Research is multifaceted, ranging from foundational advances in theory, methods and algorithms, to real-world impact in societal grand challenge problems.
Spectral wave modeling: The interactions between winds, the sea floor, circulation, and waves transfer significant amounts of energy that impacts both magnitude and timing of storm surge. The modeling of these complex interactions and phenomena is challenging as the physics of waves in space and time are accompanied by spectral effects.

Oden Institute faculty members have been centrally involved in the design and offering of UT Austin’s Bachelor of Science in Computational Engineering degree, offered by the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics.
The ADvanced CIRculation modeling framework (ADCIRC) is a research partnership into coastal ocean storm surge modeling developed through collaboration between Dr. Clint Dawson at the Computational Hydraulics Group (CHG) and the University of Notre Dame, the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, Carolina State University, the University of Oklahoma, and UT’s Center for Space Research. Other ADCIRC partners include US Army Corps of Engineers, NOAA, The Water Institute and the Texas Division of Emergency Management.
AEOLUS: Advances in Experimental Design, Optimization and Learning for Uncertain Complex Systems is a U.S. Department of Energy Mathematical Multifaceted Integrated Capabilities Center (MMICC) led by the Oden Institute and also involving researchers from Brookhaven National Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Texas A&M University.
The Oden Institute Center for Predictive Engineering and Computational Science is leading the development of high-fidelity simulations of inductively coupled plasma (ICP) torches as part of the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration Predictive Science Academic Alliance Program.
