I received my PhD in aeronautical engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1990.
My doctoral thesis involved numerical simulations and optimal design of ultra-high temperature
magnetohydrodynamic generators for application to various advanced propulsion concepts.
I have been employed at NASA Glenn since October 1990. Most of my work at Glenn has involved
code development and application for modeling and design of aeropropulsion components,
including development of the ALLSPD and NCC (National Combustion Code) reacting flow codes,
and radiation heat transfer numerical methods designed for coupling with CFD
(computational fluid dynamics).
Recently I have become the lead for Tank Thermal and Pressure Control modeling and
experimental tasks, which supports Cryogenic Fluid Management(CFM)advanced technology
development for Exploration Systems.
I am also developiung new capabilities for NCC to support Cryogenic Fluid Management, including:
turbulent natural convection for arbitrary accelerations; cryogenic liquid thermodynamic
and transport properties; and general two-phase flow with liquid/vapor phase change.
My research Interests include:
- Computational Fluid Dynamics
- Radiation Heat Transfer
- Conjugate Heat Transfer
- Combustion modeling
- Cryogenic Storage Tank modeling
+ Combustion CFD
+ Cryogenic Tank Thermal and Pressure Control
