The Team


Dr. Shaswat Saincher
Institute Postdoc
Developed the in-house code IITM-RANS3D. It is a three-dimensional, VOF-based multiphase Navier-Stokes model for fluid-structure and wave-structure interaction problems. The code is parallelized using MPI and hybridized with the potential code: IITM-FNPT2D. Capable of simulating interactions between waves and complex fixed and/or moving structures in a large domain.
