Improving heat wave responses in elderly individuals

The interaction between climate change, natural ageing, and sedentary behaviour make the elderly (65+ years old) a highly vulnerable cohort for heat-related illness during heat waves. Read more

Cost and efficiency focused optimisation of domestic waste water heat recovery application

  Research Group: Engineering Analysis Simulation and Tribology Research Group
Research Group. Future Cities Research Network. Engineering Analysis Simulation and Tribology Research Group. Proposed supervisory team. Read more

High resolution methods for assessment of heat loss from plants and arrays of buildings.

PROJECT SUMMARY.  . With this project, we propose an investigation into a variety of dynamics and effects produced by the interaction of an array of buildings (or a set of heat sources in an industrial plant or in a power plant) with a cross flow (horizontal wind). Read more

The use of green infrastructure to mitigate the urban heat island effect and climate change in cities: a multi-scalar, multiple benefit approach.

One of the main threats of Global Climate Change (GCC) is rising temperatures that can negatively impact human health/wellbeing. By 2120, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicts global temperature rise of 2.5-10°F. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: The impact of subsurface heterogeneity on the performance of Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (ATES) systems

Global energy needs are steadily rising with a predicted increase of 45% within the next 15 years. In the long-term, sustainable energy is hoped to connect economic growth to increased social equity while preserving natural resources in line with the UN sustainable development goals. Read more

Computer simulations of momentum, heat & mass transfer in droplet-laden airflows

Droplets generated and exhausted when sneezing and coughing are a prominent vehicle for virus spreading. Based on flow visualization experiments it has been speculated that formation of clouds in which droplets evaporate slowly due to a moist and warm atmosphere they are embedded in enable long-distance spreading. Read more

NERC GW4+ DTP studentship: Future Weather Hazards and Compound Climate Risk

Project background. This project will explore causality between weather hazards/extreme climate events and underlying or concurring environmental conditions, identified as one typology ‘compound risk’ (Zscheischler et al., 2020). Read more

(MRC DTP) Assessing dynamic changes in temperature and metabolism at the cellular level using supersensitive thermometry

Metabolism sustains all aspects of cellular function and plays a major role in directing fundamental cellular processes, including embryonic development, tissue repair and regeneration, cell division and differentiation, and muscle contraction. Read more
