**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
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
