Research Interests:

Since joining the faculty at the University of Florida, Professor Mei has engaged in research in the areas of multi-phase flow and computational fluid dynamics. His research topics include theoretical and computational analyses of the equation of motions of particle and bubbles at finite Reynolds number in fluid flows, dispersion and collision of particles in turbulent flows, nucleation, growth and departure of vapor bubbles near the heating surface boiling heat transfer, design and implementation of online solid concentration sensor for large pipe slurry system, simulation of dense powder flows, and the development of lattice Boltzmann method as efficient and accurate computational method for fluid flows. His work also include two-phase flow analyses in the diffusion-driven-desalination process driven by the waste heat derived from low pressure condensing steam, computational analysis two-phase flow chilldown in the transport of liquid hydrogen, and computational thermal fluid dynamics in PEM fuel cell. Dr. Mei has published over 50 journal papers and holds two patents for innovative inventions that result from the applied research activities.
