Vivek is a MASc student in the Department of Mechanical Engineering working with Dr. Murray Hodgson. He is working as a research assistant in SBSP. His research explores the optimal design of natural-ventilation silencers. His research outcomes would be improved experimental methods for characterizing the acoustical and airflow performance of natural ventilation openings and silencers, and optimal designs and performance data for novel configurations. His project title is “Design, optimization and the validation of the use of ducts in naturally ventilated buildings”.
