Research Interests/Professional Background

Dr. Ghazi Droubi is a Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering at the School of Engineering of the Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, UK. He obtained scholarship and earned PhD (Mechanical Engineering) in 2012 from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh through research on ‘Monitoring Particle Impact Energy Using Acoustic Emission Energy’ under the joint supervision of Prof. Bob Reuben, and Prof. Graeme White. During his PhD studies he developed an acoustic emission (AE) based monitoring technique to estimate the amount of energy dissipated in material due to solid particle impacts under a variety of conditions. He earned distinction in BSc Engineering (Mechanical) in 2003 from Al-Baath University, Syria.

Dr. Droubi main research interests include the field of non-destructive techniques and complimentary expertise in condition monitoring using Acoustic Emission. In Particular, using AE to monitor erosion and corrosion phenomena due to both solid particle impacts and bubble collapse. Also, his research is aimed at providing some accurate and real-time information pertaining to structural health condition and performance in order to plan and design maintenance activities, increase the safety, and to broaden the knowledge of the structure being monitored.
