Bachelor of Science : Aerospace Engineering, 2009Cairo University － Cairo, Giza, Egypt
CFD Technical Analyst September 2011 to CurrentOptumatics － Cairo
Identified the most efficient and acceptable resolutions to complex engineering problems related to internal combustion engines (diesel and gasoline fueled, 2-stroke and 4-stroke, in-line and OPOC configurations).
Recommended design modifications to eliminate system malfunctions and enhance performance by increasing efficiency and/or reducing harmful emissions.
Designed and detailed mechanical parts using Siemens NX.
Involved in development, calibration and validation of peripheral numerical models (premixed flame model, diffusion flame model and soot model) to be incorporated into CFD analysis.
Freelance CFD analyst April 2011 to August 2011Cairo University － Cairo
Calculated wind loads on a solar parabolic trough in a CSP generator at different relevant orientations.
Exported the distributed aerodynamic forces to a FEA software to aid in the process of structural analysis and design.
Optimization of air flow components (intake/exhaust manifolds and ports) of a 2 - stroke 2.5l OPOC diesel engine to: maximize scavenging efficiency, enhance fuel mixing by introducing adequate in cylinder motions and maximize air flow for higher power densities with minor hardware manipulation.
Optimization of piston bowl and fuel targeting in a 2 - stroke 2.5l OPOC diesel engine to: minimize wall wetting and soot production without giving up on elevated power densities through the careful matching of fuel spray plumes with the predicted in cylinder motions to get to more homogeneous charge avoiding overly rich/lean problematic regions.
Investigation of elevated hydrocarbon emissions from a 2 - stroke 0.25l OPOC gasoline engine (scooter engine) to find out that the presence of a large crevice area in the periphery of the piston bowl lead to excessive flame quenching and hence unburned fractions of the charge found their way to the exhaust.
Investigation of transient fluctuations in a 3.5l engine running on propane during warm up to find out that the strong cooling effect due to propane vaporization lead to the formation of ice around the injector tip which had an strong impact on the fuel metering process and the effect was magnified during cold start operation.
Design of a tumble insert to be used on a 2.0l gasoline direct injection engine to enhance mixing and reduce wall wetting and soot formation. (Engine particulate number levels were reduced to become within the limits of Euro 5)
Design of a piston bowl for a direct injection 2.0l gasoline engine with a central injector to accommodate operation in both lean stratified and stoich. homogeneous conditions with minimum trade offs between power density and emissions (smoke, NOX and HC)
