Bashir Alsaidi

Research Interest:

  • CFD, Design, analysis, modeling, optimizing, Simulation, and Fluid-Solid interaction of engineered systems.

Education:

  • PhD, Computer and Information System Engineering
  • M.E., Mechanical Engineering, Tennessee State University, USA, 2013.
  • B.Sc., Mechanical Engineering, Mosul University, Iraq, 2002.

Professional Experience:

  • Research Assistant, CFD analysis, design, and experimental investigations of multiple aerodynamic applications, Aerodynamic lab, Tennessee State University.
  • Research Assistant, Intelligent Tactical Mobility Robotics Lab, Tennessee State University.
  • Maintenance Engineer, Asiacell Telecommunications Company, Iraq.

Project Scope:

  • Experimental and analytical study of an aerodynamic performance on airfoil wing morphing. The research aims to design an optimum combination of multiple types of wing morphing profiles. The effect of Fluid-Solid interaction is one of the major design factors in this project. MATLAB, SolidWorks, and ANSY-Mechanical model are the software used in this study.     
  • Design and implementing cooling system of Gas turbine blades by creating CFD models using ANSYS- FLUENT. The performance of gas turbine engines can be improved by increasing the inlet gas temperature. Turbine blades can be damaged by high gas temperature, unless additional cooling mechanisms are incorporated to maintain the blades below an acceptable temperature limit.

Academic Activities:

  • Lone Star Competition-2012: Involved in Design and Fabrication of Battery Powered Rope Ascender, Organized by Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio.
  • CAD Design-2011: Unique mini industrial stamp, Tennessee State University.
