Fluid Mechanics 2 - CE2-02-3
Role: Course Leader

The course builds on the fundamental concepts introduced in 1st year Fluid Mechanics. The governing equations of mass and momentum transport are derived in differential form. By making appropriate assumptions and using suitable mathematical methods, the equations are solved for a number of settings relevant to engineering applications. Students develop problem-solving skills essential to engineering practice of fluid mechanics. The course provides preparation for 2nd year Heat Transfer and 3rd year Fluid Mechanics.

Colloid and Interface Science - CE4-17
Role: Lecturer

This 4th year elective course introduces the basics of colloidal and interfacial phenomena and demonstrates how the energies of surfaces can be manipulated to give the desired properties to bulk materials.

Discovery Laboratory - CE3-07-5
Role: Supervisor (Multiphase Flow experiment)

The emphasis of the Discovery Lab is on the design–analysis–evaluation cycle. The focus is on solving an industrially relevant problem or delivering a set target by exploring an experimental space, rather than following a pre-defined procedure to generate experimental data. The Discovery Laboratory serves as a bridge between performing pre-defined teaching experiments and engaging in open-ended research.

Final Year Plant Design Project - CE4-01-02
Role: Facilitator (Formulated Products project)

The Design Project has the objective of giving students experience of advanced design practice by carrying out a complex design task in as realistic a way as possible. The desired learning outcomes include producing a comprehensive design in response to an open-ended brief, while working in a large team, under realistic time pressure and on the basis of limited information.
