2D nanomaterials hold immense technological promise thanks to extraordinary intrinsic properties such as ultra-high conductivity, strength and unusual semiconducting properties. Our understanding of how these extremely thin and flexible objects are processed in flow is however inadequate, and this is hindering progress towards true market applications. When processed in liquid ...

Amount: £279,773

GPU-LES of flow around a jet engine installed under a wing and a fuselage body at a take-off regime: vorticity field is shown inside the jet, while the surface shows pressure distribution just outside the jet hydrodynamic field.JINA: Jet Installation Noise Abatement


Principal Investigator: Sergey KARABASOV
Funding source: EPSRC Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council
Start: 15-01-2019  /  End: 14-01-2022
Amount: £422,276

One of the major aeroacoustical challenges of modern aircraft is the so-called "jet installation effect" due to the interaction of the jet hydrodynamic field with the airframe. The JINA project aims to address this challenge by bringing together expertise in experimental and computational aeroacoustics as well as design optimisation.

Iso-surface of velocity magnitude for the case of H-type Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT), LES, produced by Miss Yan, PhD student Wind and water turbines: Simulation of unsteady aerodynamic forces and theoretical modelling


Principal Investigator: Eldad AVITAL
Co-investigator(s): Fariborz MOTALLEBI, Huasheng WANG and Ranjan VEPA
Funding source: Royal Society
Start: 20-03-2019  /  End: 19-03-2021
Amount: £12,000

High fidelity flow-structural dynamics simulations of wind and water turbines will be pursued using advanced computing clusters and complemented by wind tunnel tests. The results will be analysed and used to derive new fast models that will support future development of new renewable energy devices extracting kinetic energy from the wind and water flows.
