Dr. Waqar Khan is working as a Professor in the department of Mechanical Engineering at PMU, KSA. Dr. Khan received his B.E. degree from NED University of Engineering and Technology, Karachi, Pakistan, in 1982, M.E. degree from the Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, NJ, in 1997, and Ph.D. degree from the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON, Canada, in 2004.
Dr. Khan has several years of experience in teaching, research and curriculum development at graduate and undergraduate levels. He has developed several unique analytical models for the fluid flow and heat transfer across single cylinders (circular/elliptical), tube banks and pin-fin heat sinks to Newtonian and Non-Newtonian fluids. His research interests include energy, thermal power plants, modeling, and optimization of forced convection heat transfer from tube banks and micro-channel heat sinks, thermal system optimization using entropy generation minimization and genetic algorithm, mixed convection, nanofluids. Dr. Khan has more than 200 publications in refereed journals and international conference proceedings in addition to three Chapters and the author of one book on Engineering Thermodynamics.
