Dr Fadl studied Mechanical Engineering at Mansoura University, Egypt, graduating in 2003. He received a Master in Mechanical Engineering from Mansoura University, Egypt in 2007. He then moved to Coventry, UK to take the PhD in Alternative Water Heating Methods from 2011 to 2015 Funded by Coventry University and Triton Showers. By this time, he lectured on BSc programmes with a focus Building Services at Coventry university.

He was a Post-doctoral in Osney Thermofluids Research Laboratory in Oxford from 2014 to 2017, working on The Future Conventional Power Research Consortium, EPSRC and GE power (Alstom) funded project on developing a step-change multi-scale multi-fidelity capability for predicting and analysing steam turbine hot end component thermal response and behaviour, in transient operations with much shorter time scales than currently allowable. He was appointed Research Associate in Thermal Energy Storage in 2017.

  • PhD, (Built Environment) "Investigation of Alternative Water Heating Methods."
  • MSc (Mechanical Engineering) "Characteristics of Pulsating Flow in Pipes."
  • BSc (Mechanical Power Engineering) "HTGR For Combined Water Desalination Power Generation District Heating and Water Distribution."

My current and recent research in energy/thermofluids focus on the development of sustainable energy solutions for generation, storage and distribution of energy, such as developing a new alternative heating methods and manufacture an efficient heating system to decrease the consuming power and focused on creating solutions that transform the future for the benefit of people and their environments.  My research initiatives include both experimental and computational investigations of heat transfer, thermodynamics and fluid dynamics and topics addressing fundamental issues in the energy system technologies, electronics thermal management, manufacturing processes to fundamental research in thermal energy transport.

Specific areas of my current research in energy include:

  • Energy conversion and management.
  • Heat transfer and fluid mechanics.
  • Modelling and simulation of energy systems.
  • Renewable energy systems (solar, geothermal); and
  • Thermal energy storage.
