Dr. Sallam research is focused on experimental fluid mechanics with application to high-speed propulsion (scramjet engines) and energy conversion systems. He received his PhD in 2002 in aerospace engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He joined Oklahoma State University in 2003 as an Assistant Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. In 2009 he was tenured and promoted to the rank of Associate Professor. He was awarded 4 teaching awards from the President of OSU-Tulsa and the Dean of Engineering, a summer faculty fellowship from the Air Force Research Lab at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, and the W.R. Marshall award from the Institute of Liquid Atomization and Spray Systems. Dr. Sallam taught 10 undergraduate and graduate courses: Thermal Fluid Design (MAE3524), Propulsion and Power (MAE4243), Experimental Fluid Dynamics (MAE4273), Energy Conversion (MA4263), Heat Transfer (MAE3233), Fluid Mechanics (ENSC3233), Compressible Flow (MAE3293), Engineering Analysis (MAE3013), Multiphase Flow (MAE5253), and Micro Flows (MAE5243). Dr. Sallam supervised 4 PhD students and 18 MS students. He is a naturalized U.S. citizen since 2013.
Research Interest: Propulsion and Power, Experimental Fluid Dynamics, Atomization and Sprays.
