My expertise in turbulence modelling has been developed at Polytech'Orléans then at the University of Ottawa and applied as consultant for Total. I have also taught at the University of Strathclyde.
I have studied the multiphase flows at NTNU (Norway) and I have applied at EDF to model the droplets created in low-pressure steam turbines (condensation at non-equilibrium),
at Total to model the steam and solid particles injected in a Fluid Catalytic Cracking reactor with a fluidised bed, and during my PhD for two-phases flows in rocks.
Creation of SIMUNI
Since a long time, I was thinking to open a new business with new approaches.
Following a close collaboration with Miss Bagdagul Dauyeshova for her research, her supervisor has asked me to continue under a contractual form.
SIMUNI has been created the 1st March 2018 to meet their needs in the first phase.
I started by studying automotive, especially the internal combustion engines that I have a baccalaureate (equivalent to A-level) and a BTS (equivalent to High National diploma).
During those studies, I learnt the bases of programming in self-taught. Indeed, I created my first programs at the age of 16-17 years old to find, quickly, my notes with images and menus on my graphics calculator.
In my BTS internship at Renault, I proposed a mini-program based on the HTML language to diagnose the failures for the powertrains test-benches at the research and development centre at Lardy.
Wishing to design new products, I followed a post-secondary scientific preparation to enter at Polytech’Orléans (engineering school) in the ‘Grandes Ecoles’ system.
During these studies, I had several industrials experiences:
As consultant at SEGULA, I realised for Total an erosion-corrosion study in a Fluid Catalytic Cracking reactor with a fluidised bed (two fluids, two porous media, 15 million elements, 15 billion of particles represented by a PDF (probability density function) in each cell, several UDFs developed to analyse the erosion, corrosion, and efficiency of cyclones).
- Condensation at non-equilibrium for low-pressure steam turbines in the two last stages at EDF.
- Characterization of prototypes exchanger for cooling steering at institute Prisme.
- Laboratory thermal diagnostic at Filtrauto.
- Install-Repair-Diagnostic of heat pumps at LPE.
My thirst of knowledge conducted me to the research and I liked it at EDF and during my experience at the University of Ottawa on the spectral methods (turbulence).
Following these experiences, I wanted to have a PhD on multiphase flows.
Thus, I applied at the University of Strathclyde and I have developed a 2D code to deal with multiphase flows in complex geometries.
This code can quickly simulate with an automatic mesh generation. I have proposed a better treatment of the non-slip condition at the wall and a redefinition of the wetting condition: without using the real surface (only use the mesh) and taking into account of the flow to get a solution more realistic than previously proposed.
