flows with an emphasis on flow fundamentals.
