Ahmed  is a PhD Student in the Combustion Chemistry Centre, NUI Galway. He received the BSc in Mechanical Engineering from Assiut University Egypt in 2011, and master’s degree also in Mechanical Engineering from Assiut University 2017. Ahmed was working as teaching assistant at Assiut university from March 2013 to May 2017 and a lecturer assistant after getting his masters from June 2017 to June 2018 after that he got a PhD Scholarship at Combustion Chemistry Centre (C3) at NUI Galway. His primary field of study at Assiut University was improving air motion in Internal Combustion Engines cylinder.


Using Rapid Compression Machine (RCM) and Shock Tube (ST) for measuring the auto-ignition characteristic (Ignition Delay Time (IDT)) of:

  • C1–C7 n-alkane mixture with Methane based fuel as Natural Gas (NG)
  • Effect of NOx addition to n-alkane and C1–C7 n-alkane mixture with Methane


His MSc research included an experimental investigation as well as numerical simulation of the influence of different configurations of inlet port shapes with intake valve types on swirl generation in diesel engines under steady flow conditions and different engine operating conditions.
