Resilient Cooling Systems for Buildings


Project Description

Resilient Cooling describes low energy cooling solutions for buildings that strengthen the ability of individuals and our community as a whole to withstand, and also prevent, thermal and other impacts of changes in global and local climates.
This project aims to develop cooling solutions for buildings, which are efficient, affordable and climate-protective, but also robust and supportive in cases of extreme weather occurrences in the context of a specific climate. The project will focus on the study of ventilation systems and how these could provide acceptable indoor air quality and cooling during the summer period through thermal mass utilization, Phase Change Materials and off-peak storage.

A student with a mechanical engineering background will be most suited for this project. Familiarity with buildings and their services will be an advantage.

Funding Notes

Brunel offers a number of funding options to research students that help cover the cost of their tuition fees, contribute to living expenses or both. See more information here: View Website. Recently the UK Government made available the Doctoral Student Loans of up to £25,000 for UK and EU students and there is some funding available through the Research Councils. Many of our international students benefit from funding provided by their governments or employers. Brunel alumni enjoy tuition fee discounts of 15%.)
