Computational Engineering and Design

A person in front of screen with software open.

We're a centre for multidisciplinary engineering simulation and design, and combine a range of analytical, computational and experimental techniques.

Part of Engineering

About

Our 3 main research themes are:

  • design search and optimisation
  • applied computational modelling
  • computational methods

The strength of our research is based on combining engineering methods with industrial applications. For example, we are developing grid-based, problem-solving services for academia and industry. Our research has many applications, and our activities include:

  • using computational methods for studying design and related problems in fluids, structures, control systems and biomechanics
  • evolutionary optimisation
  • constructing advanced cost-prediction systems
  • optimising metamodelled, approximate or noisy systems and analysis of robustness

We also host:
