Decarbonising the maritime transport with ammonia

Thermal engines are inarguably the prevalent technology powering the maritime sector worldwide, predominantly with fossil fuels. Solid evidence suggests that such engines will maintain a large share of the market for decades to come. Read more

Thermal Management for Future Aerospace Propulsion

Context. Global targets to cut carbon-dioxide emissions by 2050 are pushing forward the development of sustainable aircraft. If action is not taken, the annual atmospheric CO. Read more

Multi-body Hypersonic Aerodynamics PhD

This is a full funded PhD (fees and bursary) in hypersonic aerodynamics in collaboration with EPSRC. The overall aim of the research is to investigate what are the aerodynamic interference characteristics, at hypersonic speeds, that are likely to adversely affect multibody separation. Read more

Building integrated Photvoltaic for existing buildings

As the quest for sustainable building increases, Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) promises to be a viable energy source that easily blends with modern architectural materials. Read more

Biocoal research for use in heritage steam railways

The UK has over 200 heritage railway lines in operation. Traditionally these have run on coal, preferably Welsh steam coal, a form of bituminous coal known for its good calorific values, low sulphur content and semi smokeless properties. Read more

Advancing Hydrogen Flow Measurement: Thermophysical Properties and Advanced Thermodynamic Models

The transportation of hydrogen is a cornerstone of the emerging hydrogen economy. However, accurately measuring hydrogen flow rate presents unique challenges due to its physical properties and potential impurities. Read more

Experimental Investigation of Singular Two-phase Pressure Losses Relevant to Nuclear System Thermal-hydraulic Applications

A fully funded 4-year EPSRC ICASE PhD Studentship, co-sponsored by Westinghouse, is available in the Nuclear Futures Institute at Bangor University to design and perform experiments at the THOR loop to measure two-phase pressure drop across selected simple geometrical singularities within a relevant range of conditions. Read more

ML-driven Design for Fusion Reactors

The UKRI AI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Decision Making for Complex Systems is a joint CDT between The University of Manchester and the University of Cambridge. Read more

Approximation-Assisted Transient Vapor Compression Cycle Modeling under Fast Fluid Dynamics Simulated Built Environment

Transient simulation of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems is of dire needs. Such model serves as the digital-twin representation of the actual building thermal envelope conditions for the purposes for control optimizations as well as thermal comfort improvements. Read more

Multi-Physics Optimization of Control Valve Structure – An Integrated approach with Approximation Assisted Models

This research proposed a control valve optimization approach based on multi-physics fluid dynamics modeling. This allows for the rapid completion of key component structural design to achieve the control valve's performance requirements. Read more
