Building sustainable infrastructure: Advanced spray and jet cooling for new materials and technologies
Dr. Vladan Prodanovic is a Senior Instructor in the Departments of Chemical and Biological Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering at the University of British Columbia (UBC) Canada, and Director of the Master of Engineering Leadership program in Clean Energy Engineering. His professional interest and expertise is in the area of multiphase flow and heat transfer, sustainable energy systems, and energy efficiency.
Dr. Prodanovic has joined UBC in 1995 to pursue a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering. Previously, he received his B.A.Sc. and M.A.Sc. in Chemical Engineering (TMF) at the University of Belgrade. Following his doctoral and postdoctoral studies at UBC, he worked as a Research Associate in the Advanced Materials and Process Engineering Laboratory (AMPEL), and in 2007 he become a faculty member in the Faculty of Applied Science (APSC UBC). Dr. Prodanovic’s research projects are related to developing cooling techniques for new materials, and he collaborated with industrial partners such as ArcelorMittal, Posco, Siemens and Dillinger. A particular focus of his research is modeling of jet impingement boiling. He published his work in over 50 journal and conference publications, and numerous technical reports.
