About Professor Krajnovic

Professor Krajnovic pioneered the use of Large Eddy Simulation (LES) technique for the study of vehicle aerodynamics flows. He has written widely on application of unsteady simulations such as LES and hybrid approaches (such as Detached Eddy Simulation (DES) and Partially-Averaged Navier Stokes (PANS)) in aerodynamics of road vehicles and trains. His current interests include: prediction of aerodynamics flows, development of hybrid numerical approaches (such as PANS), vehicle aerodynamic shape optimization and flow control for vehicles.

Prof. Krajnovic is head of Vehicle Aerodynamic Laboratory at Chalmers. Established in 2009, Vehicle Aerodynamic Laboratory is devoted to fundamental and applied numerical research in vehicle aerodynamics. Education of a new generation CFD engineers and researches in vehicle aerodynamics is the core of Vehicle Aerodynamic Laboratory.

Most aspects of ground vehicles aerodynamics using unsteady CFD simulations were for the first time studied by Prof. Krajnovic and his co-workers. Examples of publications produced during more than 15 years of his research activity in the field can be found here.
