Dr. Stephen Tullis








My group is doing research in mainly applied fluid dynamics, both computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and experiments. Complex flows with multiple physical interactions are of particular interest, and combustion simulation and modeling


Topics of current interest include:

- wind turbines, particularly vertical axis turbines

- blade hydrodynamics

- fluid structure interaction

- DNS and RANS modeling of particulate flows

- DNS and LES of turbulent premixed combustion

More details are available in the research pages.


I teach two undergraduate courses: MECH 3F4 Numerical Methods (Fall), and MECH 4U3 Compressible Flow (Winter). I also teach graduate courses on combustion and turbulence during the Winter Term. See courses for details and links.


Current Opportunities:

MSc or PhD positions in unsteady hydrodynamics for sports applications. Experience with competitive sport (rowing, canoe, sailing) is a definite asset, besides a mechanical / fluid mechanics background
