Research project: Numerical modelling of inhomogeneous Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) hazards, with using OpenFOAM

Abstract

Currently, I am a Research Associate at Kingston University, London. My area of research is Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) with special emphasis on combustion, fire safety, explosion, turbomachinery, as well as other projects related to the oil and gas industry. Moreover, for my PhD. I am working on High-resolution CFD modelling of LNG hazards, with OpenFOAM programming.
