Dr. Savvas Xanthos

Dr. Savvas Xanthos has a background in Mechanical Eng., with specialization in experimental fluid mechanics (Ph.D. 2004, City University, NYC). His research field has been in Fluid Mechanics, specializing in shock wave and expansion wave interaction with turbulence, hot wire anemometry techniques using 3D velocity, and fully 3D vorticity probes. He has also been researching force and moment measurements with locally developed stings and balances on high velocity projectiles, blast wave mitigation utilizing shock wave propagation, Laser Doppler Velocimetry (LDV), Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), and Planar Laser Induced Fluorescence (PLIF). In the the last few years he has also been interested in the field of biomedical engineering and especially applying experimental procedures as well as finite element method (FEM) solutions to verify various theoretical models for atherosclerosis in human arteries. In particular multiple optical techniques such as confocal microscopy and electron microscopy were applied and used to further understand the formation and instability of such plaques. Moreover, a direct approach on the determination of the mechanical properties of coronary arteries has been of particular interest since these data can be used in finite element programs to better model the biomechanics and fluid mechanics of atherosclerotic lesions. Finally, for the last three years he has served as a research consultant on the development of a three-dimensional CFD model investigating the hydrodynamic behavior of activated sludge in Final Clarifiers of Water Pollution Control Plants. This model has been supplemented with bench scale experiments and data for the last 8 years. The findings of this modeling endeavor have been implemented in those final clarifiers at a cost of around $2,000,000.00 and the clarifier performance is being benchmarked against the model predictions with experiments performed in late 2009 and 2010. The CFD model developed is now being used as a tool for Final Settling Tank optimization studies for several municipalities in the US such as New Haven in Connecticut, DCWASA in Washington DC and Passaic Valley in New Jersey. He has collaborated in many different types of grants under a wide inter disciplinary area of mechanical, biomedical and civil engineering projects and has been an author of multiple scientific publications relating to the aforementioned areas of interest some of which have won different awards from the scientific community. Dr. Xanthos has recently successfully completed a one-year research placement at the University of Cyprus on a Fullbright Scholarship from the USA.
