Dr. Niaz Bahadur Khan is working as Assistant Professor, School
of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (SMME), National University of
Sciences & Technology (NUST), Islamabad, Pakistan. His academic
qualifications include PhD from University of
Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. and Masters of Science in Mechanical
Engineering (Specialization in Computational Design), from Ghulam Ishaq
Institute of Engineering Sciences & Technology, Swabi, Pakistan. Dr Niaz was previously working as Manager
(Technical) at National Engineering and Scientific Commission, Islamabad,
Pakistan (2009-2014). In addition, he
worked at AEDesign (PVT Limited), Lahore and National Institute of Design &
Dr. Niaz research work
include numerical investigation of the unsteady nature of the flow around fixed
and oscillating cylinder using computational fluid dynamics. His work mainly
focused on reduction of computational cost using different models and meshing
techniques. He did the Large eddy simulation (LES) and RANS model of the Navier
Stokes (NS) equation to numerically investigate the behavior around fixed
cylinder and vortex-induced vibration phenomenon. Dr Niaz published
computational works in high-caliber international journals with increasing
citations. He has been developing a strong link with industrial companies
through a wide range of knowledge exchange activities including research
projects, consultancy, visits, teaching and group/individual works of MSc/PhD
