(Oil and Gas)
## Academic Load with Chemical Engineering Teaching: Transport Phenomena, Fluid Mechanics/Heat Transfer/Mass Transfer, CFD. ## CFD Leader, High Performance Computing: Leading a team to run Molecular Modeling/EOR/CFD/FEA/Process Modeling problem to run parallel on HPC. ## Head, Advanced Simulation Lab: Heading CFD, FEA, Process Modeling, Reservoir Simulation, Flow-Assurance

Research Academic  
Centre of Multiphase, the University of Newcastle, February 2006 to December 2008
• Developing computational models for mineral recovery (5 different projects) [Diffusion of nanoparticles/film model/UDF-surface force/single collector/Hydrophobic force]. • Collaborating within Australia and International partners. • Validation of computational models developed. • Multi-scale modeling (modeling the various surface forces to determine numerically the best models for surface forces). • Multiphase modeling including recovery of nanoparticles using bubble.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow  
CSIRO, January 2004 to January 2006, Melbourne Australia
Developed a novel process for making light metal using computational modelling. • Model developed is used to make an experimental rig where light metal is produced. • Compared CFD (computational fluid dynamics) results to test experimental data. • Provided additional insight into the experimental programs to save energy. • Maintained/reviewed best practice guidelines, minimised environmental pollution.

Chemical Engineering  
Doctor of Philosophy, CFD Studies on Fluid-Particle Interactions on Free Surface Flows, Jun, 1999 to Aug, 2003
Executive Summary: During PhD I used CFD to analyse the complex, turbulent three phase flow associated with impinging and submerged jets in close proximity of a free surface adjacent to a rotating drum. The CFD analysis was coordinated with an experimental investigation carried out at the University of Newcastle. I did Modelling of the transient free surface with entrainment of buoyant particles, air in the form of bubbles and breaking of those bubbles, turbulent parameters variation between the fluid and particles.

Environmental Engg. Sc.  
Master Of Science, CFD modelling of Collapse of a Cylinder of Bingham Fluid, Jul, 1998 to Jun, 1999
Executive Summary: The ``Slump Test" is a simple method of measuring the yield stress of certain materials such as concrete and concentrated suspensions. In this research a cylindrical test sample is allowed to deform under its own weight, and the yield stress is obtained from the change in height (slump height) of the sample using an empirical calibration curve. In this paper the slump height/yield stress relationship of the material, considered as a Bingham fluid, is investigated numerically using a finite volume procedure applied to a homogeneous two-fluid (liquid-air) model representing flow of an equivalent single phase with variable properties.


CO2 removal using convergent-divergent nozzle  by  Dr Nurul Hasan    
January, 2009 - January, 2016
The research is focused on modelling of shock wave in converging-diverging (CD) nozzle for phase separation of CO2 from natural gas mixture. It will be a stepping stone to further understand the behaviour of shock wave on different operating conditions. The research will focus on developing a prototype of converging-diverging nozzle through which the temperature of natural gas can be dropped to -200 deg C in 500 mm of length.

Enhanced Oil Recovery  by  Dr Nurul Hasan    
June, 2005 - January, 2016
The objectives of the project is to determine the feasibility of CO2 injection as the Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) in X-Oil Field and to determine the best parameters that will have the highest oil recovery rate within the limit of water cut and gas oil ratio based on the sensitivity analysis performed. The parameters are the location of the well, the injection rate, the types of injector wells, and the types of injector fluid.
