Master Thesis Projects - Dr. Diab

Potential master thesis students who are interested in one of the following projects presented by Dr. Nadim Diab (nadim.diab@liu.edu.lb) for Fall semester 2014-2015 are kindly requested to meet him as soon as possible in the School of Engineering (Beirut Campus – Block G – First floor) before they do their registration in any of the offered MENG695 “Master Thesis – Part I” sections of Beirut campus.
The list of projects includes:
  1.  Molecular dynamics based approach for studying non-slip boundary conditions:

    Modeling non-slip boundary conditions for rarefied gas flow using the Direct Simulation Monte Carlo method. This project offers a simulation technique to predict velocity and thermal jumps near solid boundaries for rarefied gas flow.

    • Required Skills: Fluid Mechanics, Programming skills

    • Deliverables: Simulation code

       

  2. Studying the flow behavior between oscillating micro-plates:

    Modeling the gas flow between two oscillating micro-plates (i.e. couette flow) at high frequencies. This project includes building a code that simulates the molecular gas dynamics to better understand the behavior of fluids at micro-levels.

    • Required Skills: Fluid Mechanics, Programming Skills

    • Deliverables: Simulation code

       

  3. Optimum synthesis and analysis of rigid link mechanisms:

    The project includes good understanding of the dynamics of rigid linkage mechanisms and their behavior. It also involves intelligent optimization techniques.

    • Required Skills: Mechanisms – Optimization

    • Deliverables: Simulation code

       

  4. Intelligent optimization techniques for synthesis of compliant mechanisms:

    The project includes good understanding of compliant mechanisms and their behavior. It also involves intelligent optimization techniques.

    • Required Skills: Mechanics of Materials – Mechanisms – Optimization

    • Deliverables: Simulation code
