Biography Research Teaching Publications

BASc, University of Belgrade, Yugoslavia, 1980 
MASc, University of Belgrade, Yugoslavia, 1989 
PhD, Queen's University, Kingston, 1993 

I am doing research in Fluid Dynamics (Computational and Experimental) and Combustion. In computational fluid dynamics (CFD) I am working on development of numerical methods for incompressible flow, including large eddy simulation (LES), multigrid acceleration, local grid refinement and non-staggered grid formulation. The emphasis is on advanced turbulent modelling, the accuracy of discretisation schemes, advances in grid generation, solver techniques and visualisation of numerical simulations. 

This term I am teaching MECH341 (Fluid Mechanics II) Engineering Measurements and Instrumentation) and MECH 444 (Computational Fluid Dynamics). 

In previous years I was teaching MECH 215 (Instrumentation and Measurement), MECH 241 (Fluid Mechanics I), MECH 864 (Engineering analysis), , MECH 934 (Advanced Topics in Numerical Modeling of Fluid Flow) and MEE513 at RMC.
