Welcome to the website of Amir A. Aliabadi. Our group, Atmospheric Innovations Research (AIR) Laboratory, has a passion for applications of thermo-fluids in buildings and the environment. An understanding of single and multi-phase fluid mechanics, heat, and mass transfer phenomena can help solve many problems that involve the study of thermo-fluid systems. Some example applications include Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC), energy engineering, indoor and outdoor air quality, atmospheric science, and climate change. We are specialized in analytical methods, simulations, and experiments and aim to integrate relevant research in universities, institutes, laboratories, and industries. We foster collaborations among students, researchers, and professionals in a variety of research projects. We hope you have a pleasant visit here and please contact us with any inquiries.
Amir A. Aliabadi is serving as a guest editor for the Atmosphere journal for a special issue titled: Transport Phenomena in the Atmospheric Boundary Layer. In the context of the Atmospheric Boundary Layer (ABL), transport phenomena refer to the exchanges of momentum (wind velocity components), energy (temperature), and mass (water vapor, natural atmospheric constituents such as ozone, carbon dioxide, and inert gases, as well as gaseous and particulate pollutants). Such phenomena within ABL are not well understood due to complex physical and chemical processes that are ever-present in the ABL. Transport phenomena can be studied in either the Eulerian or Lagrangian frameworks. This special issue of Atmosphere invites research articles centered around understanding transport phenomena within the ABL from experimental, analytical, and numerical points of view across the scales from micro to meso scales. Preference will be given to articles that investigate transport phenomena within the ABL at some level of fundamental and mathematical depth. Link to Special Issue.
