CV/Resume Details
1. Summary (Cover Letter) - CV/Resume Part 1 [Mandatory]

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a highly qualified, CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) Technical Specialist who is seeking a challenging position in industry.

I have twenty years of progressive heat transfer, fluid dynamics and CFD experience within esteemed academic and industrial organizations such as University College of Swansea, Loughborough University of Technology, Building Services Research and Information Asociation (BSRIA), Ford Motor Company and Visteon Corporation.

Coupled with my strong technical, analytical, communication and organization skills, I am a driven professional who will quickly prove to be a true asset to my new organization.
My aspirations for career development are to apply my skills and expertise within a successful and forward thinking organization. I look forward to discussing a suitable opportunity with you in the near future.

Yours faithfully

2. Work Experience - CV/Resume Part 2 [Mandatory]

CFD Technical Specialist August 1997 - present
Visteon Corporation (Ford Motor Company/Visteon UK) - Essex, UK

Responsible for the CFD activities of the Powertrain Systems Division. Using CFD related software packages, conduct fluid flow related performance evaluation and hence design optimization of a wide variety of automotive components, including throttle bodies, air intake manifolds, water pumps, oil pumps, defrosting ducts, air induction systems, fuel jet pumps, carbon canisters, charged air coolers etc. Liaised with all team members at appropriate intervals, and prepared the final technical report, within the time and cost constraints set for each project.

Examples of Design projects:
a) CFD studies of air distribution within CYRUS and NIMBUS IAFM intake manifolds both associated with the Sigma 1.6 liter engine; Using the one dimensional engine performance simulation code WAVE, for providing boundary conditions for STAR-HPC, to predict, under transient conditions, the percentage of the airflow through each runner during one full engine cycle, as the cylinders intake valves open and close at their appropriate crankshaft angles.
b) CFD investigation of the stall condition in Jaguar's X400 fuel jet pump; Using HYPERMESH, PRO-AM and transient two phase flow VOF analyses in STAR-HPC.
c) Design Optimization of Jaguar's X400 fuel jet pump; Leading the development of a PATENT based on the optimized design of a pull-over fuel jet pump. The new improved design has significantly improved the "efficiency" of the jet pump (by just over 50%) and removed the possibility of it stalling, under low fuel level condition; Using ICEM-CFD and FLUENT.
d) Design optimization of a book-shelved Carbon Canister; Leading the development of a PATENT based on the optimized design of carbon canister ports and the ribs supporting the filter elements; Using ICEM-CFD and FLUENT.
e) Optimization of temperature and EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) concentration distribution within Volvo I5, Ford Puma and Honda Civic air intake manifolds; The optimized design reduces the maximum surface temperature of the intake manifold to less than 150oC, thus enabling the intake manifold design to be made out of plastic material saving on both weight and cost; Using ICEM-CFD and FLUENT.
f) Fin geometry optimization of the supercharger unit on the Visteon Torque Enhancement System (VTES); The new optimized design has improved the convective heat transfer rate by 20%; Using ICEM-CFD and FLUENT.
g) Pressure loss prediction and hence minimization across various Air Induction Systems related to engine programs such as Ford C1 Lynx, Land Rover L359 & L316, Audi C6S, Toyota Yaris, Chrysler JC49 etc...; Developed appropriate boundary conditions/modeling practice set ups in order to obtain close correlation with corresponding experimental tests; Using ICEM-CFD and FLUENT.
h) CFD investigation on time variation of damping coefficient at the high speed rotating surface of a new and innovative damping device; Using HYPERMESH and FLUENT and based on the extensive use of Dynamic Mesh (layering and Spring smoothing methods), Sliding Mesh and User Defined Functions.
i) CFD prediction of water droplet particle tracking within Ford T6 and Audi C7 air cleaner boxes; Using Discrete Particle Modeling module of FLUENT; This predictive tool was used to incorporate appropriate design features within each air cleaner box to minimize water migration to engine cylinders

Principal Research Engineer January 1994 - August 1997
BSRIA (Building Services Research And Information Association) - Bracknell, UK

Was responsible for the CFD activities of the Microclimate Centre at BSRIA, mainly focusing on the design evaluation and hence optimization of a wide variety of ventilation systems in buildings.

Responsibilities included conducting the full CFD analysis of airflow together with the preparation of proposals and project plan, break down of the costs, monitoring of the work schedule through full CFD analysis of airflow, documentation of the technical report and achievement of the time and cost targets with a proven profit record for each project.

Examples of Consultancy projects:
a) Migration of tobacco smoke; Using FLOVENT to assess the effect of alternative ventilation strategies and space partitioning in minimizing the migration of tobacco smoke in public buildings.
b) External airflow analysis of the Tesco superstore in Kensington; Using STAR-CD.
c) The effect of perimeter heating on cold downdraughts; Using FLOVENT.
d) Airflow and thermal comfort analysis within the GlaxoWellcome Headquarters building in Greenford; Using FLOVENT.
e) The effect of displacement ventilation and chilled beam on tobacco smoke concentration within Rothmans International building; Using FLOVENT.

Example of Research projects:
a) Air distribution in naturally ventilated buildings:
Identified the influential parameters, devised a plan, and embarked on a comprehensive parametric study of the performance characteristics of single-sided windows in office buildings, using CFD (FLOVENT and STAR-CD). Provided design guidance on the use and limitations of natural ventilation through various types of windows, in satisfying the appropriate thermal comfort criteria, for office occupants.

Post-doctoral Research Assistant June 1991 - January 1994
Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Technology - Loughborough, UK

Application of Computational Fluid Dynamics in rubber mixing; sponsored by Science and Engineering Research Council
Developed an academic CFD software package in FORTRAN 77 to solve the two dimensional Navier- stokes, Darcy (porous media), energy/turbulent kinetic energy, concentration/degradation and streamline equations and to predict the flow pattern and the associated phenomena for a wide variety of scientific and industrial problems in fluid mechanics and heat transfer.

The solution techniques were based on various Finite Element methods including: Galerkin, Petrov-Galerkin, and Least Square. In order to model the viscoelastic behavior of the rubber compound within a mixer, the suitability of various non-Newtonian constitutive equations were investigated through the options of power-law, Carreau, Maxwell, Oldroyd-B and Phan-Thien-Tanner models. In order to predict the free surface position of the rubber compound in the vicinity of a mixer blade under transient conditions, a psuedo-concentration approach was incorporated within the code.

Post-doctoral Research Assistant November 1986 - June 1991
Department of Mechanical Engineering, University College of Swansea - Swansea, UK

Heat transfer and fluid flow in rotating coolant channels (applicable to coolant channels of turbine rotor blades); sponsored by Rolls Royce and Ministry of Defence
Devised and ran an experimental program on an existing rig for the purpose of finding the effects of coriolis and buoyancy forces as well as Reynolds Number on the variations of heat transfer coefficient of air flowing along smooth and ribbed pipes of different cross sectional shapes.

Data acquisition and processing programs (written in BASIC and FORTRAN) were developed and practical design correlations were derived from the analysis of the results. A commercial CFD package (FLUENT/UNS) was used to simulate the experimental results.

Liaised with clients and sponsoring organizations regarding numerical results and further development work.
