Experience

Research, Teaching and Consulting

 

        Currently, engaged in the research work related to vibrations of elastic beams that could represent turbo-machinery blades. The problem of determining a mathematical estimation of the natural frequencies and modes of bending vibrations is important at an early design stage of turbo-machinery blades. The failure of any one of several thousands rotating turbo-machinery blades may result in system shutdown. All of the blades possess different characteristics such as setting angle, root fixing etc., and there are many other factors (e.g., the rotating speed, disk radius, blade pre-twist, blade asymmetry etc.), which play an important role in blade design. Because of the inherent mathematical intricacies in describing mathematical models that are necessary at an early prototype design stage of turbine blades, many important engineering problems remain unsolved. 

                 Additionally, I have published extensively in the area of mathematics education ( Problem Solving, Micro-Teaching) and applied mathematics (Elastic Vibrations), and have presented papers in various national and international meetings. Also, I have published research papers in the area of elastic beams vibrations problems in the proceedings of the International Conference on Computational Engineering Sciences (ICES) meetings held at Hawaii, Costa Rica, and Atlanta. 

              The professional services include research, teaching and consulting at national and international institutions of higher educations that are listed below:
