Yangwei Liu
Beihang University, China

Yangwei Liu is an associate professor in the School of Energy and Power Engineering at Beihang University (BUAA) since 2012. He is also Editorial Committee Youth Member of "Chinese Journal of Aeronautics" and "Acta Aeronautica et Astronautica Sinica". He was a visiting scholar in the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge from November 2016 to October 2017. He was also a visiting scholar in LMFA at Ecole Centrale de Lyon from November 2010 to February 2011. He received his Ph.D. degree in Fluid Machinery and Engineering from BUAA in 2009 and B.S. degree in Flight Vehicle Propulsion Engineering from BUAA in 2003. He focuses on CFD, turbulence and turbulence modeling, rotor-stator interaction, rotating stall, flow control in compressors. He proposed a new method to modify SA model using helicity to consider turbulence energy backscatter in 3D vortical flows. The modified SA model (SA-Helicity) could significantly improve predicting performance and has been implemented into several CFD codes, including the fastest CFD code Turbostream which is heavily based on the long line of codes from Prof. John Denton. He has won 9 invention patents, and published more than 70 peer-reviewed papers in journals and conferences. He was awarded the Beijing Higher Education Young Elite Teacher Project in 2013. He has been awarded a number of projects, including 3 projects from the National Natural Science Foundation of China, 2 projects form the Aeronautical Science Foundation of China, and 2 projects form the National Science Foundation for Post-doctoral Scientists of China.
