Work by PhD student Azan Sapardi, Wisam Hussam, Greg Sheard and our UK collaborator Alban Potherat, on the flow around a 180-degree bend has been featured on the cover of the leading Journal of Fluid Mechanics.
We congratulate Dr Ahmad Hamid on the conferral today of his PhD. Ahmad's thesis investigated electrical and physical mechanisms for heat transfer enhancement in magnetohydrodynamic duct flows.
Congratulations Tony and Sally on their Wedding! The Sheard Lab, 1 Oct 2016
We congratulate our team member Tony Vo on his marriage today to Sally. Best wishes for your future together, and thanks for having us share the occasion with you!
