Summary of Expertise: Listed with other top experts in: 
A significant portion of Expert's career has been involved in solving pollution problems for a wide range of combustion systems, including furnace flames, gas turbine combustion, and internal combustion engines. His work has led to significant reduction in pollution via combustion modifications. He also has extensive experience in swirl flows.
 • 

combustion system

 • 

combustion system pollution control

 • 

combustion engineering

Expert has over 20 years of experience in the mathematical modeling of practical systems, including flows with chemical reactions. These studies have provided cost-effective means to design and develop combustors.
 • 

flow field modeling

 • 

flow field diagnostics

Waste generation is a growing problem in the world. Expert has been actively involved in the development of advanced concepts for thermally destructing solid and liquid wastes produced by a wide range of sources (both domestic and industrial) with minimal environmental impact.
 • 

waste thermal destruction

Expert's findings have shown the significant effects of combustion chamber geometry and input operational conditions on combustion and emissions. His studies have led to minimizing or terminating pollution system control device use with the combustor, and the system can meet all the environmental pollution regulations. Additionally, Expert has over 25 years of experience in gas turbine combustion, performance, energy efficiency, and pollution.
 • 

internal combustion

 • 

spark-ignition engine

 • 

internal combustion engine combustion chamber

Expert's experience in different particle sizing techniques and optical diagnostics techniques has led to the understanding of critical factors affecting measurement in different systems and under diverse conditions. He has also studied the application of different diagnostic techniques for the measurement of flow rate, temperature, concentration species, size, and velocity.
 • 

soot

 • 

particle combustion

 • 

optical diagnostics

Expert has significant work experience with both the fundamental and applied nature, and understands the problem of fouling and the deposition of heat exchangers. Factors governing the deposition of particles and soot in heat exchangers have been identified. His studies assist in alleviating or minimizing the fouling of heat exchanger systems.
 • 

heat exchanger fouling

Combusion of future fuels, which are generally of low grade, provide unique challenges to combustion engineers from the points of view of emissions, stability limits, heat transfer, and thermal loading. A significant portion of Expert's career has been spent on the combustion of alternative and hazardous waste fuels.
 • 

alternative-fuel combustion

 • 

hazardous waste fuel combustion

 • 

hazardous waste fuel

Expert's considerable experience in fires assists in the establishment of the causes of fires. Particle and droplet combustion is used in most practical energy conversion systems. His extensive expertise in this area also assists in better mixing of fuel and air.
 • 

spray combustion

 • 

waste destruction

 • 

fuel oil combustion
