About the Author
Dr. Fagbenle is an adjunct professor of mechanical engineering at the Center for Petroleum, Energy Economics and Law, University of Ibadan, Nigeria. He is also the former head of the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. He has taught engineering courses at several schools, including the University of Illinois (Urbana- Champaign, IL, USA), Iowa State University (Ames, IA, USA), Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (Kumasi, Ghana), South Bank University (London, UK) and Covenant University (Ota, Ogun State, Nigeria). He is a fellow of the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE), the Solar Energy Society of Nigeria (SESN), and the Nigerian Association for Energy Economics (NAEE), and a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). His areas of research are laminar boundary layers, energy, exergy, climate change, and energy policies for a more sustainable future. Dr. Amoo was a doctoral boundary layer student of Professor Fagbenle at the prestigious University of Ibadan, Nigeria. He is currently an engineer at Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems (Melbourne, FL, USA). He was formerly a senior mechanical engineer at Raytheon Missile Systems, to develop future missile technologies such as hypersonic technology for the United States and UTC-Pratt & Whitney in East Hartford, Connecticut, USA. He was also an engineer at Toyota Motor Manufacturing, USA. Together with a colleague at Pratt & Whitney, he obtained a patent for the development of a new technique that could optimize fan blades for next-generation low- carbon and advanced jet engines, which continues to be a NASA-funded initiative to this day. He is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). His areas of research are energy, exergy, nanofluids, and laminar boundary layer convective heat transfer. Dr. Aliu was a doctoral boundary layer student of Prof. Fagbenle. He is currently with the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Benin, Benin City, Nigeria, where he teaches various engineering courses and conducts research in the field of thermo-fluids. Dr. Falana was a doctoral boundary layer student of Prof. Fagbenle and is currently with the Mechanical Engineering Department at the prestigious University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Nigeria, where he teaches both undergraduate and post-graduate engineering courses. He is an avid researcher in theoretical and experimental thermo-fluids, in general, and boundary layer convective heat transfer in particular.
