Cavitation Instabilities of Pumps: From Linear Analyses to Experimental Observations
Prof. Satoshi Watanabe (Kyushu University, Japan)

Biography Abstract Recording
Originally from Hang Zhou, Zhejiang Province, China, Kunyuan Zhang is a Professor in the College of Energy and Power Engineering, Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. He has conducted research in the field of inlet aerodynamics for Ramjet and Scramjet for 41 years. He was visiting scholar in the Institute for Aerospace Studies, University of Toronto from 1983 to 1985 and also visiting scholar in the German Aerospace Center (DLR) from 1990 to 1993. His research interests include airbreathing hypersonic propulsion, aerodynamics for inlet and nozzle, shock waves and shock interactions. Over the past two decades Professor Kunyuan Zhang and his team have studied extensively the theory of hypersonic inlet with curved compression and systematically established its inverse design methodology. He has authored or co-authored around 100 scientific papers and he is the author of recently published book titled with Hypersonic Curved Compression Inlet and its Inverse Design.
