Personal profile


Dr Turkbeyler is the Postgraduate Course Director of MSc Advanced Mechanical Engineering at the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Automotive Engineering (MAAE). He is a fellow of Higher Education Academy -UK. Dr Turkbeyler also holds the roles of the School Ethics Coordinator and the School Placement and Employability Coordinator.

Dr Turkbeyler is the module leader for fluid mechanics and thermodynamics and teaches at both undergraduate and postgraduate level for the Courses of Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Systems Engineering, Oil & Gas Engineering and Renewable Energy Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering, Environment and Computing.  He supervises UG/PG project students at the Faculty.

Dr Turkbeyler was awarded his PhD in Thermofluids from Imperial College London and gained his MSc in Renewable Energy from the University of Reading. He earned his BSc in Mechanical Engineering with distinction.

His recent publications and research interests include the areas of numerical modelling and computer simulations of urban microclimates, urban airflow and thermal environments, multiphase flow in oil and gas application, multiphase flow meters, compressible flows, turbomachinery aerodynamics, thermofluid systems and renewable energy applications.

Dr Turkbeyler worked at Imperial College London, Queen’s University Belfast, and the University of Reading before moving to Coventry University in 2011. Dr Turkbeyler developed an integrated numerical model for studying urban microclimates – both airflow and thermal environment (EPSRC project), and a fast CFD flow solver for aerospace industrial applications (CEIAT project).
