Our research aims to create integrated multi-fidelity frameworks to assist in discovery and elucidation of physical mechanisms in complex turbulent flows, which oftentimes contain dominant coherent structures, in order to provide computationally expedient toolsets for engineering design, optimization and uncertainty quantification. Coherent structures appear in many turbulent flows and are dominant features that are often seen as key building blocks in describing the flow field. Analysis and prediction of coherent structures can be a robust avenue to pursue insights into physical understanding and design of engineering models.
