Formed
the Computational Mechanics Laboratory in 1999. Acquired laboratory space and
computer hardware and software’s worth $2,000,000. Currently the lab has more
than 10 SUN & 1 SGI workstations for visualization and computing. They were all
served by SUN 4 processor system with 1 Terabytes of disk space and 4 Gbytes of
Ram space. The high performance computing is performed in two types of parallel
computing systems. The shared memory computing system (SUN4500) has 8 processor
with 4 Gbytes of ram space and 108 Gbytes of disk space. The distributed
parallel computing system has 12 node with each node has 2 processors (total 24
processors). Each node has 4 Gbytes of ram space and 72 Gbytes of disk space
(total 48 Gbytes of ram space and 864 Gbytes of disk space). The distributed
parallel system was donated in package worth of $800,000 by SUN Micro Systems in
2001. Hence a state of the art high performance computing facility was
established for research.

Research
through the Power Electronics Leveling Solutions, LLC (PELS) company**

A sum of

**
Other
Significant Research Activities**

1.
Invited to become the
**member of the ** in 2003 for my contribution to
computational wind engineering

2.
Became the
**Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers** in 2004 for my
contribution to finding forces on building due to tornados

3.
My research
accomplishments in the areas of computer modeling of forces on buildings and
bridges, thermal management of electronic devices, multiphase flow modeling of
spray cooling, modeling the growth of grain boundary in nanocrystals and
improving the strength of concrete using nano science were instrumental in
getting selected as the **first James T.
Womble Professor** of Computational Mechanics and Nanotechnology Modeling in
2005.

4.
A total of
**$5.5 Million research funding** was brought through the University and
**$670,000** through Power Electronics
Leveling Solutions LLC as Chief Technology Officer and Partner to support
graduate program.

5.
Received
**Best paper award from two International Conferences** (STAIF-2005 &
IMAPS-2001),

6.
The
**Computational Mechanics Laboratory**
was started in 1998 with initial funding from DOD. As the Director of the CM
Lab, I maintained and extended the lab facility to have state of the art
computing. Currently it has high performance computers worth more than $1.5
Million.

7.
Interacted as Co-PI
with Dr. Amy Apon to get equipment support from NSF to have
**high performance computer facility **
for the

8.
The work on computer modeling of tornado forces on building appeared in the news
media to the extent that it is **the most
widely disseminated science news release from the college of engineering** and
with one possible exception, from the entire
**University **in the year 2000.

9.
Published more than
**160 papers** in journals (43), books (64) and conference proceeding
(62)

10.
The Computational
Mechanics Laboratory is the **leader in
initiating the modeling work on spray cooling.** The spray cooling is
considered to be most preferable cooling concept for high power electronic
devices. We explained the underlying mechanism of transient heat conduction in
removing high heat flux through multiphase flow modeling in 2004. This led to
research support of more than $1.5 million from AFRL, ONR and NASA. Even at this
time we are the only who has done modeling of spray cooling using computational
fluid dynamics principles.

11.
Research performed on
spray cooling for the last four years led me to become the
**partner and Chief Technology Officer of
the Power Electronics Leveling Solutions LLC** and instrumental in bringing
**$670,000 as SBIR** Phase I and II
funding to the state of

12.
My research findings with regard to the forces created on buildings due to
tornado may lead to the safer design of buildings in the future.
**The work performed at the **.

13.
The computer model developed to compute the
**critical velocity for flutter** is used
by Aerodynamics Laboratory, DOT to design safer bridges. The model can calculate
the flutter velocity in a month where as the wind tunnel may take about three
months and $100,000.

14.
Became a member of the **editorial board of
International Journal of Wind & Structures** from May 2006 and reviewed papers
for more than 12 journals.

15.
I have been taking a leading role in the department in developing external
funding from federal agencies like Department of Defense (DOD), NASA, Department
of Transportation (DOT), Department of Energy (DOE), NOAA, National Science
Foundation (NSF) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the last six
years.

16.
The computational modeling has been applied for wind engineering, tornado forces
on buildings, bridge aerodynamics, pollutant transport, pavement analysis,
thermal stress analysis of electronic packaging, thermal management, spray
cooling and nanomechanics
