Dr Mohammad Rahmati

Associate Professor

Department: Mechanical and Construction Engineering

Ee Mohammad Rahmati Staff Profile 255Dr Rahmati has worked on several computational and experimental projects which include inverse methods for turbomachinery blade design at UCL and modelling of wave energy converters at Lancaster University. Between 2009 and 2013 he was a member of academic staff at the University of Oxford conducting research on aeromechanical and unsteady flow analysis of multi-stage gas turbines. In particular, his research at the University of Oxford which funded by Siemens focused on developing unsteady flow computational tools in which multi-physics interactions such as aerothermal fluid-structure interactions are included.
