Vellore Institute of Technology

Over the past decade, Prof. V. Ramachandra Prasad has worked in the areas of multi-physical fluids dynamics and numerical simulation. His work has investigated complex phenomena of interest in mechanical engineering, applied mathematics, chemical engineering, and material processing. He has made fundamental contributions in magnetic fluid dynamics, thermal radiation heat transfer, fluid modeling, micropolar non-Newtonian hydrodynamics, magnetic induction flows, viscoelastic liquid flows, porous media, and boundary flows. He has published more than 150 journal articles in these areas and has made numerous conference presentations. He has published six books on radiation heat transfer, thermo-diffusion and diffusion-thermo effects boundary layers’ flows, and viscoelastic flows. His more recent work has involved non-Newtonian fluid dynamics, fluid-particle suspensions, and lid-driven cavities. He has used the numerical methods of finite difference, finite element, network simulation, and finite volume codes to solve problems in his areas of research in collaboration with US, Indian, Spanish, British, and Taiwanese researchers. He is a professor of Mathematics at Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore, India.
