Dr. Kuldeep Prasad
Scientist/Manager at NIST
Dr. Kuldeep R. Prasad is a mechanical engineer in the Engineered Fire Safety Group of the Fire Research Division (FRD) of the Engineering Laboratory (EL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Dr. Prasad develops mathematical and numerical models for simulating complex multi-dimensional, multi-phase chemically reacting fluid flows. His research interests include numerical simulation of chemically reacting fluid flows with detailed finite rate kinetics, mathematical and numerical modeling of various physical and chemical processes and large scale computing using DNS or LES models. He has also developed expertise in using finite element methods for heat transfer and coupling of fire models with structural analysis software.
