Pump Workshop 2016 - Chicago, USA

Book a place in our exclusive 3 days Pump Workshop in Chicago, USA:

Advanced Design Methods for Rotodynamic Pumps in light of US DOE Energy Conservation Standards for Pumps

The core objective of this workshop is to introduce pump industry participants to advanced hydraulic design methods, which will improve the chances of meeting the new Energy Conservation Standards. The workshop is highly focused and valuable for both novice and expert designers of pumps of all types, i.e., axial, mixed flow and centrifugal.

The workshop will comprise a blend of instruction and individually supported hands-on activity, with participants executing blade design optimization studies on a case of their choice. TURBOdesign Suite, which is the only commercially available software for the inverse design of turbomachinery blading, will be used for the exercises during the workshop.

Instructor Bio - Mohammed A Siddiqi

The workshop will be conducted by Mohammed A Siddiqi, a 20-year veteran of the pump industry, who has joined ADT affiliate TURBOdesign Technology as Senior Engineering Manager in June, 2016.

Siddiqi brings with him an extensive background in the water solutions space, with expertise in the comprehensive design and development of all types of turbo pumps and applied water systems. He worked for virtually all of his previous career at Xylem (formerly ITT Corporation), where he initiated and led numerous breakthrough innovations, process improvements and best-in-class designs of turbomachinery products & families. He also established global centers of excellence in advanced design and simulation for Xylem, notably in India and China.

Siddiqi received his Master of Science degree in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering in 1996 from the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, where he developed a system for hypersonic flow studies in the NASA Mach 8 wind tunnel. Prior to arriving in the USA, he earned his Master of Science and Bachelor’s degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Osmania University in Hyderabad, India.

As the primary technical support leader for North America, Siddiqi provides direction, guidance and support to our customers in concert with the global ADT team, capturing customer needs and working with the global development team to ensure that these are fulfilled. In a consulting role, he helps ADT to provide unrivalled value to customers in developing the highest performing bladed systems, using a holistic, multi-disciplinary approach enabled by his profound experience in all facets of new product development.
