Dr. Itimad Dawed Juma a faculty at the College of Engineering had published a paper in Scopes and Clarvet Classification (Q1) entitled (The Thermohydraulic Characteristics and Optimization Study of Radial Porous Heat Sinks Using Multi-Objective Computational Method) in the Journal of Heat Transmission - Journal of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).

The goal of research to use porous media (PM) to improve conductive heat transfer has become the focus of many researchers in recent years. Research has included addressing the ability of radial porous heat solutions to improve hydraulic properties and reduce the impact of the law of thermodynamics and by using response surface methodology technology.
