Research interests

  • Energy
  • Thermo/fluids
  • Hydrodynamics of circulating fluidized bed boilers
  • Computational fluid dynamics

Main research interest are in the areas of Computational fluid dynamics and fluidization. In recent years, CFD research interests were directed at the development of the Piece Wise Parabolic Finite Analytic Method. Currently, a primitive variable body fitted coordinate algorithm is being developed.

Fluidization research is in the area of measurement of particle velocities in cyclones and fluidized beds, as well as bubbles in gas solids and gas/liquid flows Vector Scientific Instruments markets a particle velocity instrument developed from this research.
