Doctoral Candidate

Mohammad Kojourimanesh


PDEng Mohammad Kojourimanesh is a Doctoral Candidate (Ph.D.) in the Power & Flow group under the supervision of Prof. dr. Philip de Goey, Prof. dr. Ir. Ines Lopez Arteaga, and Dr. Viktor Kornilov. His research focuses on developing a system-level approach to address the challenge of thermo-acoustic design and control of acoustic instability in combustion appliances. This system-level approach enables new modeling and experimental identification strategies to describe the thermo-acoustic response of flames/burners. The method relies on two acoustic measurements only at the cold side of the combustion appliance. On the other hand, to experimentally study the thermo-acoustic intrinsic instability, ITA modes, one may need compact acoustically anechoic terminations working in a wide range of frequencies at both sides of the flame/burner. Therefore, the other goal of this research is developing this kind of anechoic terminations.


Mohammad Kojourimanesh was born in Shiraz, Iran. He obtained his BSc and MSc in Mechanical Engineering in 2008 and 2011. Control and robotics sciences captivated his interest to do his BSc project. Later, he devoted himself to the Inverse Acoustics field such that his master thesis was selected as the top dissertation in Iran. He was teaching and working for nine years (2008-2016) in HVAC and gas Industries. Besides, he was a member of different research projects and he published twelve papers. He was selected as one of the 35 world young professionals in the gas industry by IGU. Then, he got a PDEng position from University of Twente in 2016. Therefore, he moved to The Netherlands to investigate the noise reduction for ventilation units of Brink climate systems BV. In 2018, he was awarded the title of PDEng in Energy & Process Technology. In the same year, he started to work in Power & Flow group as a Ph.D. Candidate.
