Research Interests and History
Foluso Ladeinde's research focuses on the development of theoretical and specialized computational techniques for the solution of model problems in high-speed aerodynamics. Combustion, heat transfer, and fluid dynamics in aerospace propulsion systems are the application areas. Since about a decade he has been developing advanced computational techniques, including those that execute in parallel supercomputers. Ladeinde is a member of the multi-university AFOSR/DARPA Consortium for Crystal Growth. He has published more than 70 referenced and archival journal papers, many of which are on combustion, direct and large eddy simulation of turbulence, and turbulence modeling. Ladeinde's research is funded by NSF, AFOSR, DARPA, and commercial industries. He is a member of the Board of Directors of Brooklyn Technical High School and current member and past Chairman of the External Review Board of the NASA Center for Aerospace Research at the North Carolina A&T University in Greensboro. Ladeinde is a member of the American Physical Society, American Society of Mechanical Engineers and an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
