Personal profile


Shahram Karami is a Research Fellow at Laboratory for Turbulence Research in Aerospace & Combustion (LTRAC) in the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering at Monash University. The main focus of his research is the application of advanced high-fidelity simulation techniques, namely large-eddy simulation (LES) and direct numerical simulation (DNS) of laminar and turbulent reacting and non-reacting flows to understand underpinning physics of these flows. He joined LTRAC group at Monash University on Jun 2016; his research topic at Monash University is aeroacoustics and hydrodynamic instabilities in under-expanded supersonic impinging jets under supervision of Professor Julio Soria.

He finished his PhD on direct numerical simulation of lifted flames at Combustion Research Group in School of Mechanical Engineering under supervision of Professor Evatt Hawkes and Dr Mohsen Talei (Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Melbourne). He performed the first DNS of a lifted flame in an atmospheric temperature air environment where the flame speed has an equivalence ratio dependence representative of a hydrocarbon fuel. His PhD results in three, high quality journal papers, a comprehensive study of the stabilisation mechanism in the Journal of Fluid mechanics, an in-depth analysis of the edge-flame structure in a turbulent lifted flame in Combustion and Flame and a underpinning physics of extinction and reignition in Proceeding of Combustion Institute.
