Song Lin (Jason) Yang


Professor, Mechanical Engineering–Engineering Mechanics

  • PhD, University of Florida


Dr. Yang’s research interest is in the area of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), both in developing it as a tool and in using it to study problems in fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and combustion. He is using the KIVA code along with the Reynolds-stress turbulence model for engine flow simulation with spray and combustion. In addition, Dr. Yang is also working on the modeling and numerical simulation of diesel particulate trap (DPF) performance during loading and regeneration and the diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) converter code development.
