Waqar A. Khan

National University of Sciences and Technology, Pakistan


Waqar A. Khan serves as a Professor of mechanical engineering at the National University of Sciences and Technology, Pakistan. Khan received his B.E. degree from NED University of Engineering and Technology, Karachi, Pakistan, in 1982, his M.E. degree from the Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, NJ, in 1996, and his Ph.D. degree from the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON, Canada, in 2004. Khan has developed several unique analytical models for the fluid flow and heat transfer across single cylinders (circular/elliptical), tube banks, and pin-fin heat sinks to Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids. His research interests include energy, thermal power plants, modeling and optimization of forced convection heat transfer from tube banks and microchannel heat sinks, thermal system optimization using entropy generation minimization and genetic algorithm, mixed convection, and nanofluids. Dr. Khan has more than 100 publications in refereed journals and international conferences.
