Experience

On this page you find information on my educational and proffessional experiences, and also some about my personal fields of interest and passions.

Education

Ph.D. degree within computational fluid mechanics and heat transfer at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). Master of Science in mechanical engineering (KTH).

 

During my, more than, 10 years at the university I got the opportunity to learn quite a lot within the theoretical field of physics and mechanics. Apart from this, higher grade educations, particularly the doctoral studies, contributed with an ability to manage complex problems and, in a systematic way, break it down in relevant and concrete parts.

 

The doctoral thesis is on impinging jets with heat transfer. The code used was an in-house Fortran based implicit LES code. The posting took place in Matlab. The main focus was on studying the in initiation and growth of coherent structures, the development of turbulence and the impact on wall heat transfer. This was carried out for a number of different type on inlet conditions, ranging from top-hat steady profiles to fully developed pipe flow. Also different rate of swirling flows was studied, and also annular swirling and non-swirling flows.

 

 

Employment

During my active years of labor I’ve been employed at Scania, which is a multinational world leading truck manufacturer. At a company of this size you get the opportunity and possibility to work with the state of the art technology and also work closely together with CAE software developing companies.

 

During my years within CFD I’ve participated in several developing projects with the CFD code provider, just because the functionality that we requested didn’t exist. Apart from the software development part, I’ve worked a lot with the establishment of automated CFD processes.

 

Another benefit with this kind of employer is the availability of different software. During the years I’ve worked with Catia V4/V5, Fluent, Icem, KULI, ANSA, matlab, Pylab, Radtherm, Openfoam, Harpoon, Fieldview, Gambit, STAR CCM+, and Powerflow. Additionally much time has been devoted to developing different types of routines and functions.

 

Apart from the availability of licenses, courses, conferences etc, maybe the most impressive part is the computational resources. Due to the use of the inherent transient code Powerflow we had to build and maintain a state of the art computational cluster. The number of cores in this cluster are many thousands and it never seems to stop growing. It’s truly a interesting and dynamic area to work within.
