Vallampati Ramachandra Prasad

Vellore Institute of Technology

Prof. V. Ramachandra Prasad is currently working as a Professor in the Mathematics Department, School Advanced Sciences, Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore, Tamil Nadu, India. He has 25 years of teaching experience and has authored more than 100 publications in the area of fluid dynamics and heat transfer. Over the past decade he has worked in the areas of multi-physical fluid 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, micro polar non-Newtonian hydrodynamics, magnetic induction flows, viscoelastic liquid flows, porous media, and boundary flows. He has authored over 100 journal articles in these areas and also numerous conference presentations. He has published six books on radiation heat transfer, thermo-diffusion and diffusion-thermo effects on boundary layer flows, and Viscoelastic flows. More recent work has involved non-Newtonian fluid dynamics, fluid particle suspensions, and lid driven cavities. The numerical methods he has used are the finite difference method, finite element method, network simulation methods, and finite volume codes. I have worked in collaboration with US, Indian, Spanish, British, and Taiwanese researchers. He is working as reviewer for over 100 national and international journals.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Mateo Pulko

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
