Flow Modeling & Simulation
The members have extensive academics, industrial and research backgrounds in fluid flow modeling and simulation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is one of the branches of fluid mechanics that uses numerical methods and algorithms to solve the governing equation and analyze problems that involve fluid flows. The members have experience in the modeling of Newtonian, non-Newtonian, steady, unsteady, compressible, incompressible, laminar, turbulent, single phase and multi-phase flow of pure fluid and through porous media. The members are active in the Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) research to support the oil and gas companies in the development of further exploration of oil. Flow Modeling and Simulation Cluster offers CFD/ Process Modeling/ EOR Simulation training, customized solution, collaboration and consulting.
The following are the active research projects:
- Nawaf H. Saeid & Pg. Dr. Hj. Mohd. Esa Al-Islam – Dual-Engine, Dual-Fan Hovercraft Design and Fabrication.
- Duraisamy Sambasivam Sankar – Mathematical Modeling of Carreau fluid model for Pulsatile flow of blood through tapered artery with overlapping stenosis.
- Nurul Hasan – Laser cut Water in Diesel Emulsion (WIDE) in a Homogenizer, collaboration with UM.
- Nurul Hasan and co – Enhanced Oil Recovery Experiment and Flow Simulation: Chemical Flooding.
