Development of Systems Modelling Methods for Aerodynamic Control in Very Low Earth Orbits

Operation of spacecraft in very low Earth orbits (VLEO), those below 450 km in altitude, is generally avoided due to the significantly increased atmospheric density and therefore aerodynamic drag that either requires propulsive compensation or can critically limit the operational lifetime of the satellite.

SCENARIO: The effect of non-neutral winds on wind power aerodynamics (ref. SC2022_28)

According to the UK government, offshore wind is intended to deliver 40GW of by 2030. As our society becomes ever-more dependent on wind power, it is increasingly important to gain a deeper understanding and more accurate predictability of our wind power availability to guarantee a greener future.

SCENARIO: The aerodynamics of skyscrapers: tall building clusters and the urban environment (ref. SC2022_15)

By 2050 our cities will host 68% of the world’s population, compared to the current 54%, and 33% in the 1960s. This increase is often accomplished by the proliferation of tall buildings (TBs) that maximise the provision of housing and commerce using a limited street-level footprint. Read more

CO2 Capture directly from the atmosphere

The design of the forthcoming future is negative in emissions. Among the negative emission technologies options, those capturing CO2 directly from the air are called Direct Air Capture technologies. Read more

Amine solvent degradation in CO2 capture

CO2 capture and storage is believed to be a promising option for controlling CO2 emissions in the short to medium term. Several methods exist for CO2 capture, with amine capture being the most promising commercial technology at the present time. Read more
