His current research activities extend around two major topics: one investigating the application of ultrasonic waves in water treatment, desalination, and mechanical friction reduction. The other topic is concerned with the mathematical modelling of gas bearings dynamics and stability. Some of his recent research activity outcomes are 2020: Journal paper: Cazan, A., ‘Novel Mathematical Solution to Reynolds Equation for Externally Pressurized Gas Bearings as a Combination of the Solutions of two Initial Value Problems, ‘Published in: “Proceedings on Engineering Sciences,” Vol.2. 2019: Co-author ‘Ultrasonic Frequency Inverter for Piezoelectric Transducer Driving: The Negative Effects on Grid and The Intelligent Solution ‘, 2019 International Conference on Electrical and Computing Technologies and Applications (ICECTA), AURAK 2018: Grant awarded by the School of Graduate Studies and Research, American University of Ras Al Khaimah for research proposal titled: ‘Degradation of Refinery Wastewater Organic Constituents using Ultrasonic Waves. ‘ Journal paper in progress: Cazan, A., ‘Mathematical Model of a Novel Eddie Current Magnetic sleeve damper for Externally Pressurized Gas Bearings.
The Logic and Problem Solving module has been introduced to develop the students abilities to solve problems using logical, analytical and empirical methodologies and concepts. This will be achieved using valid rational, systematic questioning and observed practical experimentation. This will encourage a higher level of thinking and promote a more scientific approach improving the student ability to analyse a problem and propose a suitable solution.
