Maha says "Goodbye" to three visiting researchers

As another academic year begins, The Maha team wishes the best of luck to three members that have enjoyed a stay for many months. The work produced by these researchers is an invaluable addition to our team, and the multi-cultural nature of our visitors truly makes the Maha Research Center a unique place to work.


Takayoshi Ichiyanagi, an assistant professor from the National Defense Academy of Japan, in Tokyo, has spent a full year at Maha aiding the development of our CASPAR modeling software.

Najoua Jouini has also worked to further the development of the CAPSAR simulation tool. She has spent her time investigating the thermal effects between the valve plate and the cylinder block. Her work has produced a useful thermal module to predict temerature in this gap, a topic for which she recently received recognition at the 5th FPNI Phd Symposium. She will be returning to Germany to finish her Diploma.

Donatien Keho is yet another servant of CASPAR. He has aided some of our other students by running simulations and interpreting the results. During pump analysis it is often necessary to run tens, sometimes hundreds, of simulations, and every concurrent process makes the job just a little bit quicker.
