Prof. Hussam Jouhara
Prof. Hussam Jouhara is a professor of thermal engineering in Brunel University London. Since obtaining his PhD from Manchester University in 2004. He has unique expertise in working on applied heat exchangers and energy-related research activities with direct support from research councils and various UK and international industrial partners. He has extensive expertise in designing and manufacturing various types of heat exchangers, including heat pipes and heat pipe-based heat exchangers for low, medium and high temperature applications.
His work in the field of heat pipe based heat exchangers resulted in novel designs for recouperators, steam generators & condensers and flat heat pipes. These have been implemented across various industries including, but not limited to: food, electronics thermal management and low to high industrial waste heat recovery and Energy from Waste. Over the last few years, he has successfully managed to achieve new designs for industrial waste heat recovery and many thermal systems that have enhanced the performance of various industrials processes in the UK, Europe and world-wide. His latest invention relates to a new Waste to Energy system that converts municipal waste to fuel that can be used to heat our homes.
Throughout his academic and industrial career, he received over £8.3M in research funding from various UK/EU based research councils (RCUK & EU H2020) and from British and European industrial partners. He is a published author of many journal papers, academic books and many filed patents in areas related to heat pipes engineering and manufacturing and Energy from Waste systems. He is a Chartered Engineer and Fellow of both Engineers Ireland (Ireland) and IMechE (UK).
