Employment History
Graduate Research Assistant August 2005-present
Georgia Institute of Technology
Atlanta, GA
PhD Research, Georgia Institute of Technology (Fall 2005 – Present) • Tentative Dissertation Title: ‘Investigation of Orientation Diffusion in Semidilute Fiber Suspension with lattice-Boltzmann simulation.’ • Performed particle-level numerical simulation of suspension rheology using coupled lattice-Boltzmann method (LBM) with discrete external boundary force (EBF) method to account for fluid-solid interaction (FSI) in Stokes flow. An Eulerian-Lagrangian framework is used model rigid or flexible fibers in Newtonian fluid. • Investigated phenomenological and mechanistic models for fiber orientation diffusivity in suspension with LBM-EBF simulation data. The findings have implications in processing pulp-paper and fiber-reinforced composite materials. • Performed parallelization, performance and scalability analyses of lattice-Boltzmann (fluid phase only) serial C-code. Texas Advanced Computing Center’s Lonestar cluster is being utilized with a ‘development phase allocation’ from ‘TeraGrid’ cyber infrastructure facility. • Analyzed fiber orientation anisotropy in a paper machine ‘Headbox’ (a converging channel) for dilute suspension in turbulent flow. A Fokker-Planck type equation which includes a rotational Péclet number with empirical dependence on fiber length, turbulent intensity and contraction ratio of the channel is solved with Finite Difference method. • Conducted brief experimental (LDV analysis) study of fiber suspension in turbulent flow and post processed fiber images (taken with high-speed camera) with LabView (IMAQ).
Graduate Research/Teaching Assistant 2003-2005
Univ. of South Carolina
Columbia, SC
Master’s Research, University of South Carolina (Spring2003 – Summer2005) • MS Thesis Title: ‘Computational Thermal Hydraulics investigation on 5×5 Freon Loop.’ • Performed numerical sub-channel analysis (with commercial code VIPRE) in multi-rod bundles for Westinghouse Electric Company’s Nuclear PWR Test facility, South Carolina, Columbia. • Assessed the validity of using thermal diffusion co-efficient (measured in water) for a particular mixing vane design into an expedient testing fluid (such as R-11) for the same vane design. • Incorporated R-11 properties into VIPRE to predict critical heat flux (CHF) in R-11 test rod bundle. Subsequently, an empirical CHF correlation for R-11 was developed and tested in the Fortran code VIPRE.
