Supervisor’s research interests:
Conjugate heat and mass transfer Natural, mixed and forced convection Heat and mass transfer in porous media Fluid flow and heat transfer in nanofluids Turbulent heat and mass transfer Convective-radiative heat transfer Numerical analysis Heat transfer and flow pattern in electronic systems Computational fluid dynamics
Research highlights:
The proposed analysis will be performed using modern computational techniques (finite difference method, finite volume method, lattice Boltzmann method and others). For numerical simulation in-house computational codes will be developed. Investigations will be conducted in cooperation with foreign scientists from USA, Canada, Great Britain, Romania, Italy, China, India.
