Welcome to the research group of Dr. Arturo Leon. Our main research interests are on the areas of hydraulic transients (single- and two-phase flows), resilient approaches to flood control, optimal reservoir operation under uncertainty, sustainable stormwater management and modeling, real-time control of complex hydraulic systems, computational hydraulics (CFD ) and physical modeling of hydraulic structures.
For more information about the members of our research group, our research interests, publications, teaching material, codes/softwares, current/past projects, our work in the news and experimental facilities please explore the left tab of this page accordingly.
This Fall (2016) we are moving to Houston!.
Posted April 28, 2016
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Houston is recruiting four (4) highly motivated and academically talented Ph.D. students from Applied Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or Civil Engineering. Candidates must have an excellent level on programming (C++, Matlab). Advanced knowledge on OpenFOAM and/or Laboratory measurements using imaging techniques are highly encouraged. The students will join the Department this Fall (2016). Please send your CV and contact information as soon as possible to Dr. Arturo S. Leon (firstname.lastname@example.org or Arturo.email@example.com). Please read more here
