Abstract:
Goodarz Ahmadi, the Robert R. Hill Distinguished Professor of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering and interim dean of Clarkson's Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering, delivered a series of invited lectures at von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics (VKI) in Brussels, Belgium. He was one of several international academic and industry scientists speaking at the Production, Transport and Application of Nanoparticles Conference hosted by the Institute

Clarkson Dean Lectures at Brussels Nanoparticles Conference

Brussels, Belgium | Posted on March 5th, 2007

The attendees at this workshop/lecture series work in the miniature world of nanoparticles - fragments that are only a few nanometers (100 billionth of a meter) in size but pack the potential to dramatically change our lives. In fact, so promising is this new field, many scientists believe it will have a future world-wide impact as profound as today's Internet revolution. Nanotechnology, especially nanoparticle related applications, are already accounting for astonishing changes in high tech medicine, aerospace, the environment and a myriad of manufacturing applications.

Science, however, is only just beginning to understand the full potential, challenges and responsibilities of this emerging technology. The workshop/lecture series, which ran from February 26 thru March 1, was organized to focus on the production, transport and application of hypersonic impactors and aerodynamic lenses.

Internationally known for his numerous engineering and scientific research contributions, Ahmadi delivered lectures to the audience dealing with nanoparticle transport, deposition and removal; environmental and biological modeling applications; and applications to supersonic and hypersonic impactors and aerodynamic lenses.

Ahmadi has authored two books and over 400 technical publications in archival journals. He has also made more than 500 presentations at national and international technical meetings and given more than 100 invited talks and short courses at other institutions. Ahmadi is a member of the five million dollar club at Clarkson University. His research interests include nano- and micro-particle transport, environmental flows, pollutant transport, indoor air, multi-phase and granular flows, particles adhesion, removal and resuspension, aerosols, turbulence modeling, stability of fluid motions, continuum mechanics, and nonlinear random vibrations. Ahmadi holds a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from Tehran University in Iran, a master's degree in civil engineering from Purdue University and a doctoral degree in mechanical engineering from Purdue University. Prior to his tenure at Clarkson, he was dean of Engineering at Shiraz University in Iran. Earlier he served Clarkson University as Chair of Mechanical engineering, associate dean for Research and Graduate Studies at the Coulter School of Engineering and vice provost for Research.

The von Karman Institute, created in 1956, is a non-profit international educational and scientific organization which receives its support from 15 NATO countries and from contract research. The institute hosts departments in aeronautical and aerospace, environmental and applied fluid dynamics, and turbomachinery and propulsion. VKI offers post-graduate education in fluid dynamics and encourages "training in research through research."
