Dr. Adnan Maqsood, Assistant Professor at RCMS has been awarded research grant of PKR 0.5 million by Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan for his project titled “Design & Optimization of the Energy-Efficient Ceiling Fan Blade”. The main focus of the project is to use computational techniques in improving the energy efficiency of the ceiling fans by improving the blade design. In this process, characterization of fundamental design parameters in fan blade geometry will be carried out. Subsequently, a parametric study of various design parameters will be carried out through rigorous modeling & simulation techniques.
Dr. Adnan Maqsood holds a bachelor degree in Aerospace Engineering from CAE and PhD from Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. The current research interests of Dr. Adnan Maqsood include Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) systems, Flight dynamics and control, Applied aerodynamics, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Nonlinear Dynamics. Dr. Adnan has several top quality international conferences and journal papers to his credit. He is serving as a reviewer for a number of conferences and journals of international repute.
