Biography

Dr. Kefayati successfully completed his Master's in Mechanical Engineering at Babol University of Technology in 2012. He studied a mesoscopic numerical method called Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) to simulate fluid mechanics and heat transfer problems. Dr. Kefayati published several outstanding papers in prestigious journals in different areas of Fluid Mechanics and the considerable resume provided him with IPRS (International Postgraduate Research Scholarships) and APA (Australian Postgraduate Awards scholarships) from Flinders University, Newcastle University and Wollongong University for PhD. He attended to Flinders University in 2013 and finished his PhD within the School of Computer Science, Engineering and Mathematics under supervision of Prof. Raja Huilgol at Flinders University in 2017. It should be noted that Dr Kefayati published 40 papers just during his PhD which 30 papers were published in Rank A journals based on ERA 2010 journal ranking. In his PhD thesis, He worked on isothermal and non-isothermal problems of Bingham fluids using macroscopic (FEM) and mesoscopic (LBM) numerical methods. The outstanding project published in high quality journals and he received the Best Higher Degree Research paper in 2016 at Flinders University. After finishing his PhD in 2017, He received a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship for 2 years from Hong Kong Polytechnic University (Polyu) where he worked on immersed boundaries, fluid structure interaction and turbulent flow in non-Newtonian fluids, using LBM. After spending one year in Polyu, he joined to University of Tasmania as a Lecturer in Computational Mechanics.

Robust salmon feed delivery systems (2022 - 2023)$421,634
Description
In salmon aquaculture, feed is conveyed from the feed barge to individual pens using High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) pipes, which float in a loose bundle. These pipes, and their connections to feed barges and pens, can become damaged and disordered in bad weather. Maintaining feed pipe systems in existing exposed sites is already challenging; maintenance and repair costs will increase in more exposed sites. Interruptions to feeding are expensive. This project will understand the dynamics of feed pipe systems, improve robustness of feed pipe systems in the most energetic existing sites, and help develop systems for future more exposed sites.

Description
The proposed research project will employ Combined Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics and Finite Element Method (CSPHFEM) or other newly developed methods (such as the Hencky bar chain model) to simulate structural components of offshore aquaculture systems, as well as their soil-structure and fluid-structure interactions, while considering the effects of field conditions in both low- and high-energyareas.

Boosting research capability to develop value-added products for the food and wood industries in regional areas. (2021 - 2023)$4,015,643
Description
Food and wood products are areas of strategic growth for Tasmania and regional Australia, contributing $1.6 billion and $615 million, respectively, to the annual Tasmanian economy. A thriving and sustainable sector requires continued innovation to locally value-add and diversify products and markets. Innovation is underpinned by research strengths and a workforce sector connected to advances in technology and trained graduates. The University of Tasmania (UTas) is committed, through its strategic plan, to deliver impactful research to help Tasmania prosper, and to have influence nationally and globally. Through collaborations, this three-year project will increase research and development activity at UTas to support value-adding in niche food and wood products in regional areas. The delivery of the project will build cross-disciplinary, integrated collaborations at UTas, and together with long-term external partnerships and collaborations, will maximise the benefits of interdisciplinary approaches to delivering impactful research for the regions

Mount Wellington Debris Flow Risk Reduction and Mitigation Strategies (2020 - 2021)$147,487
Description
The primary objective of this project is to reduce risk and mitigate debris flow hazards by assessing a range of protective structures such as check dams and debris flow barriers. The project, undertaken by UTAS in collaboration with MRT and Hobart City Council will also target protective measures for critical infrastructure and services within the Greater Hobart region. Reports will be produced, informing key strategic policy for debris flow risk reduction and mitigation. Building on the preliminary results of Mineral Resources Tasmania, identifying regions of greatest risk to debris flow, geotechnical models will be created to assess the impact of debris flow events on critical infrastructure. These models will provide important information to inform hazard reduction, assisting the end-user and NDRRGP application partner Hobart City Council in the development of guidelines related to debris flow events. Analysis of debris flow barriers for high-risk locations will provide Hobart City Council and SES with strategies to reduce the susceptibility of landslip induced damage to property, critical infrastructure and the environment.
