Mansour al Qubeissi
Dr. Mansour al Qubeissi is experienced in fluid mechanics, CFD development and mathematical modelling of thermal-fluid systems. His research efforts have resulted in dissemination of several publications in internationally refereed journals (e.g. Fuel, Int J heat and mass transfer), conferences (e.g. ILASS) and two textbooks. He is also involved in supervising industrial group projects - currently sponsored by JLR, final year individual projects, PhDs, and MSc projects.
Dr. al Qubeissi is recognised for his other achievements, such as:
- 2010 (£2k) Award winner, by UNLTD, as a social entrepreneur for developing a local project “NETWORKING”, in which ethnic minorities were successfully encouraged to melt into society and enrol into higher education.
- In 2009, Dr al Qubeissi received a UK-CARA Research Award with value of £7k for the MPhil degree achievement at the University of Sussex.
- A STEM Ambassador, in which he delivers engineering knowledge to young generations (years 7-16) with aims of raising awareness of these generations in mathematics and engineering and associated real life applications.

- Investigation of heating and evaporation of multi-component droplets:
This project was built the EPSRC projects ‘A Fundamental Study of the Novel Poppet Valve 2-Stroke Auto-ignition Combustion Engine (2-ACE)’ (EP/F058276/1) and ‘Development of a new quantitative kinetic model for the analysis of heating and evaporation processes in complex hydrocarbon fuel droplets’ (EP/H001603/1). It was focused on the development of the new models for realistic multi-component droplet heating and evaporation which are relevant for automotive applications, implementation of these models into the CFD code FLUENT, and testing the models against experimental data.
- Energy Efficiency and Environment: a Cross-Channel Cluster (E3C3):
The INTERREG E3C3 project aims to create a centre for research and training focused on the development of knowledge, optimization strategies and tools for improving energy production systems (burners, engines, gas turbines), for a clean combustion based on consumption of liquid fuels from biomass.
