Welcome to the Georgia Tech Cryo Lab. We are located in Rooms 3-25 and 3-30 of the Gilbert Hillhouse Boggs Building in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology.

Our mission is to perform experimental and theoretical research in the fields of cryogenics, fluids and heat transfer, energy physics, and thermal science as well as many other areas in the aerospace, mechanical, electrical, defense, energy, nuclear, chemical, and space sectors. We specialize in component and system level experiments, theoretical modeling, numerical and computational fluid dynamics modeling, and developing innovative and revolutionary applications for scientific, industrial, military, and governmental use.

I invite you to navigate our web site and explore our ongoing research projects.

About Professor S. Mostafa Ghiaasiaan


S. Mostafa Ghiaasiaan is a Professor in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. After receiving a PhD in Thermal Science from UCLA in 1983, he worked in the aerospace industry for eight years, conducting research and development activity on modeling and simulation of transport processes, multiphase flow, and thermal-hydraulic aspects of nuclear power. He joined the faculty at Georgia Institute of Technology in 1991.

Professor Ghiaasiaan has written more than 200 publications on transport phenomena and multiphase flow. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and a registered Professional Mechanical Engineer in California. He has been serving as Executive Editor for the journal Annals of Nuclear Energy for Asia, Africa, Australasia and Middle East since 2006. He is also the author of two widely used graduate textbooks: Two-Phase Flow, Boiling and Condensation in Conventional and Miniature Systems (First Edition, 2008, Second Edition 2016, Cambridge University Press); and Convective Heat and Mass Transfer, First Printing, 2011, Second Printing, 2014).
