FLARE Lab @ ShanghaiTech University focuses on fundamental research of fluid simulations by developing advanced statistical kinetic methods, with coupling to rigid and deformable solids, as well as scientific visualization and rendering on fluids. Both classical and quantum fluids are studied by simulation and visualization. The lab also conducts research on unmanned aerial vehicles, including their design, control and navigation, with hardware system implementations. Based on the foundation of these researches, many potential applications are being explored, which include but are not limited to computer graphics (animation and special effects), computational design and fabrication, medical diagnosis, intelligent robot training, aerial photography, tracking and inspection, etc. The lab is also building a large-scale multi-node multi-GPU computational platform on cluster computers to support a series of these applications.
