Welcome to the PHILOFLUID Research Group homepage at Politecnico di Torino. The group research activity includes: fluid turbulence, stratified fluid fields, hydrodynamic stability and collective behaviour of travelling waves in sheared flows, numerical and laboratory simulation of hypersonic jets, astropysics in the laboratory: mid-term stellar jets simulation, analysis of data on solar wind and related magnetic field.

A few related applications are: subgrid scale (LES, SGS) modelling, turbulent  mixing, dynamics of cloud-clear air interfaces,  energy transport by travelling waves in microchannels, wall and wake flows, under-expanded jets, collimation of astrophysical jets as seen in an Earth laboratory under partial physical similitude. The research activities are performed in collaboration with several national and international partners. We are located at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (DIMEAS) of Politecnico of Torino. We developed  several in-house CFD codes which are available Open Access in this site. Please note that we now have fixed the Software Download pages. Please, feel free to contact us directly here.

December, 2015:  new hydrodynamic stability software added.

June 6, 2015:  turbulence software page updated: MPI3.0, FFTW, PLUTO LES module download page updated.
