PhD projects

Dr. Oon heads the Thermofluids team of the Thermofluidics group. His work mainly focuses on the enhancement of heat transfer media to improve the turbulent convective heat transfer performance. His secondary research interests are to use mathematical and computational modelling to investigate the heat transfer enhancement and application in heat exchanger. He also worked on fouling/anti-fouling research of heat exchanger using carbon-based materials.


Projects:

1. Synthesis of colloidal aqueous suspensions for heat transfer enhancement and application in a unique annular configuration flow passage

2. Numerical simulation of heat transfer to separation colloidal suspensions flow in different geometry conduit
