My master thesis work surrounded Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) of viscous, turbulent
flow applying Large Eddy Simulation (LES) together with the Navier Stokes equations.

Current development is done through the Oasis project, an open source, high level Navier Stokes solver in Python
applying Finite Elements through FEniCS. The package is developed by my supervisor and associate professor
Mikael Mortensen, and Kristian Valen Sendstad. As of now the LES models included are:

- The Smagorinsky model
- The WALE model
- The One Equation Kinetic SGS-energy model
- The Dynamic Smagorinsky Model applying Lagrangian Averaging
- The Scale Dependent Dynamic Smagorinsky model applying Lagrangian Averaging
- The Static and Dynamic Sigma models by Toda et al.

Results may be found in my master's thesis, available here. I also got an article published during the work with my master's degree:
