Dr. Mohamed Mahmoud Awad
Dr. Mohamed Mahmoud Awad (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the Head of Department (HoD) in area of Mechanical Engineering. He is also the Senior Faculty in Mechanical Engineering at Engineering Department of OE Division. He is also an associate professor at mechanical power engineering department, faculty of engineering, Mansoura university, Mansoura, Egypt. He was a postdoctoral fellow in mechanical engineering in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada. He received his Ph.D. from Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2007 and his undergraduate degree and his master’s degree from Mansoura University, Egypt, in 1996 and 2000, respectively. His research focus is on the development of robust models for characterizing transport phenomena using fundamental theory. These models are validated using experimental and/or numerical results. He is the author of 4 book chapters. He has published more than 100 papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings in these areas. Presently, his research is focused on renewable energy, the modeling of complex fluid dynamics, heat transfer problems in internal flows. These include transport in porous media, compact heat exchangers, two-phase flow in oil and gas operations, microchannel flows, non-Newtonian flows, and thermal design/optimization of energy systems. He is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). He was also a recipient of the ASME International Petroleum Technology Institute (IPTI) Award in 2005 and 2006. He won silver medal at 45th International Exhibition of Inventions, Geneva, Swiss, 29 March – 2 April 2017. His patent was “Solar Powered Portable Apparatus for Extracting Water from Air Using Desiccant Solution”.
He was Representative of Mansoura University in Research and Policy Committee Members for the mega research project among MIT and 3 Egyptian Universities: Ain Shams University, Mansoura University, and Aswan University (August 2019-October 2020).
Dr. Mahmoud Awad is Corresponding Member of the International Information Center for Multiphase Flow (ICeM) in Egypt (ICeM Newsletter No. 53 (March, 2020)-Present). In addition, he was Listed in row 116302 in Table-S7-singleyr-2019.xlsx in the list of world ranking of scientists 2020 by Stanford University (top 2% in each field).
