Dr Duncan Borman

Dr Duncan Borman’s research interest is in understanding problems that involve multiphase flows that occur in numerous real world problems; his approaches involve developing computational models and applying and developing novel Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). This involves developing understanding of mixing in complex fluids where a chemical or biological processes maybe occurring  (e.g. bioreactors, fuel cells, combustion, high-speed jets, ventilation) and in problems that require prediction of moving boundaries and free-surfaces (e.g. air-water interfaces; understanding morphologies of solidifying/precipitating solutions, inverse problems). The research is reliant on the development of numerical codes, particularly in the area of boundary problems, but also makes use of a range of commercial and opensource solvers where suitable.  He works closely with the cross-faculty Centre for Computational Fluid Dynamics and he is involved in multidisciplinary research with colleagues across the University, UK and internationally.
