Division of Aerospace Engineering and Fluid Mechanics
Our research is organised in 3 themes:
- Aerospace technologies
QMUL is a European research leader in spacecraft electric propulsion for nano- and micro satellites.
2. Optimisation and operational research
The core expertise of the division is in the coupling of optimisation algorithms with extremely demanding physics-based simulations (e.g. optimisation coupled with CFD), and heavy problems with a huge number of design parameters.
3. Multiscale fluid and solid mechanics
We have broad expertise in single-phase and multi-phase mechanics across scales, with unique strengths in aero- and hydrodynamics, fluid dynamics of printing, fluid dynamics of nanomaterials, , computational acoustics, and mesh-less methods.
