Dr Mohamed Mohamed known as Dr Mohamed Mohamed, BSc, MSc, PhD, FHEA
PhD in Mechanical Engineering (Computational Aerodynamics)
Mohamed started his academic career after obtaining his PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering (Computational Aerodynamics) form Department of Mechanical Engineering, The University of Sheffield. Mohamed used an in-house CFD solver to investigate the performance of a hybrid RANS/LES approach in simulating the aerodynamic characteristics of unsteady turbulent separated flows over different aircraft wing sections and its control using synthetic jet actuators. Dynamic Grid technique was implemented in the Detached-Eddy Simulation code to o simulate the diaphragm movement in the synthetic jet. The solver was parallelized applying the Message Passing Interface (MPI) platform for communications between processors, which is essential for the three dimensional unsteady flow problems.
Mohamed did a one year post-doctoral researcher at the University of Manchester, School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil engineering. Mohamed did a one year post-doctoral research at the University of Manchester, School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil engineering. During that time, he worked in a project named as “Smart Blade Design” to enhance the aerodynamic performance of Horizontal-Axis Wind Turbine blades using active flow control techniques. In 2016, he moved to the University of South Wales and appointed as Lecturer in Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering.
