Optimal transport of liquids in pipelines

This study will investigate the optimal transport of liquids in a network of pipelines, i.e., the objective of the research is to find the most efficient way to transport the liquid from one ''mother'' location to several ''daughter'' locations. The approach will be an effective blend of numerical and mathematical techniques.

Frequency analysis and design of nonlinear systems: theories, methods and their applications

This project is concerned with the development of the theories and methods for the frequency analysis and design of nonlinear systems and the application of these theories and methods in an wide range of science and engineering areas. Read more

Transition to high performance railway overhead power lines

Recently undertaken research at Sheffield has identified opportunities to reduce the cost and improve the reliability of rail electrification systems through improvements to materials and design of the pantograph to overhead line contact. Read more

Techno-economic optimisation of the CO2 value chain

The utilisation of CO2 within the Power-to-X (PtX) concept can produce value added products, such as fuels and chemicals that can substitute fossil value chains and has the potential to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. Read more

Damage characterisation and root cause analysis of wind turbine pitch bearings

Blade pitch bearings of large scale wind turbines control the individual blades in order to maximise power generation at low wind speeds and to prevent turbine damages under high winds. Read more

Investigation of white etching crack damage mechanism in wind turbine gearbox bearings

Modern wind turbine gearbox bearings are failing prematurely, by white structure flaking and axial cracking, which may be caused by the propagation of subsurface white etching cracks (WECs). Read more

Adjoint based optimization of vertical axis wind turbines

Recently vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) have been more installed in urban areas than before. They are known to perform better in urban regions compared to horizontal axis wind turbines as they do not require alignment to the oncoming flow. Read more

Computational analysis of the flow through aerofoil cascades

One of the major global concerns is the environmental pollution from the burning of fossil fuels, and there is a growing awareness of the impact of emission from the shipping industry using fossil fuel as a power source. Read more

Advanced Wind Turbine Control Systems

Wind turbine control is necessary to ensure low maintenance costs and efficient performance. The control system also guarantees safe operation, optimizes power output, and ensures long structural life. Read more
