[4] About the expert:
Prof. Weeratunge Malalasekera is a Professor of 
Computational Fluid Dynamics & Heat Transfer at the 
Loughborough University, UK. He maintains a good 
collaborative links with a number of internationally leading 
research groups. His research interests include modelling 
and simulations of IC engines; Investigations into the 
performance of CCGT power plants; Development and 
investigations into energy storage solutions; Investigation 
into hydrogen applications, combustion, deflagration and 
flame propagation in hydrogen mixtures and Large eddy 
simulations of premixed and non-premixed flames.

Prof. Malalasekera contributes to all levels in 
undergraduate teaching and runs and contributes to the M.Sc 
Programme in Mechanical Engineering. Computational Fluid 
Dynamics and Heat Transfer are the main subjects taught. He 
is the co-author of the textbook entitled ‘An introduction 
to Computational Fluid Dynamics: The Finite Volume Method’. 
First published by Longman Higher Education in 1995, this 
book as become a widely used popular CFD course text at many 
universities worldwide. An enhanced second edition of this 
book covering advanced topics and recent development in CFD 
has been published in February 2007, by Pearson Higher 
Education. By popular demand, a number of international 
editions (Chinese, Asian, Japanese, Greek and Korean) have 
also been published.
