GRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANT

1981 to 1984

Syracuse University, Department of Chemical Engineering, Syracuse, New York
   Research Assistant (September 1981 to November 1984)
  • Analyzed different scale-up criteria for industrial mixing using the simulation models. Showed that constant power scale-up maintains turbulence levels in the vessel. Dispersed phase mixing decreases 15 to 30 percent for this scale-up condition.
  • Presented research results to local industry. The preliminary results helped secure industrial matching funds for a $370,000 proposal to the National Science Foundation.
  • Integrated hydrodynamic turbulence models with existing drop interaction models in the Monte Carlo simulations. Used the simulation to confirm homogeneous mixing patterns observed in the laboratory mixing vessel.
  • Taught a recitation section of twenty freshman engineering students. Covered numerical methods and engineering calculation using BASIC and FORTRAN.
