Conor Fleming DPhil, P.Eng.


Dr. Conor Fleming joined Coanda in early 2020, after 10 years of computational fluid dynamics modeling in academic and industrial settings.

Conor holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the National University of Ireland, Galway and a DPhil (Ph.D. equivalent) in Engineering Science from the University of Oxford. His doctoral research at the University of Oxford examined the performance of tidal stream turbines in highly turbulent open channel flows via CFD modeling.

As a tunnel ventilation engineer with Atkins and SNC-Lavalin, Conor developed expertise in numerical and physical modeling of heat and mass transport through tunnels and buildings. He has experience at all stages of major infrastructure projects, from bid and concept design, through detail design development and coordination, to construction support, system commissioning and project close-out. In 2019 Conor co-authored design guidelines on road tunnel ventilation systems as a member of a World Road Association working group.

In addition to CFD modeling of multiphase, non-Newtonian pipe flows at Coanda, Conor maintains interests in fire and pollution modeling, tunnel ventilation and other complex HVAC challenges.
