Simulating Urban Transport Across Scales
iUTAH Research Focus Area
This project has the following two objectives: (1) develop and use a highly complex model for energy, moisture, and momentum fluxes with tree-scale resolution over a domain footprint of several square kilometers, and (2) conduct field experiments to validate the aforementioned model as well as understand linkages between tree energy/moisture budgets and microclimate.
Brian is a PhD student in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Utah. His past research interests have included turbulent momentum and mass transport in canopy flows as well as energy budgets in urban and environmental settings. His work has primarily focused on developing and implementing numerical models to study these systems.
