All University of South Carolina system institutions will be closed through the end of the spring semester. Columbia campus virtual instruction will continue through the end of the Summer II semester (Aug 1). Details can be found on the coronavirus landing page.
Position: PhD Student at the Mechanical Engineering Department
received a BSc Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Saint Martin’s university in
2003 and one MSc in Mechanical Engineering from University of Dayton in 2011and another
MSc in Mechanical Engineering from University of Kuwait in 2008. His current research
interest is to identify and create a dropwise condensation DWC Modeling of Steam on
horizontal tube. DWC mode has better heat transfer characteristics than filmwise condensation
(FWC) where less thermal resistance and higher heat flux exist. Modeling DWC is to
determine heat transfer of single drop and drops population density with respect to
contact angle and inclination angle. The model is to be validated with experimental
results in order to explore optimum heat transfer for given condensation conditions.

Position: PhD Candidate Mechanical Engineering
Mr. Anumbe holds a Bachelor’s degree (B.Engr.) in Mechanical Engineering
[Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Nigeria]; a Master’s in Engineering (M.Sc.) in Oil & Gas
Engineering [The Robert Gordon University, UK] and a Diploma in International Environmental
Law [United Nations Institute of Training & Research, Geneva, Switzerland]. He is
currently a doctoral candidate at the Mechanical Engineering Department and also works
in the Intellectual Property field as a Patent Clerk (Examiner) at the Technology
Commercialization office, University of South Carolina. His research interests are
in the general areas of Multiphase phase flow, Flow Assurance, Computational Fluid
Dynamics (CFD), Facilities design, and Big Data Analysis. His current research focus
is on the hydrodynamic behavior of multiphase flow in pipes and fittings using numerical
methods, experimental techniques and mechanistic modeling. As part of his research
work, he pioneered the development of the first industrial scale two-phase flow facility
in the department for the investigation of large diameter (4in ID) two-phase flow.
Some aspects of his research work involve collaboration with the Institute of Fluid
Dynamics, Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR), Dresden, Germany. His work
is supported in part with funding from a grant award from USC’s SPARC Research Grant
Position: PhD. Student
