Iskander Akhatov graduated from the School of Physics of the Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia, in 1979 and obtained his PhD there from the School of Mechanics and Mathematics in 1983. In 1991, he defended his second dissertation for a Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (the highest academic degree in Russia) at Lavrentyev Institute for Hydrodynamics, Novosibirsk. Prof. Akhatov has been working in the academic field of multiphase systems and its engineering applications for more than 30 years and has more than 130 publications in internationally recognized peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings.
During the 1990s Prof. Akhatov’s scientific contributions were mainly in the fields of multiphase fluid dynamics; combustion and detonation; non-Newtonian fluids; acoustic cavitation; sonoluminescence. He received many international research grants and was elected a Member of the International Organizing Committee of Symposia of Multiphase Flow (Lyon -1998, New Orleans – 2001), a Member of the National Committee for Theoretical and Applied Mechanics of Russia and a Member of the Academy of Sciences of Republic Bashkortostan, Russia. As a University professor in Russia, he served as a Full Professor and Department Chair for 10 years. In the Russian Academy of Sciences he was also elected Director of Institute of Mechanics, and served as a Vice-President of Ufa Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences for 7 years.
In 2003, Prof. Akhatov joined North Dakota State University, where he was awarded College of Engineering and Architecture Researcher of the Year in 2005, tenured in 2007, and promoted to Full Professor in 2008. His research program at NDSU was called “Multiphase and Multiscale Fluid Dynamics, with applications to energy, materials, and biotechnology”, and Prof. Akhatov won, among others, four National Science Foundation grants to support it. During the eleven years at NDSU his research group made significant progress in four research projects: (1) Collimated aerosol beam–direct write, and its application to micro-fabrication of flexible electronics and solar cells; (2) STM-controlled capillary-based nanolithography; (3) Liquid flow in anisotropic porous media, and its application to composite materials manufacturing; (4) Nanocomposite materials reinforced with carbon nanotubes.
In 2010 Prof. Akhatov won a mega-grant of the Government of the Russian Federation and built from scratch a research center “Center for Micro- and Nanoscale Dynamics of Dispersed Systems” at Bashkir State University, Ufa, Russia.

Number of ECTS credits: 6
Course Classification: Science, Technology, and Engineering
Thermal-Fluid Sciences course is designed for Skoltech students who need exposure to key concepts in the thermal-fluid sciences in order to successfully apply them in research programs of various Skoltech CREIs. The text is made up of three parts: (1) Thermodynamics, (2) Fluid Mechanics, and (3) Heat and Mass Transfer.
1. This course will provide the students with an understanding of the first and second laws of thermodynamics and their application to engineering systems. At the end of this course students will be able to solve typical problems involving application of the first and second laws of thermodynamics to pure substances. This will include understanding and using the property tables.
Topics for Thermodynamics Part:
• Properties of a Pure Substance
• First Law of Thermodynamics and Energy Equation
• Energy Analysis for a Control Volume
• The Second Law of Thermodynamics
• Second-Law Analysis for a Control Volume
2. This course will provide the students with an understanding of the basic principles of fluid dynamics and their application to engineering systems. At the end of this course students will be able to solve problems involving fluid dynamics typical for a mechanical engineer.
Topics for Fluid Mechanics Part:
• Fluid Statics
• Elementary Fluid Dynamics—The Bernoulli Equation
• Fluid Kinematics
• Finite Control Volume Analysis
• Differential Analysis of Fluid Flow
• Similitude, Dimensional Analysis, and Modeling
• Viscous Flow in Pipes
• Flow over Immersed Bodies
• Compressible Flow
3. This course will provide the students with an understanding of the basic principles of heat and mass transfer and their application to engineering systems. At the end of this course students will be able to solve problems involving conduction, convection, radiation heat transfer as well as heat exchanger design. This will include understanding and using the property tables.
Topics for Heat and Mass Transfer Part
• One-Dimensional, Steady-State Conduction
• Two-Dimensional, Steady-State Conduction
• Transient Conduction
• Introduction to Convection
• Forced Convection: External Flow
• Forced Convection: Internal Flow
• Free Convection
• Heat Exchangers
• Diffusion Mass Transfer
4. The students will also be required to work as part of a team on an open-ended design project. This project will involve the application of concepts learned in the course.
Calculus, Differential Equations (ODE and PDE), General Physics.
