Research Highlights

The Sir James Lighthill Best Student Paper Award won by Vasily Gryazev

Congratulations to Vasily Gryazev whose paper on the modelling of noise propagation in heated jets won the Sir James Lighthill Best Student Paper Award at the 26th International Congress on Sound and Vibration (ICSV26). The award is for the best paper published in the Proceedings of IIAV Annual International Congress ... [more]

Making a splash is all in the angle

Making a splash depends on the angle of a liquid as it hits and moves along a surface, according to a new study from Queen Mary University of London. If a droplet hits a dry solid surface fast enough it will splash and being able to predict a splash is ... [more]

Funding Awarded To Develop a Simulation Tool For Airside Operations Incorporating Intelligent/Autonomous Taxiing

Two Queen Mary researchers have been awarded further funding to develop a simulation tool to quantify the savings of fuel burn and time of taxiing aircraft by integrating more advanced and automated decision support systems. Dr Jun Chen and Dr Michal Weiszer, from the School of Engineering and Materials Science, ... [more]

Technology to capture energy from sea waves awarded funding

A team from Queen Mary has been awarded funding to develop technology to capture energy from waves at sea. Wave Energy Scotland (WES) will grant £461,345 to the team from the School of Engineering and Materials Science to develop an adaptive hierarchical model predictive control framework for wave energy converters (WECs). ...

EUR225K Grant Funding Success

The EU has agreed provide EUR225,000 to fund the KAFKA project: "Efficient Computational Methods for Active Flow Control Using Adjoint Sensitivities" Active flow control aims to change the character of the flow by suction, blowing or pulsating jets. Such jets may e.g. be able to replace bulky car spoilers ... [more]

Airbus funds PhD project on shape optimisation of winglets

Airbus UK is a partner for a 3.5y CASE studentship with J.-D. Mueller's fluid optimisation group. The PhD project for Gordon Lindsay will apply our CAD-based gradient-enabled shape parametrisation tools to perform multi-disciplinary shape optimisation of winglets. [more]

Queen Mary project to reduce aircraft noise awarded funding

A new project led by engineers at Queen Mary University of London that aims to reduce aircraft noise has won significant funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The £422,275 EPSRC grant will fund the Jet Installation Noise Abatement (JINA) project, which will bring together expertise in experimental ... [more]
