Sean Delfel Ph.D.


Dr. Sean Delfel joined Coanda in 2011 bringing with him 10 years of experience in computational, theoretical and experimental fluid dynamics. He obtained his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of British Columbia (UBC) working on the design of rotary screens for use in the pulp and paper industry through the use of computational and experimental modelling.

Previously, he obtained his Bachelor of Science from the University of Washington in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering and worked for the Boeing Company in the static loads group performing analytical, experimental and computational loads analysis on commercial aircraft.

Sean has experience with a wide range of flows including non-Newtonian fluids, multiphase flows (liquid-solid and liquid-gas), reacting flows, and low speed and compressible aerodynamics.
