Dr Neil Cagney


Research Overview

Fluid structure interaction, Flow-Induced Vibration, Complex Fluids, Multiphase Flows, Vertical Axis Wind Turbines, Mixing, Renewable Energy, Energy Harvesting


Neil’s research interests align with two major themes; Energy Systems and Future Mobility and Environmental and Climate Technologies. His work is focused on experimental analysis of unsteady fluid flows, often using a combination of flow measurements techniques (e.g. Particle-Image Velocimetry, visualisation), force measurement and post-processing methods (e.g. Lagrangian analysis). Applications of this work include External Aerodynamics and Energy Systems, and current projects involve printing of complex inks, developing methods to extract renewable energy at small scales from flow-induced vibrations and vertical-axis turbines.
