Elgammal, Tarek

Research Assistant
Water Technology Accelerator (WaTA)

Tarek ElGammal is a UWM Ph.D. dissertator in the mechanical engineering department. He is also a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Methodology Engineer in Harley-Davidson Product Development Center and a researcher in prof. Ryo Amano’s hydro and combustion labs. He got his bachelor and M.Sc. from mechanical power engineering department, Cairo University in 2010 and 2013. Currently, he is a member in the “Terrestrial Energy Systems” technical committee of American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME).

Research interests relate to the thermal management and flow analysis. Being a research assistant since 2016, Tarek is experienced with CFD, mesh morphing, and optimization techniques. Cases of multiphase, phase-change, rotational domain, aerodynamics, HVAC, and heat dispersion have been investigated for several projects. His dissertation studies, experimentally and numerically, two different topics: enhancing the mixing uniformity in a combustion chamber dilution zone and remedying cavitation in micro axial hydro-turbines.

Since joining UWM in 2014, he published three journal articles, worked in three projects for DOE and NSF I/UCRC), and presented six conference papers. His current work in WaTA is in the under the review of patenting.
