Roger L. Davis
Roger L. Davis has nearly 30 years of experience in computational fluid dynamics, fluid mechanics, propulsion system design/analysis, turbomachinery, and aerothermal design system development. He worked at Pratt & Whitney for 9 years where he developed design systems and fluid dynamic prediction tools. He also worked at the United Technologies Research Center for 17 years developing computational tools for steady and unsteady, viscous flows around aircraft airfoils and rotating machinery for gas-turbines, automotive fans, and air-conditioning systems. He has been a Professor at the University of California, Davis, since 2002, where he teaches courses in fluid dynamics, propulsion, heat transfer, turbomacinery, and parallel computing in fluid/thermal sciences. He also performs research in unsteady fluid dynamics, parallel computing simulation techniques, and design systems.
