Event description


This course introduces the basic principles of fluid mechanics to second year engineering students and enables them to develop an appreciation of the design principles of fluid systems. Students learn how to examine systems with a fluid as the working medium, analyse existing and design new fluid systems, and apply engineering methods to solve complex problems. The emphasis is on the development of mathematical models for basic and complex fluid problems and apply the models in various practical applications.

Dr Saiied Aminossadati began his engineering career in 1984, and qualified with BEng in 1989, MEng in 1994 and PhD in 1999. He joined The University of Queensland as an engineering lecturer in 2006. He is the leader of mine ventilation and fibre-optic sensing research at The University of Queensland and has successfully received several internal and external competitive research grants. He has established the first Heat, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Laboratory and the first Fibre-optic Sensing Application Laboratory at The University of Queensland. He has published more than 110 peer-reviewed Journal and Conference papers and given more than 40 oral presentations.

Dr Aminossadati has supervised over 70 Honours and RHD students, and is currently supervising 13 PhD students. He has gained international recognition for his research in thermos-fluids, underground mine ventilation and fibre-optic sensing systems. He is using his close relation with mining industry to introduce new technologies in this industry and is collaborating with a number of national and international institutes in this field.

Amin has recently organised and chaired the 2nd International OFSIS2017 Conference in Brisbane with the focus on the industrial and safety applications of fibre-optic and photonic sensors.

Dr Aminossadati uses an active learning strategy in this course to motivate his students to learn and understand this critical aspect of mining. He gets great satisfaction from teaching and achieves consistently high teaching and course evaluation scores. His commitment to his students’ learning has been recognised with multiple program and teaching awards.

Visitors are welcome to attend any of Amin's lectures but if you wish to visit a tutorial (Thursday 4 - 6 or Friday 11 - 1) please contact him in advance.
