Additive manufacturing and sustainability
The Additive Manufacturing and 4D Printing Research group conducts research on novel use of materials, design guidelines and the societal impact of using 3D Printing.
This is a self-funded topic and t...
Automatic computational fluid-dynamics
Computational fluid-dynamics (CFD) is undergoing a revolution from steady to high-fidelity unsteady methods. A key time limitation to running CFD is in setting up a case to be run and processing data...
CFD modelling of plasma flow control
Active flow control can be utilised to modify fluid flow in advantageous ways without performance penalties of passive flow control. For example, to delay boundary layer separation, or alter noise ge...
Can AI based robot car win the race
A modern Formula 1 race is a breathtaking display of engineering precision. Yet the popularity of the sport arguably has less to do with the performance of the cars than with the skill and daring disp...
