Guan Heng Yeoh0000-0003-3483-3759
Guan Heng Yeoh obtained his Ph.D. degree and 1st Class Honors degree in mechanical engineering from the UNSW, NSW, Australia. Currently he is an External Academic Adviser at the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering, City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, an Associate Professor at the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, UNSW, and a Senior Research Scientist at ANSTO. He is the founder and Editor of the Journal of Computational Multiphase Flows and the Group Leader of Computational Thermal-Hydraulics of OPAL Research Reactor, ANSTO. He has approximately 180 publications including 7 books, 10 book chapters, 83 journal articles, and 80 conference papers with an H-index 16 and over 800 citations. His research interests are computational fluid dynamics (CFD); numerical heat and mass transfer; turbulence modelling using Reynolds averaging and large eddy simulation; combustion, radiation heat transfer, soot formation and oxidation, and solid pyrolysis in fire engineering; fundamental studies in multiphase flows: free surface, gas-particle, liquid-solid (blood flow and nanoparticles), and gas-liquid (bubbly, slug/cap, churn-turbulent, and subcooled nucleate boiling flows); computational modelling of industrial systems of single-phase and multiphase flows. He has obtained significant prizes and awards: in 2009 Brennan Medal for the best book publication, Institute of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), UK; in 2009 ANSTO Award: recognition for excellence in literature publication; in 1992 NASA Award: novel and innovative research work in solidification for the manufacturing of electronic components in microgravity environment.
