Background

Professor Gavaises graduated from the department of mechanical engineering of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in 1992 and received his PhD from the Department of mechanical engineering of Imperial College London in 1997. For his PhD Thesis he was awarded with the 1998 Richard Way Prize for 'Most outstanding doctoral thesis in the area of IC engines in the UK from the Universities Internal Combustion Engines Group (UnICEG) and the Arch T. Collwell Merit Award from the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). After a few years of post-doctoral research at Imperial College London, he was appointed lecturer at the School of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences of City University London in 2001, promoted to Reader in 2006 and Professor in 2009. Following his promotion to Professor, he was appointed between 2009-2014 as Director of the Energy and Transport Research Centre at City University London. Between 2009-2013 he was holding the Delphi Diesel Systems Chair in FIE Fluid Dynamics. In 2011, with co-workers from City University, Loughborough University and TU Delft he co-established and directs the 1st International Institute of Cavitation Research (www.cavitation-institute.org), supported by The Lloyd’s Register Foundation. In 2014 he established and leads the Multi-scale flow processes research group at City University London. He is a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in the UK (IMechE), fellow of the Institution of Applied Mathematics (IMA) and member of the Society of Automotive Engineers SAE in the US; he is the associate editor for Europe for the International Journal pf Engine Research.

Research

Research area

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and in particular multi-phase flows with phase-change, such as cavitation and vaporisation of liquid fuel droplets and sprays. Prof Gavaises is working on the development and implementation of complex multi-phase and cavitation models and explores with academic and industrial partners their applications in many areas where cavitation occurs, such as engine fuel injectors and hydraulic equipment. Emphasis has been given to cavitation in automotive fuel injection systems, fuel droplet formation and vaporisation. He is also involved with research in porous materials and more recently in thrombus formation in the blood circulation.

He has supervised to completion 10 PhD students and has supported 25 man-years of post-doctoral researchers. He is currently supervising 25 PhD students as first supervisor (15 internal and 10 based in industry). His research team currently includes 3 Marie Curie Fellows, one research professor, 2 post-doctoral fellows and two lecturers.
