Research project(s)

Universality of fine-scale turbulence

Towards biologically-inspired active-compliant-wing micro-air-vehicles

Experimental and Theoretical Investigations of Lymphatic Fluid Flows and Immunology

Physics and control of turbulent wall-flows

Novel experimental characterisation of elastic & acoustic metamaterial as produced using additive manufacturing technology

This research started in April 2019 and is intended to last for three years. The aim of this work is to use experimental means to characterise the dynamics of existing mechanical structures with periodic features, improve their design from a dynamic viewpoint and explore the benefits of additive manufacturing technology for that purpose. As this project is funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme and is performed in collaboration with Vestas Aircoil, the application in focus will be heat exchangers.
