News & Updates
Welcome to the homepage of Dr. Tao Xing. I am an Assistant Professor of the Mechanical Engineering Department at University of Idaho. I am also a faculty of the Center for Clean Vehicle Technology of National Institute for Advanced Transportation Technology (NIATT). I received my Ph.D. from Purdue University in 2002. I am also a licensed U.S. Professional Engineer (P.E.). My research interests cover a broad range of thermal-fluid areas using theoretical and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), including but not limited to renewable energy (wind turbines), multi-phase flows, free-surface flows, ship hydrodynamics, quantitative verification and validation, heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning system. Recently, I extended my research to the area of experimental fluid dynamics (EFD). My teaching interests focus on integration of simulation technology into engineering courses and laboratories, developing effective formative and summative evaluation methods, and developing innovative teaching modules toward achieving ABET outcomes.
