Phil and Jean Myers Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Emeritus
College of Engineering
Chris Rutland’s work is in turbulence, combustion and sprays, with primary application areas being internal combustion engines, emissions control, and fuel efficiency. This work uses advanced computational fluid dynamics, large eddy simulation (LES) and system-level modeling. His research program is part of the Engine Research Center, within which there are many collaborations with other modeling and experimental projects.
