Biography

Dr. Muaaz Bhamjee is currently a senior lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering Science at the UJ. He lectures the first year Introduction to Engineering Design modules. He is involved in research and has published in the fields of Computational fluid dynamics (CFD), Heat and Mass Transfer, Experimental Fluid Dynamics, Lattice Boltzmann Modelling, Multiphase Flow, Positron Emission Particle Tracking (PEPT), High Performance Computing (HPC), Solar and Renewable Energy, Solar Air Heating, Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) Modelling, Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI), Fluid Dynamics in Biomedical Applications and Engineering Education. The primary focus of his research is in the use of Navier-Stokes and Lattice-Boltzmann based computational fluid dynamics (CFD) approaches in modelling of the multi-scale fluid dynamics, heat and mass transfer processes.

Dr. Bhamjee is a registered Candidate Engineer with the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA), a full member of the South African Institute of Mechanical Engineering (SAIMechE), a member of the South African Association for Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (SAAM), a member of the South African Society for Engineering Education (SASEE) and a member of the International Solar Energy Society (ISES). He is also a member of SA-CERN and the African Light Source (AfLS) projects.
