Current PhD Studentship Projects

Advanced Intelligent Control for Building Management System - SEMS Industry-supported PhD studentship

Funding source: Carbon Numbers Ltd
Start: 01-10-2022  /  End: 31-03-2026

Previous Funded Research Projects

Wind and water turbines: Simulation of unsteady aerodynamic forces and theoretical modelling

Funding source: Royal Society
Start: 20-03-2019  /  End: 19-03-2022

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.

Organic Rankine Cycle

Marangoni Condensation of Steam-Ethanol Mixtures

A very small concentration of ethanol (e.g. 0.05% - 0.1% in mass) in the liquid phase has been found to give significantly higher (3-4 times) heat-transfer coefficients than found with pure steam. The mechanism of the enhancement is attributed to the fact that for condensation of binary mixtures, where the less …

Condensation Heat Transfer on Low-Finned Tubes

Low-finned condenser tubes are now widely used in modern plant. Design calculations are presently based on correlations of experimental data. Theoretical solution is problematic owing to the crucial role played by surface tension and curvature of the condensate surface which various in a complicated way over the fin and tube …

Condensation Heat Transfer in Microchannels

Microchannel heat exchangers have been widely considered as a revolutionary, advanced technology because they can provide more than 50% reduction in size and mass, refrigerant charge and air side pressure drop. Wide use of microchannel heat exchangers will make a significant contribution to reduction of energy consumption and consequently carbon emission. …
