The Nano Aerosol Computational Engineering (NanoACE) Research Group is led by Dr. Nick Eaves, who is an Assistant Professor at the University of Windsor in the Department of Mechanical, Automotive and Materials Engineering. The group aims to develop and apply computational models for nanomaterials and nanoparticles in chemically reacting flows. NanoACE is devoted to investigating several areas such as computational fluid dynamics and heat transfer, aerosol and particle dynamics modeling, and chemical kinetics modeling.

Doctoral student researching soot to find cleaner-burning fuel
August 26, 2020
Finding ways to make fossil fuels burn cleaner is the focus of a new research project by a doctoral candidate in UWindsor’s Faculty of Engineering.
Arash Khabazipur is looking at ways to interfere with soot formation by diluting fuel with gases such as nitrogen and hydrogen. Using an algorithm that replaces lab experiments with numerical code, he runs computer simulations to find permutations that result in reduced soot emissions.
“This research project directly addresses the environmental issues arising from hydrocarbon fossil fuel combustion,” Khabazipur said. “Canada and the U.S. are among the top fossil fuel consuming countries in the world, so this area of research is in intense demand.”
