Mr Aleef Rahman graduated from Newcastle University with honours, in 2019. He studied Bachelor of Engineering (Mech). For his honours thesis, Mr Aleef Rahman studied the dynamic behaviour of an innovative conveyor system aptly named, the Rail Conveyor. His thesis targeted the impact of using carriages as an alternative to traditional idlers. In addition to this, with the supervision of Dr Peter Robinson, Dr Michael Carr and Prof Craig Wheeler, Mr Aleef Rahman developed models to predict major drag resistances along the belt, and analysed how carriages can be utilised to improve current limitations of modern belt conveyors.
During his undergraduate studies, Mr Aleef Rahman took up an internship role with CBSPT where he worked as a Research Assistant with the University of Newcastle. The collaboration with CBSPT allowed him to publish a conference paper which was presented at the ICBMH 2019. After completing his studies, Mr Aleef Rahman continued his role as a casual research assistant where he was involved in several other projects. Projects included the Rail Conveyor Friction Model and Data Analysis for a Coal ship loader.
Currently Mr Aleef Rahman is completing a journal publication for the Dynamics of Modern Conveyor System at Newcastle Institute of Energy and Resources (NIER).
