Research Activities

Agamemnon Varonos joined the research team of N.T.U.A.'s Aerodynamics Laboratory in September 1995.

During his studies at N.T.U.A., in the mechanical engineering department, he was specialized in aeronautical engineering with emphasis on fluid dynamics. He also pursued post-graduate studies at the Von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics in the field of turbomachinery.

Today he is a Ph. D. candidate at N.T.U.A and his activities concern basic as well as applied research in computational fluid dynamics. His work is concentrated in combusting flows, turbulence modeling and higher order discretization schemes.

To date he has successfully applied the above CFD models to boiler combusting flows, car aerodynamics and experimental configurations for basic combustion research.

His research has also environmental aspects, since he will in the near future, implement a NOx prediction model for combusting flows.

His work is mainly funded from European Union Research Projects and is coordinated by Professor George Bergeles.
