    Course Instructors

    Dr. Paul Batten

    Dr. Paul Batten has many years’ experience in the numerical and physical modeling of fluid dynamics and turbulence. He received his Ph.D. from Southampton University, England, before taking up a position at the Manchester Metropolitan University, where, as a Senior Research Scientist, he worked on the modeling of flow-induced resonance inside cavities and weapons bays. In 1995, Dr. Batten joined UMIST's department of Mechanical Engineering as an Honorary Lecturer working on a British Aerospacefunded project to develop anisotropic turbulence closures for high-speed jet and afterbody flows. In 1999, Dr. Batten joined Metacomp Technologies, Inc. As a Principal Scientist at Metacomp, he has been developing modeling practices for unsteady flows and acoustics and is leading the development of the acoustics software suite, CAA++, along with major contributions to the development of CFD++, including Riemann solvers, turbulence modeling and hybrid RANS/LES. Dr. Batten acts as reviewer for a number of international scientific journals and has more than 60 refereed publications in the form of journal and conference proceedings.

    Dr. Uriel C. Goldberg

    Dr. Goldberg is a Principal Scientist at Metacomp Technologies. Before joining Metacomp in 1996 he served as a Research Associate at UMIST, Manchester, England. His previous experience includes 13 years of research and development positions at Rockwell Science Center, General Electric's Military Jet Engine Group and AVCO's Systems Division. He received his Ph.D. from Case Western Reserve University in 1984. His current activities involve fluid mechanics-related models, including turbulence and transition modeling with applications to a broad range of flow regimes. He is the author or co-author of over 75 publications.
