NUST-PEFMA Join Hands for Joint Research
Dr Adnan Maqsood (Assistant Professor, RCMS & Coordinator RIC), accompanied a delegation from NUST on a visit to Gujrat on October 18, 2012. During the visit hosted by Pakistan Electric Fan Manufacturing Association (PEFMA) , the team visited Fan Development Institute (FDI) and the associated fan industries. The scope of visit was to understand the problems / challenges faced by fan industries of Pakistan and identify the key areas of improvement in which NUST can share its expertise with the PEFMA. Based on the visit, a fan research team has been formed at RCMS to contribute its expertise to a project of national interest.
The team members are listed below:
- Dr. Khalid Parvez (Professor , RCMS) - Project Head
- Dr. Adnan Maqsood (Assistant Professor, RCMS) - Member
- Mr. Ammar Mushtaq (Lecturer, RCMS) - Member
- Mr. Junaid Ahmad Khan (PhD Student, RCMS) - Member
- Mr. Aqib Chishty (PhD Student , RCMS) - Member
The main contribution of RCMS to PEFMA will be in the following areas:
Understand the flow field of fan blade through rigorous modeling and simulation techniques.
Characterisation of fundamental design parameters in fan blade design.
Carry out parametric study of design parameters.
Optimisation of fan-blade to improve air flow/circulation in room and suppression of undesirable acoustic noise (if any).
The study will cater for international fan-design standards so that the share of export proportion of Pakistani fans in international market can be improved.
