Niche Area : Biomechanics, CFD, Biofluids

Self Description :

    Prof. Dr. Kahar Osman is a Professor at the Faculty of Engineering, UTM, Malaysia. He is active in the Computational Fluid Mechanics Group and IJN-UTM Cardiovascular Engineering Center. His research interests include application of computational fluid mechanics (CFD), fluid-structure interaction (FSI) and experimental techniques in the study of mechanical and cardiovascular systems, as well as analysis, design, and optimizations of cardiovascular devices. He has been practicing CFD for more than 25 years. He started his work in flow modelling in the area of mechanical engineering and moved to biomedical engineering field since 10 years ago. He and his team has produced their own code for CFD modelling for bio-fluid. He is also currently working on stent development for different application. He is currently the Chair for School of Biomedical Engineering and Health Sciences at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia.
