Saber Mohammadi

Post doctoral researcher

Saber Mohammadi is working on Flow-induced vibrations and failure of axial fan blades in electric generators. A large portion of the hydraulic power plants in Sweden have axially cooled generators, with axial fan blades that have a risk of failure due to flow-induced vibrations. During refurbishment, there is a chance to decrease the risk of failure with a better knowledge of the flow-induced forces and their interaction with fan blades. This research contains Numerical Fluid-Solid Interaction simulations and experimental tests.
