mathmech is on a distinguished road
I am pursuing my final year in BS Mechanical Engineering. I have a solid background in theoretical and computational fluid dynamics. I worked on fluid dynamics projects / did research internships using OpenFOAM, e.g. fluid-structure interactions (hydrodynamic modelling), turbulence modelling, multiphase flow simulations. I recently published a conference paper:
https://www.researchgate.net/publica...ter_simulation.
and planning to publish my other work in the Journal of Nonlinear Dynamics in Autumn. I am now applying for my MS at the universities offering the best fluid studies within Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering (2020 spring and fall). My intention is to gain a multidisciplinary expertise in the field so that I can work on a variety of projects from different industries/research projects. I have good mental flexibility to back me. I appreciate any suggestions on:
1. How to choose my lab not to be constrained to a single area.
2. How to summarize all these in a single SoP when I apply for grad schools.
3. Which labs in the world would be the best to apply for?

Good question, I would like to know what others say about this.



Personally I do not know any CFD groups outside Sydney (UNSW and Usyd have good labs for fluid dynamics and several CFD groups)



Did you try checking all recent publications tagged 'openfoam' or 'cfd' in a publications site i.e. Google Scholar etc and check which lab they're coming from and which topic is more interesting?

The last option you proposed is a good one. I will try that! Thank you!

Nice - you can also check which group they were funded by (in case of universities publications). Please share what you find.
