Computation and modeling of turbulent flows, kinetic theory of gases, combustion.
Joel Ferziger does simulations of turbulent flows and calls himself a 'numerical experimentalist'. To do simulations, it is also necessary to develop new numerical methods, and for large eddy simulations sub-grid scale models are needed. He is also interested in modeling turbulent combustion. He has investigated the effect of turbulence on a flame surface, models for turbulent combustion, and flame extinction and heat transfer near a wall.
