Current activitiesDr Shahneh joined the Aerospace Engineering Department at Cranfield University to research and lecture in airframe systems design in 2009. He lectures on topics including hydraulics, pneumatics, flight control actuation systems and aerodynamics, as well as providing supervision on related student projects. He is also acting as project examiner and independent Academic Representative to monitor the progress of students. Dr Shahneh has a record of published papers and contributes to journal and conference papers. He is a member of the Royal Aeronautical Society.
Dr Shahneh is the Course Director for the Pre-Masters in Engineering course. The course provides a professional grounding for engineers to further their studies in Aerospace, Power & Propulsion, Automotive, CFD, Offshore, Astronautics and Renewable Energy.
Current research interests include airframe systems technologies focusing on environmentally approaches. He is also involved in projects relating to upgrading aircraft performance.
ClientsDr Shahneh has years of experience in scientific and industrial activities, both experimental and theoretical. Following his graduation in Mechanical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, he began his career in industry as a design engineer working in mechanical systems, HVAC, and clean room design and management. He took part in many on-the-job training fellowships in different countries and is a highly skilled engineer.
He joined Queen Mary University, London in 2002 to complete his PhD in Aerospace Engineering. The nature of his research was both experimental and computational - work was carried out in a supersonic wind tunnel to verify the effect of a novel vortex generator on the attenuation of shock induced separation, and then verified by modelling the experimental facilities by a computational fluid dynamic code, STAR-CD.
He started his teaching career in 2002 in the areas of Fluid Mechanics, Mathematics and Aerodynamics.
