Biography

Professor Frank T Smith FRS does research predominantly on biomedical and industrial applications, as Goldsmid Chair of applied mathematics at UCL. He has wide experience in 2D and 3D model studies of fluid dynamics for various flow rates, including interaction, unsteadiness and local-global interference, and solid mechanics, using nonlinear theory and reduced computation or direct simulation. These include viscous layer theory, viscous-inviscid interactions and purely inviscid global theory and computations covering a wide range of geometries, involving a variety of analytical and numerical methods including compact-differencing, finite-element, spectral, Eulerian and Lagrangian approaches, and volume-of-fluid methodology. Author of over 270 refereed papers, he collaborates within UCL, nationally and internationally, ongoing collaborations being with Germany, Japan, USA, India and Canada, and he has taken part in many research programmes. He currently supervises three PhD students and one research assistant. Frank has contacts with NHS hospitals and industry, with applications to turbine blades, car-forewing design, food-sorting devices, multiple branching motions, liquid crystal processing, rotors, multiple blade-wake interactions, bifurcation properties, and fistula design. He is also Director of the Lighthill Institute of Mathematical Sciences and head of the London Taught Course Centre for PhD students in the mathematical sciences.
