Background and activities

M. Salman Siddiqui is a postdoctoral fellow in Building Physics and Materials at the Faculty of Architecture and Design, Norwegian University of Science and Technology. He holds a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

Salman holds masters and bachelor’s degrees in Mechanical Engineering from National University of Sciences & Technology with specializations towards Renewable Energy Technologies (wind power, solar thermal systems, dynamic building envelops) and Computational Fluid Dynamics. 

His present research is focused on experimental and numerical investigations of thermo-physical behavior of responsive building envelops such as double skin facades. He has previously worked on developing computational methods, numerical solvers and reduced order models aimed towards energy harvesting of offshore/onshore/urban rooftop wind turbines. His research expertise includes, but not limited to numerical/experimental modeling of building facades/model wind turbines, design of experiments, computational fluid dynamics analysis using reynolds average navier-strokes (RANS) and large eddy simulations(LES) techniques, reduced order modeling, mathematical modeling of building & wind turbines, solar energy exploitation, data acquisition through sensors, big data analysis.

He coauthors more than thirty publications in international journals and conference proceedings. He occasionally peer-review scientific contributions of Elsevier, Scopus, ASME and AIAA journals.
