The Energy GPS: on energy future, fossils and beyond
Dr H Tan
Applications accepted all year round
This project provides an engineering based multidisciplinary research on Sustained Energy Security. The aim is to investigate the energy future based on three main pillars, defined as the Energy GPS.
Behaviour and design of thin-walled metallic shell systems
Dr J Wang
30 April 2019
Wind energy is currently representing the fastest growth area of all renewables, particularly in the UK. The height of the wind turbine towers is continuously increasing to cope with the growing energy demands and engineers need to understand the possible failure mechanisms in these slender structures.
