The Environmental Fluid Dynamics (EFD) Laboratory focuses on development of efficient numerical tools for calculation, analysis, optimization and prediction of fluid flows and transport processes in environment, climate, hydrology and water resources at different length scales. This research topic is interdisciplinary, which will attract the scientists from different disciplines (Mathematics, physics, biology, environment, hydrology, oceanography, water resources, climate, etc.) and will offer opportunities to collaborate between Departments and Research Centers within Seoul National University, as well as with other universities, research institutions and industry. The Lab also provides an environment in which the teaching and research can proceed as effectively as possible, and it will exploit applications of numerical modeling in different aspects of fluid flows.

In order to carry out large-scale simulations, we definitely have a High Performance Computer System (HPC), and most of codes have been paralleled. Following is a HPC configuration setting up at our CFD laboratory:
