Kurt Lund Consulting

As an independent consultant, my breadth of experience in mechanical engineering extends from prototype fabrication and machine building to the advanced design and mathematical modeling of engineering systems. I haved served as a member of the research staff at the University of California, San Diego (Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering) and was an associate professor of mechanical engineering at California State Universities at Fullerton and San Diego. My academic work includes fundamental studies in terrestrial and space-based energy systems, spacecraft thermal management, and fluidized bed reactors, with over 40 related publications, including several in COMSOL Conference proceedings.

Areas of Expertise

I have expertise in the following areas:

  • Fluid flow
  • Heat transfer
  • Energy systems and structures
  • Laboratory and machine shop capability

Model Development

Numerous models within COMSOL Multiphysics have been used to develop products for my clients over the years. COMSOL software has been instrumental in helping the design process and enabling new technologies. Models have ranged from two-phase heat transfer and complex heat exchangers to vibrations and structural dynamics.
