Testing Robotics and Autonomous Systems Using Search-based Techniques

  Research Group: Applied Computing
Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) are becoming indispensable for human productivity and it is estimated that there will be a £13 billion global market for RAS by 2025. Read more

Autoignition and Turbulent Flame Structure of Jets under Cross Flow Conditions

The impact of thermos-physical-chemical property variations of drop-in-fuels on mixing, ignition and flame structure will be rigorously investigated under cross-flow conditions using various optical and laser diagnostics methods. Read more

Noise reduction of Urban Air Mobility Vehicles using CFD

Urban air mobility vehicles (UAMVs) offer an opportunity to utilise airspace to vastly increase transport capacity and provide near door-to-door service. Read more

Application of non-linear boat-tail configurations to the drag reduction of commercial road vehicles

The optimisation of the aerodynamic drag of road vehicles is a very important research area both economically and ecologically. Within the UK, these vehicles continue to be the largest contributor within the transport sector to greenhouse gas emissions, constituting 28% of all emissions in 2018. Read more

Low cost thermal desalination PhD

An industrial desalination technology currently faces major challenges in minimisation of the power consumption, system optimisation with minimum fouling, minimisation of the environmental impact, and development of zero liquid discharge systems. Read more

Development of a framework for maritime human risk-informed design

Human operators play a crucial role in terms of achieving safe and efficient marine operations. Because of significant human involvement in maritime operations, it is not surprising to observe that when a maritime accident happens it is often attributed to some sort of human error. Read more

Variable Pitch Fan in Reverse Thrust: Engine Operability and Design Studies PhD

Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD studentship within the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) in Aero Systems Design, Integration & Performance at Cranfield University, in the theme of using Variable Pitch Fan (VPF) for reverse thrust to improve performance of future ultra-high bypass ratio engines. .
