Mr. Ahmed Abdulsalam Maaroof, a Ph.D. student in the Department of Petroleum Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Koya University and a lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the same Faculty in Koya University has participated in the industrial combustion symposium organized by American Flame Research Committee (AFRC).

 The symposium took place between 12-14 of September, 2022, in Greenville, South Carolina, USA.

Mr. Ahmed Abdulsalam Maaroof is studying Ph.D. degree in oil and gas engineering with research focus on developing a new air assisted flare for low flow operation conditions, under supervision of Dr. Joseph Smith Professor at Missouri University of Science and Technology, USA and Asst. Prof. Dr. Mohammed Haseeb Sedeeq Zangana Department of Petroleum Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Koya University.

During the symposium, Mr. Ahmed Abdulsalam Maaroof, published a paper and presented his recent researches on testing a new design of an air assisted flare built specially for low flow operation conditions by taking the advantage of Coanda principle.

The published paper and presentation title were ‘Coanda effect enhanced air assisted flare for low flow operation: cold flow CFD analysis’.

In this research, CFD Code called C3D has been used to simulate the effect of Coanda principle and flow from slots surrounding the stack at the tip of the flare on increasing the cross flow in the stack. Cold flow approach has been applied in this research to measure the change in the momentum of the cross flow.

The results of simulation showed that the design was able to solve the low flow issue in flares by increasing the momentum in the stack, where it has been noticed that as the slot velocities increases the cross flow increases due to decreasing the flow diameter.

Koya University (KOU) is located in the city of Koya (Koy Sanjaq) which is 1.0 hr drive to the East of the Kurdistan Region capital Erbil (Arbil, Hewlér) in Kurdistan Region of F.R. Iraq. It is on the foothills of beautiful high mountain. Its campus has been carefully laid out to embrace the beautiful mountainous nature. . There are 4 Faculties and 2 Schools in KOU; Faculty of Engineering (FENG), Faculty of Science and Health (FSCH), Faculty of Education (FEDU), Faculty of Humanities and Social Silences (FHSS), Shcool of Physical Education (SPHE) and School of Medicine (SMED). Also, there are two research centers; Genome Center and Malai Gawra Center. Moreover, at KOU there is an English Language Center (BELC) at KOU has been opened with the sponsorship of IREX and American embassy in Baghdad as well as with the support of Spring International Language Center of The University of ArkansasKOU has two Scientific Journals; ARO-The Scientific Journal of Koya University, which is indexed by Clarivate Analytics (ESCI), and Koya University Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences (KUJHSS). KOU is a proactive member of Erasmus/ Marhaba Project and Erasmus+. KOU signed many Memorandum of Understandings (MoU) with many International Universities, e.g., The University of Arkansas (June 2015). The Lulea University in Sweden (April 2014), The University of Nottingham in the UKThe University of Buckingham in the UK (Oct 2008), Belkin University in Turkey (Sep 2009) The University of Greenwich in the UKCihan University-Erbil (2021) and Tishk International University (2021). Koya University is a memebr of The Association of Arab Universities and the International Association of Universities.
