Sourabh V. Apte
S. V. Apte serves as an Assistant Professor of mechanical engineering at the Oregon State University. He grew up in the city of Pune (India) and received his B.S. degree (1994) in mechanical engineering from the University of Pune (CoEP), an M.S. degree (1996) from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore (IISC), India, and the Ph.D. degree in mechanical and nuclear engineering from Pennsylvania State University (PennState), Penn, USA (2000). Following his Ph.D., Dr. Apte joined the Center for Turbulence Research (CTR) and the Center for Integrated Turbulence Simulations (CITS) at Stanford University as an Engineering Research Associate. He joined Oregon State University in October 2005. He currently has a part-time appointment with DoE's National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) in Albany (OR) under the ORISE program. In 2010, he was awarded Air Force Summer Faculty Fellowship administered by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). His research interests are in the areas of computational modeling and analysis of two-phase turbulent flows. The specific topics of interest are internal flow and combustion dynamics in propulsion systems, droplets, sprays, and bubble dynamics, cavitating flows, flow structure-boundary interaction problems, particle-based interface tracking schemes, oxy-coal reactors, internal gravity waves, sediment transport in river and coastal regions, and alternative energy sources such as solar and wind energy and biofuel reforming. Dr. Apte is currently a Member of the American Physical Society (APS-DFD), the Combustion Institute (CI), and the Institute for Liquid Atomization and Spray Systems (ILASS).
