Prof Mehrdad Zangeneh profile picture
  • Professor of Thermofluids
  • Dept of Mechanical Engineering
  • Faculty of Engineering Science

Prof. Mehrdad Zangeneh  obtained his B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from London University and his PhD from Cambridge University. He worked as a research fellow in Churchill College Cambridge before joining UCL as a lecturer. Prof. Zangeneh is involved in the development of computational design methods to improve the performance (and reduce development times) of turbomachinery such as turbines, compressors, pumps, marine ducted or unducted propulsors and marine waterjets. He has developed methods based on 3D inverse design and multi-objective automatic optimization. He has been involved in many collaborative research programs with major Turbomachinery manufacturers (such as Ebara Corporation, Nissan Motors and Hitachi of Japan, ABB Turbo and Sulzer Turbo of Switzerland,  British Maritime Technology Ltd, UK DERA, Cummins Turbo and Napier Turbochargers and the US Navy and US Office of Naval Research).  These collaborative studies have resulted in important breakthroughs in turbomachinery resulting in eight international patents. His spin out company Advanced Design Technology Ltd (http://www.adtechnology.co.uk) is now considered one of the leading companies globally for turbomachinery design software. In 2000 he was awarded the Japan’s Turbomachinery Society’s Gold Medal and in 2003 he was awarded the Donald Julius Grone Prize by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. The impact of his work has been covered by articles in the New Scientist, Business Week Magazines and Nikei ( Japanese daily). Prof. Zangeneh is Chartered Engineer and Fellow of IMechE and a member of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). In addition he is a member of  ASME/International Gas Turbine Institute’s Turbomachinery committee, acting as the Vanguard Chair in 2001, 2004 and 2005 and International Towing Tank Conference’s Waterjet Committee. He has published more than 80 papers in Journals and refereed conference proceedings.
